Britain and the Celtic Iron Age


by Simon James and Valery Rigby. Published by British Museum Press. ISBN 0 7141 2306 4
I got this book out the library for research into this period in time and I am really impressed with it. There aren’t many books about the Iron Age, but some of the ones on Amazon are about £160!! This one is an affordable £9.99 and basically tells you all you need to know if you have an interest or are doing a school project. Many of the other books of this period are written by historians who get so wrapped up in their own opinions and theories about the lifestyles of these people who lived so long ago, they forget to look at the evidence.
According to the blurb, Simon James and Valery Rigby work at the British Museum, and obviously know their subject, while writing in clear English for all to understand. All their information is backed up by archaeological evidence and we’re told exactly which excavation it came from. When they make theories, we’re told the reasons why, and not simply told this is fact, like other writers (and television presenters) do.
The book is also well presented with diagrams and photos on every page so we’re not faced with boring text and we get more of a feel for the age. It has definitely helped me out and I recommend it highly.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them review (no spoilers)
November 20, 2016
This is just a quick extra post because I went to watch this film last night and thought it was absolutely fantastic! As Harry Potter fans, we were very excited in this household and the kids and I dressed up for the occasion in 1920’s style outfits! We ate a meal first at the Frankie & Benny’s opposite the Cineworld cinema in Yeovil (which, by the way is hugely improved from last time we went there – I think they’ve employed new kitchen staff) and sneaked pudding, in the form of chocolate buttons, in my bag into Screen eight!….
Slissie review
A chance to curb your cravings? A review of the Slissie
June 5, 2017
This is a new product, so I’ll begin by telling you what on earth a Slissie is! To be honest, it’s a bit difficult to explain, but it’s a weight-loss device that looks a little bit like a vape, and you suck on it like it is a vape, however there’s no actual vapour! Instead, it releases a burst of flavour into your mouth, and the idea is that it will trick your brain into thinking you’ve eaten something sweet, and therefore your cravings will be satisfied without actually having the calories of eating anything…..
Anti-reflective coating on your glasses – is it worth it?
October 9, 2016
Whenever I’m recording a You Tube video in my work-room, all I seem to do is spin round in circles trying not to have massive white rectangles on my glasses. They somehow even manage to appear with my back to the window! When Chris is taking photos for my Weekly Wardrobe posts, we’ve more-or-less given up with glasses, so I stumble about blind for the sake of not having glaring white blobs in the middle of my face. (Hashtag blogger problems.) I am so short-sighted, I cannot see a thing without them, and I hate that feeling so much. So finally, even though there was nothing particularly wrong with my glasses, I decided to splash out and buy a new pair with anti-reflective coating….
