Weird sky

29 Jan

Weird sky

Not the best photo because I had to capture it on my phone in a moving car…but the sun was setting but we were driving into a rain storm. So the sky was split into clear sky and a massive cloud of blackness! Looked really odd and scary! Just thought I would share!

Bicentennial of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice

28 Jan

Today marks the 200th anniversary of the publication of arguably the most famous of Jane Austen’s works. I was delighted to hear on the news this morning that in order to mark the occasion, the Jane Austen Centre in Bath is holding a reading of the book which will be broadcast online via webcam with several people (including celebrities) giving voices to it’s characters. I think it is such a wonderful idea and unites people from across the world, it is live right now so here is the link: http://www.janeausten.co.uk/janeaustenreadathon/

If you have never read the book before, or any of Jane Austen’s works for that matter, I suggest you rectify that now! There is something so soothing and enjoyable about her writing that every time I read one of her books I am instantly transported to the 1800s and have a happy party in my head! ๐Ÿ™‚ If you are looking for some motivation, there will also be a Pride and Prejudice Bicentenary Challenge held this year, run by Austenprose.com. It runs from January 1 2013 until December 31st 2013 and encourages people to read and discuss the book with other Jane Austen fanatics. Enrollment runs until the July 1st 2013, where you can select your level of participation, whether it be light or hardcore, and you are invited to review your selections on your blogs/social media sites, or simply by leaving a comment. The link is: http://austenprose.com/2012/12/31/the-pride-and-prejudice-bicentenary-challenge-2013 And it isn’t just books, for those of you who don’t have much time in the day for reading, you are also invited to review movies aswell. So if you haven’t ever read one of her books or seen any of the films…NOW is the time to get involved and see what all the fussis about! It is worth it trust me!

I myself will be participating in this challenge as I think it is a wonderful idea and an excuse to re-read some of my favourite stories, including one of the best love stories ever told, that being Pride and Prejudice. Happy reading people! ๐Ÿ™‚

Recognise this!?

Again I have failed to take another current photo…work tends to get in the way! However…here is one of my favourite photos that I took last year. Any idea where this is and why it looks so familiar!?

Beer pebbles…not literally

Beer pebbles...not literally

Since I am already failing at this photo a day malarky, I have chosen a photo that I have taken only a couple of weeks ago on the beach at Beer. It was taken with my new camera in all fairness! ๐Ÿ˜› I promise to take an up to date photo tomorrow! ๐Ÿ™‚
