Happy 131st Birthday Agatha Christie (if she was still alive), and we are so happy that you were born ❤
Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie, Lady Mallowan, DBE was an English writer known for her 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections. I forget that she was a Dame.
Agatha Christie is probably the worlds most female author and writer, especially in the mystery and crime genre. And Then There Were None is Christie’s best-selling novel, with 100 million sales to date, making it the world’s best-selling mystery ever, and one of the best-selling books of all time.
Apparently, Agatha Christie didn’t actually like her own character, the Belgian Detective Hercule Poriot. I wonder if she would love him now, as a lot of us do?
Why not celebrate this author by:
Have a cup of English tea, in a beautiful tea cup
Read a book of hers…
Then compare that book to the more modern television shows and movies
Dress up, enjoy a fancy dinner, and make little name plates with well know Agatha Christie characters.
Again, if Ms Potter had been living she would have been 155 today. So, the chances of her being so here, are limited. However that’s not the point.
We can celebrate probably the most well known Children’s Author (that didn’t turn into a complete raving lunatic).
When I was a littler, in my younger years, I did ballet. We did a Beatrix Ballet Concert, and I was Mrs Tittlemouse and I was very good, may I say. I was very proper and lady like =D
I don’t have a favourite or most disliked Potter character. I do though find Peter Rabbit overrated, lol. There are so many good characters in Potter’s world. Just ignore the whole “Potter was the JKRowling of her day” Ugh.
Well, if she had lived…She would have been 120 today…Sooooooooo…The chances of her still being alive, are pretty nil.
However, the Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov was burn 120 years ago today.
A lot of us today are completely fascinated by this family. The Myths, the reality, the stories … They have to be one of the most fascinating Royal Families in History. They were around for such a long time and then it fell so quickly. With that the stories and Myths came and have never really been out of our collective conscious.
Did Anastasia escape? (They’re pretty sure she didn’t’)
Would the Heir apparent, Alexei Nikolaevich, Tsarevich, even have survived to Rule?
Did you know? In actual fact, Russians have never ever said ‘Huzzah!
This weekend in some states in Australia has been a nice long weekend. Which if you follow me on ym Instagram, you’ll know I spent most of it doing nothing, and it was glorious! I had to finish off some homework, but that was all that HAD to get done.
So why the long weekend?
Well this is the weekend that we celebrate Queen’s Elizabeth birthday.
So Happy Birthday Your Majesty. Her actually birthday is the 21 April 1926. However a lot of the Commonwealth celebrate her birthday during the Summer in the UK. You might see some news about “Colouring the Troops” Which is the UK Military saying Happy Birthday to the Queen. The tradition of the British monarch celebrating two birthdays stems back to 1748, during the reign of King George II. As the king’s birthday fell in late autumn, the weather wasn’t suitable for a large, public celebration in honour of his birthday.
But Lauren, you said Two Queens.
Yes, yes I did.
Today is also and always has been officially this Queens birthday too.
This is my “baby brother” Hahahaha…Although, for a long time now, there has been nothing “baby” about him. Can’t you see you the family resemblance. And how many other big sisters can say that they are at the height of their brothers boobs! Hahahaha.
Although he is the Golden Prince, and was spoilt something rotten. I am really proud of him. I would never tell him this, but I don’t want him to come back to our state. I believe he only started to “grow up” when he left our state. I think he would flounder if he ever came back here.
It’s April 1st and I am hoping passed midday for a lot of you, but April 1st means it’s the first day of my birthday month!
I’m still allowed to do this, right? Like I don’t have kids yet. So I get to have a whole month, right? Even if it’s me, haha.
This week, what I’m starting to do is a music challenge for the month of April =D It’s supposed to be a daily challenge, but my weekend is quiet full this week. So apart from today, this rest will be posted on the Sunday.
Day 1: A song you like with a colour in the title.
Brown Eyed Girl – Van Morrison … Let’s get this long weekend started!
My first post for 2021! I wanted to start 2021 with a complete positive post! What is more positive than wishing a very celebrated and beloved author a happy birthday.
If Tolkien was still alive, he would have been 129…Probably not very probable then.
I have always loved Middle Earth and Tolkiens world, more than any other world. Including Arthurian! I really love the Arthurian world, I want to name (if I have a) my daughter Morgana. I don’t think I could name a girl Arwen or Eowyn, she’d get bullied I actually would prefer Arwen, but sensibility wise, it has to be Morgana. You know…Duhhh…
Tolkien created a magical powerful world, all down to the little details, and Tolkien NEVER went with popular fan theories unlike some authors *coughs* Rowling *coughs*. Tolkien’s work was original. Yes, the eagles annoy everyone, but one, read the books, and two, read the books.
In Australia, it’s #BeatrixPotter birthday today…What is your favourite Beatrix Potter character? If it is Peter Rabbit (lol) whose your next favourite? I once played Mrs Tittlemouse for a ballet concert =D When I was little, I used to be obsessed with the Beatrix Potter ballet movie. Just like The Red Shoes, it was kind of scary and I wonder why my parents let me watch it,lol. You have the Owl kidnap Squirrel Nutkin, take his tail, and gives him a wink as he leaves. Than Mr Fox, steals Jemima Puddle-Duck egg, to eat and tries to eat her as well, and Mister Jeremy Fisher, almost gets eaten alive by fish,lol.
I was just thinking for my birthday, that I might actually try to “Twitch” that night. My birthday is the 29th of April, so it’s Wednesday, kind of annoying…Not that I can actually go anywhere,lol.
Possibly, the weekend after my birthday I am heading to my Mums and taking some of our favourite pizza and doing birthday things. So we can both drink and neither of us have to drive. I’ve got someone who can take me back. The weekend before I am having a Disney night with my partner, because we’re the only ones who can. It would just be nice to do something on my birthday, and this would definitely be different. The weekends might swap though,lol. Usually my mum and I go out to dinner for my b’day, but we can’t this year, obviously.
So, what is Twitch?
Twitch is probably the world’s leading live streaming platform for gamer’s.
The main “Plan”
So my plan is just to basically, more than likely, use my Sims game as what I would be twitching with. That way you could all watch me play the Sims, and you don’t have to do a thing! With Twitch, you can watch and chat, like text messaging. You can eat and drink, while celebrating with me!
Since I don’t have children, I totally get a whole birthday month…Right?
What a bad time of year to have a birthday right now.
I honestly don’t know what to do with myself at this time of the year, at the moment. My birthday isn’t until the end of the month. Usually I have all these plans, including blogging plans. There’s just been so much going on! I don’t know if I’ll even be able to celebrate my birthday with just small family. Everyone wants us to have a house warming, which probably wont happen until…sometime,lol.
My Grandmama (who would hit me over the head for calling her that,lol). Is turning…Well a lady never tells of another ladies age. It’s an important number though. Her baby brother is even coming all the way from the UK. He has never been here before! It’s a pretty big deal!
I had one idea of buying her a necklace with the birth stone of her parents and her children. As my own brother mentioned though. It might make her depressed at such a “late stage”. So I have been going back and forth between it. One day I’ll think it’s a sweet idea, but she has been “losing it” a little lately >.< She’s supposed to be the most mentally sound of all of us. I think one day it’ll make her happy and then another it’ll just make her depressed.
One thing I have already bought her is a collection of Oscar Wilde stories. My Gran was a Librarian and she has always loved books. She’s got such a big book case! I’m always borrowing books from her. She also really loves Ravens, they are her “animal”. Like Lions, Wolves and Owls are mine…and her mothers. I have only been able to find one “thing” of a Raven, that’s actually nice and hasn’t got all death surrounding it.
I still like the idea of the birthstone, and the family tree. This where you all come in. Also, if you want to add any ideas to my Discord channel, please free too! I have added a channel “craftamake” Where people can share ideas and ask for Craft ideas.
