Pizza Pittas

I make Pizza pittas when I’ve had a really big lunch, or a roast dinnerfor lunch and I’m hungry in the evening. I’m usually tired and hungry, so this is the easiest kind of snack for me to make quickly and it’s tasty.


Pack of 4 pittas

BBQ sauce (you can use tomato paste or ketchup as an alternative)

Cheese (i use grated cheddar but you can use any cheese)

Toppings (optional)







(Add any toppings you want to)

Preheat the oven at 180°C.

First you need to get your pitta bread. Then you need to put bbq sauce ontop of the pitta and your chosen toppings on top of the sauce. Then put the cheese ontop on the toppings.

Put the pittas in the oven for 5 minutes or until cheese has melted.

Alternatively you can put the toppings inside the pittas for a different kind of pizza pitta.

An open letter to the exam boards


I’m concerned. I’m concerned because young people taking your exams are killing themselves with stress and worry. I’m concerned because today my cousin sent me a video on snapchat in tears because she had tried her hardest and studied as hard as she could for her history mocks and had gotten one of the lowest scores in her class. She had done her best and had studied as hard as she could and she felt as if nothing she had done was good enough. She didn’t know what to do.

Mental health illnesses are rising in school children. Young people are developing anxiety and depression younger and younger and I don’t think your exams are helping. You think that the previous GCSEs were too easy but did you sit them? Did you spend months studying and pulling your hair out over something coupd make or breal your future. They are told that GCSEs are the most important things that they will take and that you won’t get a job or anything without them. That kind of pressure doesn’t help children learn. What about teaching them things they will need in the future. Learning about taxes or how to look after themselves or even self-love because young people are finding it harder to do these things and this society puts so much pressure on them and call them lazy all the time.

Please, think about the children who are taking these exams. Please don’t keep creating these exams without thinking about what’s going on in the childrens heads and the pressure they may be feeling.


A concerned cousin and Auntie.

My girl friends

My girl friends build me up. We are all strong independent women who are secure in ourselves and don’t break down other women. We don’t make each other feel insecure we support each other and make sure that we all feel loved and that we are great the way we are.

My friends and are very comfortable with each other. My friends have come to my house and changed into their pjs and I’ve been comfortable enough to change into my pjs. When driving back from our girly weekend my friend was comfortable enough to get comfy and take off her bra because it was too tight and I took off my shoes and sat cross legged. We are all comfortable enough to eat all kinds of junk food and not worry about what we eat or how we look.

How to write a book

First of all you need a really good idea for a book. It could be for a romantic book, or a fantasy book or for anything you want.

A book won’t write itself, it could take under 6 months to a couple of years. Everyone is different and writes at different speeds.

I look at writing prompts to help me think of different scenarios for the characters in my book which then helps me think of what my characters might do next in the current scene that I was writing.

Writing a book is hard, you get writers block or you suddenly get busy. Keep at it. Set yourself deadlines and goals to strive for and achieve.

Don’t feel down if you don’t get it done in 6 months or a year. Everything takes time.

Real Talk

I am a young women. I am described as skinny but I have rolls and areas of myself i’m not happy with. We all have areas of ourselves that we don’t like. I don’t like the fat on my hips or my stomach or my thighs.

However, I love myself. Rolls and everything else I am still me, my body is still mine. I have stretchmarks and scars but it shows my life and what I’ve been through.

I don’t want to have a daughter that grows up to hate herself and her body because our society tells them to.

You are perfect! No matter how big or small, how short or tall, what colour hair or eyes you have. You are unique and are the best you that you can be.

Wizard money in the real world

Wizard money

1 galleon (gold) = 17 sickles

1 galleon = 493 knuts (bronze)

1 sickle (silver)= 29 knuts

English money

1 pound = 100 pennies

American money

1 dollar = 100 cents

1 penny = 1 cent

Nickel = 5 cents

Dime = 10 cents

Quarter = 25 cents

Both English and American money are fairly similar in the sense that it is mainly in 1s, 5s and 10s. Wizard money doesn’t follow in the same pattern.

England follows the metric system now but before 1971 England followed the imperial system. That meant that money looked like the below.

1 pound = 20 Shillings

1 shilling = 12 pennies

5 shillings = 1 crown

1 penny = 2 half pennies

1 penny = 4 farthings (quarter pennies)

This system starts to look more like the wizard currency. This may mean that the wizarding world is still in their imperial system for money.

On the back of the two books J.K Rowling wrote for comic relief, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them’ and ‘Quidditch through the ages’ which was shown as £4.99 or 1 galleon, 11 sickles and $3.99 or 14 sickles, 3 knuts. This was in the original uk released books.

Wizard money to English money

1 galleon = £4.93

1 sickle = £0.29

1 knut = £0.01

Wizard money to American money

1 galleon = $6.64

1 sickle = $0.39

1 knut = $0.01

(Conversions from wizard money to American and English money came from here )

Wizarding money in America is called Dragot and Sprink but instead of confusing things I’ll stick with the English wizarding currency for this post.

English wizarding money seems to be a sort of spoof on the imperial English money system.
