Review: The Staff Room – Theatre N16

Above a busy pub in Balham, Theatre N16 hosted a full-house for the first performance of Michelle Payne’s one-act play, The Staff Room. Taking place entirely in the staff room of a secondary school in Essex, Payne’s play follows three very different young teachers as they attempt to make sense of teaching, teenagers and their own impending adulthood.

#GIRLBOSS - Sophia Amoruso

#GIRLBOSS was a book I’d wanted to read for a while; back when it was published last year it was everywhere, and even now it still seems to be a staple blogger photo prop.

I’ll admit, I didn’t know much about the book before reading it. I was a complete sucker for the hype with this one, and was mostly intrigued to see what the fuss was about.

The Sunday Brunch Post, Episode XV

If this post is live and you’re reading it then that means I’ve managed to get it up and scheduled in time before a few days with no WiFi. Go me.

It’s been quite an exciting month. Last Sunday Brunch I was saying that we were about to start our flat hunt again, and am I super happy to tell you that as of yesterday we are now living in our beautiful new place.

I’m hoping that living in London is going to mean a lot more exciting blog content, as there is now so much to do right on my doorstep. And of course, I will have at least a room tour post up for you in the next few weeks.

Review: The Blackbird Singularity – Matt Wilven

Although I was genuinely interested to read Lingua Franca, Chains of Sand and Owl Song at Dawn and really enjoyed all three, I knew before I even received my copy from Legend Press that my relationship with The Blackbird Singularity would be different. This is the kind of book that, in a store surrounded by hundreds of others, I would pick out for myself. This is the kind of story that I hope to find in the pages of every book I open. And this is the kind of narrative that I strive to write every time I pick up my own figurative pen.
