Giles Coren's new book.

Hello blog readers. I'm back to tell you about Giles Coren's new book called How to Eat Out.

Here's a link:

If you read the product description you'll see that it mentions Sue Perkins, so here's hoping that she's mentioned in the book (I'm sure she will be). Also, from the product description, and knowing what Giles' writing is like, I'm sure it'll be a good read.

I also hope to attend an upcoming event of his soon, and so I'll definitely be posting a blog post about that. Also, not wanting to jynx things, but I hope I can get another pic of him to put on my blog. That would be awesome!

Last time I met him it was great, so I'm sure if I get to meet him again, it will be equally as great, if not more so.

Here is a screenshot I took of Giles Coren on The Times website from Saturday. The article from Saturday's Times Magazine included an extract from his new book.

Thank you for reading. Bye for now.

Foxes. They're everywhere!

In recent news, other than what I put in my last blog post, I have taken a keen interest in foxes lately. This is because of two things: 1. There have been two foxes visiting my garden lately. 2. There was a show on Channel 4 called Foxes Live: Wild in the City.

Firstly, these foxes in my garden have been visiting my garden either every day, or every other day. They have also seemed quite calm, especially the one that I believe is a female fox, which I have named Barryetta, because at first I thought it was probably a male fox, but then I changed my mind.

Secondly, the show on Channel 4 was on for about 2 weeks, and gave us an insight into the lives of foxes, whether they live in urban or rural areas of this country. It also encouraged viewers to get involved in a survey it was doing, which was to estimate how many foxes, roughly, are living in the UK.

This show, and having foxes in my garden at the same time, has been a very funny coinsidence, but one I have enjoyed, and I've even taken several pics of these foxes in my garden. And just to prove it to you, here's a few for you to look at...

The one at the top is called Franklin, who was named by one of my followers on Twitter.
And the one at the bottom is called Barryetta. She's the one I named, and is the one who spends most of the time in my garden.

Barryetta is very sleepy and calm most of the time. And she even looks up at me, while I watch her from inside my house. Unlike some people, I am not afraid of foxes, but I'm also not wanting to keep one as a pet. Yes, some people do, but I think, a bit like cats that come in and out of my garden, there is a safe distance that people and animals should stay from each other. Obviously, only if you're not too familiar with an animal and think it may harm you. But I know that if I did approach Barryetta, she'd probably be fairly calm and relaxed with me, seeing as she has already seen me, and knows I'm living where I am.

Anyway, that's it for now. Thank you for reading.

What's going on with me?

So, I'm here to tell you all what's going on with me. Why have I not blogged on here for so long? Am I giving this blog up? *gasps* Of course not! I've just had a lot on my plate lately (no pun intended), and I've been too busy to blog. But if I've learnt anything from being on the internet, and sharing stuff with people I don't know, I know that it will always be a part of my life. And I'm still going to blog, I'm just not blogging as much.

So... my life lately is hectic, to say the least. Apart from Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube and Blogger being a part of my leisure activities, I have also had a big thing that I had to do yesterday. A quite scary, big, nerve-wracking thing. It was not enjoyable. But it had to be done. My whole future could depend on it. Don't worry though, it's not life-threatening. I'm not going to die from an incureable disease.

And what's more, I went out for lunch after this big thing, and I had an omelette and a cappuccino, and also a choc-chip shortbread. And that was very yummy and enjoyable. I don't eat out every day, so a lunch out was a nice treat for me.

I have also met a few new people on Twitter. These include people who are fans of people I like, but also people who are not. Nonetheless, I have enjoyed tweeting these people, and one of which was very excited to find out that I've met Joanna Lumley. As proof of this, I shall include a pic of one of her autographs that she signed for me.

She was very lovely to me, as you may already know. And she stroked my cheek and told me never to give up, particularly on my dream of being an actress. Of course, acting is not the only thing I enjoy doing. I love singing, drawing, making videos and writing, etc. But I have always wanted to act, from a very young age. And obviously, like everything else, I'm not giving it up, or the hope of doing it as a career anyway. I have thought about joining a local theatre, and as soon as other stuff in my life has finished, then I will pursue my dream some more.

Thank you for reading my latest blog post. I hope to write more here soon.

Lots of love, Ss1. xxx
