From the sublime to the ridiculous - or rather the dumb - here are five things that I just happened to learn this week.

This weekend, thanks to a bit of baking, I realised there's a subtle difference between getting better at what you enjoy and working to improve what you do every day.
My week has not been without words: they were just published over on Daily Info because I went and watched a bunch of music and reviewed it.
2015 is the year of adventure because I looked back at 2014 and searched for the best moment I could think of. The answer was obvious: Bestival.

This post is my personal love letter to my very special new home. Finally, I'm where I belong.
Writing is my profession, my fun and more. My brain on the other hand is a little more limited in its functionality.
