I have recently rediscovered my love for jeans. They were worn almost everyday from the ages of 12-17 and the thought of wearing anything else was terrifying; skirts and dresses were a foreign concept. 5 years later, in the space of a week, i have purchased 3 pairs of skinny jeans from Topshop (2 from ebay ;)). The baxter jeans were bought first; £13 from ebay, waist 25" with a 28" leg, fit like a dream. The second pair, £25 (brand new leigh forest green) have a 26" waist with a 30" leg, not so dreamy, leg is fine but are skin tight! I imagine this is how they are meant to be however. The third pair (£8 ebay, another pair of baxters) have a 26" waist with a 30" leg, not so great as the first pair but are tres comfortable.

At the moment i am bidding on the pippa jeans on ebay, i have heard good things about them and yes, i know i am late to the joni party.

Berkhamsted Castle

Back in May, we travelled to Hertfordshire to visit Berkhamsted's Norman motte-and-bailey castle.

Originally a motte-and-bailey then, this was thrown up after the battle of Hastings in order to monitor the route from the Midlands to London - serving as a strategic fortification for William I. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, mentions Berkhamsted as the place where the archbishop of York, Edgar aetheling, earl Edwin and earl Morcar, surrendered to William (they probably didn't have any choice):

'He (William) went up with all the army that was left to him, and those who had since come over the sea, and ravaged all the parts he went over, until he came to Berkhamsted. There he was met by archbishop Aldred, child Edgar, eorl Edwin, eorl Morkere and all the best men of London'

So was Berkhamsted castle thrown up before or after the men surrendered? Well, before it was held by Robert of Mortain (William's younger half-brother), Domesday Book reveals that the town was held by Ea…

My second gig this year, still can't believe it!

The View were awesome!<3 nbsp="" p="">
Earlier on in the day, we attended the British Library's Russian Revolution exhibition - Click, and it was brilliant, very detailed. And you don't even have to be a History Undergraduate like me to take it in/enjoy it :) Beginning with the peasant emancipation and ending with Lenin's death, it's a modern Historian's dream!

We were also very lucky with the weather!

My next post will be about Berkhamsted Castle.

Blakes Wood

There's nothing more relaxing than a walk in the woods. And Blakes Wood in Danbury is the perfect place to go in order to 'blow the cobwebs away' <3 p="">
