May Wrap-Up

May seems to have literally flown by, and I’m not honestly sure why! Perhaps because my reading felt slower this month, because I was reading slightly longer books than usual?  Who knows!

Favourite things I did this month:

  • Made a Tardis cake – Okay, to be honest, actually making the cake was a bit of a nightmare, but it turned out okay in the end and it made my sister happy!
  • Topped up my hair colour – You may remember that in April I went from blonde to red – and also that the red just did not want to stick!  I’ve had my hair topped up again since, basically loading it with as much colour as possible.  The hairdresser ended up putting a literally Irn bru orange dye on, but my hair is definitely now more copper and I love it!

Reading







(I apparently had a thing for black and red covers this month)
