Waterloo part 2 – Balls and Battles

Tweet So the ball and the battle? Well I said I’d write about those next so that’s what I’m going to do. As I’m sure you all know, in 1815 on June 17th there was a big ball held in Brussles; the Duchess of Richmond’s Ball. And at this ball many of the British officers were attending, as well as all the high and mighty people of society who were present. And it was during this ball that a messenger came with the news that Napoleon’s army was getting close, and Lord Wellinton (who was also at the ball) informed … Continue reading

Waterloo part 1 – Camp life

Tweet Greetings everyone! After I wrote last time things with the blog have not worked out quite like I planned. We were traveling for 5 weeks with no internet at all and when we came back the internet at our home had been shut off until Christmas sometime, because of them re-doing the whole system. Also my plans of using Instagram more hasn’t so far worked very well either, it for some reason refuses to work on my phone despite all the things I’ve done to try to get it working. But I haven’t completely given up on it yet. … Continue reading

Checking in really quickly

Tweet Hello everyone! This is just a short brief post to check in with you guys. It’s been a crazy last few weeks.

As I’m sure many of you know next weekend is the big 200 year anniversary reenactment of the battle of Waterloo in Belgium. Like thousands of others Andrew and I … Continue reading

My outfits are finally done! This is what they looked like on the catwalk!

Tweet Ok finallay, after a whole school year of sewing a couple of days ago it was time for the end of year show and catwalk. I’ve already mentioned this coming up, and it was a very stressful week leading up to it, we had a different project (costumes for a big opera that we had been asked to make!) that needed to be completed in very short time. So it was a very full on week with long days. And then there was the catwalk!    We all had the choice between being part of the catwalk or have … Continue reading

My readers are the best! :)

Tweet I once again want to thank you for your fantastic responses to my previous post. It was such an encouragement to read your thougths and opinions. And once again it was a reminder to myself of how sometimes when battelling a question in my mind and coming to no conclusion sometimes asking for help isn’t such a bad idea really. Because I can really be one of those persons who won’t ask for help but will try to solve everything myself. And the silly thing about it is that I know people are often so happy to help! So … Continue reading

Thoughts regarding this blog

Tweet You have probably all noticed that when it comes to this blog I have long been struggling to keep it going the way I used to. And I feel this is something I want to talk to you about.   Of course one of the reasons that I have been posting less often is simply because of life getting in the way, different things that keep me busy or just simply a lack of energy for writing. But apart from this there is also the fact that I don’t quite know where to take the blog from here. I … Continue reading
