My Handy Crush Saga

My Handy Crush Saga

As it’s almost that time of year again, (and I’ve had a surge in new followers recently – hello and welcome!) I thought I’d reshare my Valentine crush post from last year.

My tastes remain the same with an added edition this year of ‘Floki’ from Vikings (not sure how I missed him before). See the guyliner reference further along for an explanation – oh and I discovered he’s a Skarsgard (Gustaf to be precise), so naturally he has good genes!

I’ve got 99 skills but maybe this aint one…

A balmy, mid-July afternoon with clear skies and only a few buzzing insects to break the silence. That is, until a roar annihilated the idyllic surroundings, as ten battle-hungry warriors charged forwards to meet equal numbers mounting a small hill. Just like a scene from Braveheart.

Before I head into review-ville…

Happy Yorkshire Day everyone!

Yes, the 1st of August celebrates all things Yorkshire, the largest (and greatest!) county in the UK, apparently full of no nonsense grafters who single-handedly won the Olympics in 2012. (I’m obviously biased, having occupied a small area of this county all my life and very proud I am to be a good Yorkshire lass!) 😉


Reviews

Okay, on with the post! I’d thought I’d been lacking in the TV and Film category of late (I may have to rename it), so today I bring you a selection of 5 reviews: A film, a series, a book, a show and a game. I’m no expert / critic, so these are merely my own opinions on things I’ve enjoyed over the last few weeks or days.
