Tasha Talks History: An introduction

Hello my lovelies!

How have you all been? It's been a long time. I've been busy doing all sorts! I do promise not to leave my blog for this long again though (unless I have a good reason). I have to say I've missed it.

Let me introduce you to this new section of my blog: Tasha Talks History. As you may or may not know I love anything to do with history, in particular the Tudors. I'll be doing posts on books I read, places I visit, and on historical figures. Now, I'm not a 'historian'. I have no further education achievement in history (like an A-level or degree etc), but if you think you can class someone who does research for a hobby, and has a sheer passion for history as a historian, then I will suppose I could be classed as one.

I remember when I first found out how much I loved history. I was in year 3 (that would make me 7/8 years old) and we were learning about ancient Egypt. I always remember enjoying my lessons and getting so stuck in with what we were learning about. However, I think the real passionate side came out when I moved in to year 4 (8/9 years old) and we started learning about the Tudors. I can still remember the lessons and the Tudor dress up day.

I know that my next post I have planned for Tasha Talks History, is on Hever Castle. I visited Hever in the summer with Aron, my Grandma and Darcie. I have lots of pictures to share with you, sadly none of the gardens though. The reason I don't have any of the gardens is because I picked the hottest day of the year to go! We have said we'll all go back, on a cooler day, and do the gardens then. They are too beautiful not to go back and have a stroll through. When we go back, I'll be sure to share the photos with you all.

If you have any suggestions of places you would like to see or posts for me to write, then do let me know in the comments.

Thank you for reading
