Exciting news and a break to scheduled posting to announce that I will be carrying the Olympic Torch through Kidlington (village north of Oxford) on 9th July! I was nominated for the work that I have done for Mind raising awareness and money by my swimming challenges over the last three years. Very very excited to have this involvement in the Olympics, and very excited to be able to honour Mind by my involvement. I hope to come up with some more fundraising in 2012 to tie in with my torchbearing.
I love books, baking and my boyfriend, and love to write about the first two. I particular love "forgotten" books, books brought out of obscurity by republication and those still languishing in obscurity. I'm currently reading my way through all of the Virago Modern Classics, but taking in other books along the way.
