    December ’19 book haul

    Good morning bookworms, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I’m gonna be honest, it feels kind of weird being New Years at the moment. Our fireworks got canceled a week ago because of the total fire ban in place with all of our bushfires.* We’ve had friends be evacuated from their homes yesterday and a lot of people spent the night at…

    BE Winter ’19: All I Want For Christmas…

    Good afternoon bookworms! This is my third and final post for Book Ending Winter this year! Also, I know it’s past Christmas, so this is kind of a “I did get this, I wish I had gotten this, and maybe if I’m good I’ll get it next year…” post instead!! This post is part of Bookending Winter 2019, which is…

    BE Winter ’19: Ways a Villain Could Ruin the Holidays

    Good evening bookworms! You all thought I forgot that I signed up for BE Winter, didn’t you?! Well, you’re probably right. I kept thinking to myself “there’s something that I meant to post this month…” and I just couldn’t remember. But then when I started to catch up on blog-hopping and I was seeing all the posts, that still didn’t…

    Christmas book tags

    Good morning bookworms! MERRY CHRISTMAS!! (It’s Christmas in Australia, ok? Your turn will come soon!!) I was tagged in 3 Christmas themed tags in the last week, and I just could squeeze them into my schedule, so I’m swapping them out for my regular WWW Wednesday and doing them today instead! Firstly, we had the Joy of Christmas book tag…

  • Mrs Claus’ Read-a-thon

    Good evening bookworms! Welcome to another edition of “Meeghan signs herself up for more things than she can handle”… or can she? Who knows?! She can definitely stop talking about herself in the third person though… *mh-hm* Anyway… Gorgeous Sam @ Fictionally Sam is hosting this wonderful read-a-thon, and due to the fact that I’ve been devouring romance books like…

    Meeghan’s 12 Days of Christmas

    Good morning bookworms! Today’s post is kind of different. Different in the sense that I’m actually not here to talk to you about books that I have read, am currently reading, or want to read… but rather what books are on your Christmas list (or Hanukkah list, or birthday list, or just general wishlist – no religious denominations required). In…

    Mini life update 2018

    Hi guys! I hope you had a nice Christmas, and best wishes for the coming New Year! I’ve decided to postpone the remainder of my posts I had planned for the last week of the year. The reason behind this is that we didn’t have a great Christmas. We were away visiting family from the 22nd, and on Christmas Eve…

    Joy Of Christmas Book Tag

    We are so close to Christmas it’s ridiculous! I am currently eating my weight in gingerbread and lounging under the air conditioner because it’s supposed to be starting at 31°C (87°F) moving to 36°C (97°F) this week but it definitely feels hotter than that! Definitely a week to lie by the pool under an umbrella (skin cancer is real kids)…

    Holidays ’18 TBR

    Good morning bookworms! I’m on holidays! And I’m in the middle of packing my suitcase for our trip north to see our families! And because we’re taking the car, I can pack AS MANY BOOKS AS I WANT because there isn’t a luggage weight limit. Also, we’ll be gone for almost three weeks, so I’ll definitely want to pack a…

  • Brandy Custard

    My favourite side with plum pudding at Christmas time is Brandy Custard.  Well, brandy custard and ice cream.  I use a family recipe, and while it’s probably a little heavy on the brandy side, it is what I am used to (and besides, isn’t Christmas a perfect time for a little indulgence?). Ingredients 550g* of milk (full cream / full…

  • Butter cookies

    Yum!  Butter cookies!  These are absolutely one of my favourites at Christmas time, and are perfect with either a tall glass of milk (because it is summer in Australia at Christmas time), or a delicious mug of hot chocolate… or spiked egg-nog! They are equally delicious the rest of the year as well, and a good recipe for kids too. Ingredients…
