Monday #251


Happy New Year, everyone! I took a longer than anticipated break over Christmas, but I am back now! I had intended to start again on the 31st but being in that strange limbo between Christmas and New Year I lost track of the days and completely forgot!

Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely time over the festive season and are not too dispirited if you are returning to work this week.

You may notice a few changes on the blog starting this week: I finally took the plunge and upgraded to a paid account with WordPress. The blog now has it’s own domain, worldofblyton.com which should be active soon, and there will be no more adverts! I now have access to more ‘themes’ to change how things look, so I will probably be fiddling around finding a new look as well.

December round up

The Famous Five covers through the years part 2

I’m going to include The Pole Star as a location, as it’s big enough to live in! The Pole Star is the cruise ship that the Caravan Family take on a trip to Portugal, Spain, Madeira, the Canary Islands and Morocco. Despite these all being interesting and exotic places to visit, the ship is a far more important part of the book – perhaps because it was based on the real-life ship the Stella Polaris which Enid Blyton herself travelled on in the 1930s!

 

In Puzzle for the Secret Seven, the Seven have to solve a strange mystery. They have already done what they can to help a gypsy woman whose caravan has burnt down, but then are faced with thefts of clothes from a scarecrow and a violin from an antiques shop.

    That’s too bad that you’ll have to change the look of your blog. I thought it’s perfect the way it is.

      I don’t have to change it, but I’ve had the same theme for years now (and the theme itself is 8 years old). I might not find anything I like better, but it doesn’t hurt to look! So far I’ve just changed the colour scheme slightly and the font.
