Things About Myself

1.  I have a love for notebooks, all shapes, sizes and colours, even if I never write in them, I love them!

2.  I fell in love with coffee only about 6 months ago.

3.  My new prized possession is a Post Card from my wonderful Mum from Fort Augustus, a town at the end of Loch Ness.  Disappointed she didn’t get to see the monster!

4.  I seem to keep putting off accepting these awards because I find it difficult finding things to tell about myself.

5.  My 10 year old daughter and I are at the beginning of knitting a scarf.  She wants to give it to her teacher, so Miss Bullock I am sure you will love your holey beautiful scarf!

6.  I have a new found love for Melanie C, from the Spice Girls, after I recently heard her sing “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” at Jesus Christ Superstar, AMAZING!

Add Your Piece of History… 22nd June

22 Jun
  • On this day in 1992.  Two skeletons excavated in Yekaterinburg, Russia are identified as Czar Nicholas II and his wife.   Czar Nicholas II was the last crowned Emperor of Russia.  He ruled from 1894 until he was forced to abdicate in 1917 amidst civil war.  A year later, on 17 July 1918, he and his wife, together with their 5 children, the family doctor and 3 attendants, were taken to the cellar of a house in Yekaterinburg.  They were told to line up for a family portrait, but instead a detachment of Bolsheviks burst in and began firing, killing the family and servants. 

  • On this day in 1949.  Meryl Streep celebrates her birthday today.  Streep was born in Summit, New Jersey.  She has stared in movies such as The Devil Wears Prada (2006),  The River Wild (1994), Death Becomes Her (1992),  Mamma Mia (2008) and It’s Complicated (2009).


  • On this day in 1772.  Slavery was outlawed in England.  Lord Chief Justice Mansfield rules that English law does not support slavery.
    Please feel free to add your piece of history (something personal or general history).
