"WHY? WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?" I hear you cry (or wish you would be asking). I hope that this post kind of clears that up.
I've acquired a volunteering job at this little grand old house nearby:
This is Ham House, owned by the National Trust. I'm currently a Room Guide over the summer which means I help visitors understand what they're looking at and tell them about the function of the room. It's been so good so far - a lot of talking - especially with those visitors that love history and want to be told about the house. I'm there every Friday now over the summer. I've always loved history but as I'm not doing a History course at university after doing the subject for 10 years since I was 7 (I'm so old now...), this is SUCH a good way to let my geeky history side out especially if a visitor asks me anything to do with the Tudors.

small for me. But I was the only one that could fit
I've been following The White Queen since the beginning which I like. Although as I did the War of the Roses for A level, I'm sometimes like 'That didn't happen!' when watching and I kind of know what happens in the end...
Anyway, that's what I've been up to. I'm around, just not at a computer or laptop. It's going to be a busy summer hopefully as I wait for 15th August for results day *shivers*. I still love my blog and the blogging world but sometimes life just gets in the way as I'm sure most of you know.
Keep watching out for things at Rebecca-Books. There are many exciting things coming up....
