This Thursday, we’re also going back to 2014 were I had the pleasure of interviewing BBC television presenter Liz Bonnin alongside The Young Scientists Journal. We talked about loads of different subjects from her early childhood to inspiring even more people into science. Click here to have a read of the interview!
Today in the UK, it’s A-Level Results Day when thousands of students across the country will find out if they got into their university of choice. To hopefully add to the celebrations across the country, my new cookbook is FREE for one day only on the Amazon Kindle Store. It’s small but packed with tonnesContinue reading “SURPRISE! | Cooking Goes Green”
This is the first post in a mini series, where I’ll be dedicating posts to all the things I love. The first in the series is all about Wildlife Photography. You can have a look at some of my photos here. Every animal – much like humans do, has their own individual personality. Just byContinue reading “Wildlife Photography |#WhyILove”
I love chimpanzees, they’re amazing creatures who share 98% of our DNA and are unbelievably expressive. This selection of pictures is of Elizabeth a baby chimp at Wingham Wildlife Park near Canterbury, Kent.
This is the final installment of my mini-series on my back operation. Things were finally looking up – I was getting stronger and a little bit faster. This is where I really should mention my Dad. Sometimes (actually a fair amount 😉 ) he drives me bonkers – he’s all about exercise. But to beContinue reading “Faster. Higher. Stronger |Part 3”

I had a number of slightly strange things happening initially – I was adamant the nurses were naked, and very confused as to why they hadn’t put any clothes on. I was of courseContinue reading “Crisps, Naked Nurses and Other Strange Goings On| Part 2”
I can do anything I want – unless…. Unless you give me some reallllyyy awkward sandals to put on, tell me to bend and touch my toes or anything which requires a similar level of flexibility – those are incredibly small things to complain about, and I’m not complaining at all, those are just myContinue reading “I’m round the bend (literally not mentally)…. | Part 1”
If you’re on a budget, trawling the supermarket aisles for inspiration on that night’s dinner can be a challenge, particularly if you’ve made the rookie error of being hungry before you head off to the supermarket. Sometimes it’s also easy to slip into old habits, and just pick something you always have – it isContinue reading “Getting Food Inspiration… |#FoodieFriday”
The Eurasian bear is one of the subspecies of the brown bear – it can be huge as males can reach 800 pounds and females between 300 and 500 pounds. To put that into perspective, 800 pounds is like taking at least 57 fully grown adult males and converting them to bear form! As farContinue reading “The Eurasian Bear”
Every Thursday I’ll be posting a throwback to a previous event, whether that’s in my own life or a scientific event in history. This post is taking us back to 2014 when the Young Scientists Journal hosted its first annual conference at The Kings School in Canterbury. I attended the conference as a blogger, editorContinue reading “The Young Scientists Journal Conference |#ThrowbackThursday”
