      Something Wicked This Way Comes...   10/09/2019

      The Autumn Supporter Giveaway!       Welcome to the very first of the seasonal BCF supporter giveaways! This month also marks one year since I took on the forum, so I want to say an extra huge thank you to all of you for keeping this place going. I have a little bit more to say about that later but, for now, let's get to the giveaway!     The Autumn Giveaway winner will be getting two Penguin Little Black Classics, The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe and To Be Read At Dusk by Charles Dickens. Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week. Patreon supporters are entered automatically. If you aren't a patreon supporter but you'd like to join in with this giveaway, you can support here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum.   I really hope you're all going to like this introduction to the seasonal giveaways. It's been a lot of fun to put together. Other chocolate skulls may have been harmed during the selection process…

  3. Weight Loss and Getting in Shape

    I've done my 40 minute work-out this morning, followed by a 25 minute run/walk! *proud*
  4. Weight Loss and Getting in Shape

    How are you all doing? I've done my 4 work-outs + had my first run in... 4 months I believe. My toe is getting better so I wanted to give it a try. I started very easy though. Of the 20 minutes I probably run 10. I ran with my son (6 yo) so I kept his pace too. I'll mesure myself tomorrow or Monday... Fingers crossed!
  5. Really really really really looking forward to my holiday in London!!!!

      Thanks poppyshake! I'm sure I will :-)

    4. MysteryRose


      Aww, that's a nice thing to say, Roland Butter! And I agree with you, London is fabulous!!!!

  6. Weight Loss and Getting in Shape

    Good for you! Thanks! And did you start again? Good! Great! I am feeling stronger now too and can do more challenging things now. I think I've lost last week 1 kilo. Not much, but I see it in my clothes, so that's a good thing. I've done ok with eating in the weekend too and I am sticking to my 4 work-outs a week.
  7. Travel topic

    A few months away? Is that possible with your child going to school? I don't think it is difficult to travel with a young family. Well, it depends on what you really mean by travel, but you can go away with kids, I think. India sounds great!
  8. Weight Loss and Getting in Shape

    Be careful with your knee! You don't want to end up with permanent damage. You are running right? You do the proper warm-up and all that? Maybe the muscles of your knee are not strong enough yet for the running you do? Enjoy the Midsummer Eve!
  9. Struggeling with one of the protagonists of the book I am (trying) to write...

  10. Weight Loss and Getting in Shape

    I've done reasonably well. Although I seem not to have lost weight last week, I think this week it will continue to drop. I've definitely lost some centimeters on the right places! Yay! I've finished 4 work-outs (1x 30 minutes, 3x 40 minutes) this week and I am proud of myself. It wasn't always easy though... How have you all been doing recently? Sticking to it?
  11. Weight Loss and Getting in Shape

    Good for you! That must be feeling great!
  12. Weight Loss and Getting in Shape

    Oh, the joys of new shoes! Yes, I did enjoy the snickers and will go back to my routines. I completed 4 work-outs this week, and will do some sit-ups during the weekend.
  13. Weight Loss and Getting in Shape

    I just ate a snickers. How bad from a scale of 9 - 10 is that?
  14. Weight Loss and Getting in Shape

    Thanks Frankie! And go for that jog! ;-) I've done work-out number 3 this morning and I will go for another round tomorrow. That makes 4 workouts for this week. I've also measured myself and will do so again next week.
  15. Don't worry about it! I got it and I've felt the same sometimes. I've enjoyed "I heart New York" especially the second half of the book. It got more 'body' there I think. My next one "I heart Hollywood" is waiting now and I am looking forward to reading it.
