Hmmm. If you click on "comment" and then "more", this should take you to a page where you can sign in with your Blogger ID. Is that any help?

As a child I wasn't too fond of my name, Olivia, and as a teenager shortened it to Livvey. Now 22, I find that I rather like Olivia but everybody knows me as Livvey now! My favourite example of wishing for a different name comes from Anne of Green Gables. As any true kindred spirit knows, she longed to be called Cordelia, but in the end grew to love Anne. As long as it was spelt with an E.

Well here we are almost a entire month since I began this blog...and this is post number two. This fact exemplifies one of the major pitfalls of being an M.E/CFS blogger; the fact that things like sleeping tend to get in the way of one's delusions of cyberspace literary genius.... Continue reading

My Latin teacher at sixth-form was amazing. Suitably bearded as appears to be the fashion for the Latinite about school and a former shipping lawyer. When the "joy" of amo, amas, amat... became overwhelming, he would thrill us into submission with daring tales of piracy from the high seas. On one memorable occasion he became so despairing of our grammar that he lined us up and told us that we were about to find out the origin of the word "decimate", informing the tenth student in the line that if this were Rome, he would have been painfully killed!
They taste fabulous! They are quite Christmassy, although it has been cold enough here in Edinburgh now to almost believe it was winter. Thankfully the sun has come out now, and the cakes are still yummy :o)

I love this photo. It reminds me of a passage in Anne of Green Gables, when Anne first arrives in Avonlea and Matthew drives her through "the Avenue", lined on either side with white blossom trees.

If life were anything like a Richard Curtis film, in a few months you would be passing a massive billboard advertising his debut tour!

Just wait until I write about our Dartmouth adventure, you get lots of mentions in that! :o) xx
I can sympathise as when I returned home to Edinburgh after Christmas, the entire road was cordoned off with plastic barriers and there was a massive trench running from one end of the road to the other. Thankfully they didn't work during the night though otherwise I might have had a breakdown!

What a great idea! Please may I have a letter too? I need something creative to do to take my mind off being envious of everyone else's snow!
