About Me

Hi reader! Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! As you have probably already guessed, my name is Rachael. I was born in 1985 in a South Wales town called Caerphilly. I have a fiance, 3 beautiful children and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel called Cooper.

The reason behind the blog is simple; I love reading. I have loved reading ever since I can remember. I was born in the 80's so as children we didn't have half the technology and distractions that are here today. Books were my favourite thing. I have so many fond memories of reading as a child and so many favourite books; too many to mention! Growing up in the 90's I was obviously a fan of R L Stine's Goosebumps series! 

Possibly my favourite of all time is an Enid Blyton classic. An early edition of The Naughtiest Girl in the School. I loved it and was really upset a few years ago to find that I had gotten rid of it at some point since childhood. So much so that I tracked down an identical copy for my daughter to read (and myself of course!)

I chose to study Law at university with the intention of going on to become a practising solicitor. When I fell pregnant with my eldest daughter and became a Mum I knew things had changed and I no longer wanted the 40 hour workweek, long commutes and bringing work home to finish over the weekends. My passion for reading, though, has never waned. There have been periods over the past 11 years where I haven't read a great deal other than celebrity gossip and social media updates! I am now a Mum of 3 and I'm fortunate enough to be a stay at home Mum. Over those 11 years I have had jobs here and there and experimented with running my own businesses but nothing gave me the drive and determination to stick with it. I have also started various blogs over the years but lost interest almost immediately. I always wondered why I couldn't seem to find one thing and see it through. With hindsight, of course, the answer is obvious. Passion. Everything I did lacked passion. 

So here we are at the start of 2017 and I finally feel like I am doing something I am passionate about. Reading is my absolute passion and I also love technology. Combining the two and learning new skills is exciting and every day brings something different. I feel so grateful to be able to pursue my own dreams and who knows where my little blog will lead?

Thanks again for visiting! If you want to follow my journey you can subscribe or connect with me on social media using the buttons at the top right!
