I’m going to come out (not of the closet, i already did that), and say that i have bought A LOT of books recently. If you read my last post, i have recently taken some time off work, and that lead to a lot of independant book shop trips.

I’ve fallen in love with writing these posts, highlighting a book shop that i have fallen in love with, and want to share more of. In my last post, i talked about The Portal Book Shop, an LGBTQ+ book shop that i found in York on my travels. Today i wanted to talk about a lovely little place that i found somewhere i know pretty well.
A little while ago, one of my best friends Charlotte came to stay with us to celebrate Lois’ birthday. It was a weekend of friends, food and book shopping, including a little bit of paint a pot, and it was absolutely lovely. I picked up a couple of books that weekend so figured it was worth a small haul.
I’ve made some bad decisions in my life, some minor, and some incredibly huge. Me deciding to go on a two day ‘book bender’ to London, alone and unsupervised, was somewhere in between minor and incredibly huge.
Recently i took a trip to Belgium with one of my friends, which was a whole lot of fun but incredibly busy. We chose to stay in Brussels but travel to Bruges and Antwerp while we were there, to see a little more of the country. I absolutely adored it there, and there will be another post up about my book shopping experience and a little more about travelling soon!
It’s Easter weekend, which means plenty of things including time off work, loads of chocolate and plenty of fun. My family have always been big on spending Easter weekend together, and this year has been no exception! On Easter Sunday me and my family took a trip to Buxton to do some book shopping.
