Hello there...

After several failed attempts I have decided to start my very own blog. Many people I know have blogs to share their thoughts and to update us interested people. I was quite adamant I would not start a blog. I am in no way witty and I am not sure everyone really needs to hear my thoughts on particular things. However, I have given in and have decided to create a blog as my life takes me in a new direction.

What’s in a Name?
I debated quite a lot about what I should call this blog. With only a short while to go before I make the transition from bored call centre worker to trainee Librarian I felt it would be fitting to use this new job role in the title.  I am expecting to share my thoughts, anecdotes and no doubt a fair share of book reviews along with generally discussing my progress on my journey into becoming a fully qualified librarian. I felt the web address should not contain the word trainee as in the not so distant future I will no longer be in training!
 To start with I think the best thing would be to introduce who I am. So here are 10 facts to get you started:
1.      My name is Lydia Mary Bales (nee Heather)
2.      I love Jesus
3.      I am married to the wonderful Kev (nearly 2 years)
4.      I am 23
5.      I love to read and get through a copious amount of books a month!
6.      I really, really love Giraffes
7.      I am chatty, confident and all in all a general bubbly character
8.      My spelling and grammar can be a bit questionable so I apologise in advance
9.      I am embarking on a career change and I am soon to start a new job training to be a librarian in a Secondary School.
10.    I am also starting a distance learning Masters course in Information and Library studies.
  I think that’s it for now. Hopefully I will be back soon with my first official blog post!


  1. Yay - I love blogs! I'm glad you've started one. Look forward to hearing more updates. The librarian training sounds exciting - how long is the course?

  2. Hey Lydia- looking forward to watching this grow :) xx

  3. Thank you guys! The course is 2 years long by distance learning Rachel. I am really excited to start it in September. Hope you, Josh and baby Maynard are doing well. I am a huge fan of your blog!
    Naomi and Malcolm I love watching your photos appear it looks like your both doing really well. Hopefully I will be able to keep up with doing this!
