Funny Facts

I wanted to do something different for this post, and as I always seem to remember random funny facts that I never I thought I would need, I thought I would share some to make you laugh, or at least find a little interesting. Here goes:

  1. Cherophopbia is a fear of fun.
  2. It is illegal in the UK to eat mince pies on Christmas Day.
  3. If you lift a kangaroos tail of the ground then it can’t hop.
  4. You can’t snore and dream at the same time.
  5. The Titanic was the first ship to send out the SOS distress signal.
  6. It is illegal to die in the British Houses of Parliament.
  7. Slugs have four noses.
  8. George W. Bush was once a cheer-leader.
  9. In the Lord of the Rings books, after Gandalf persuaded Bilbo to give the One Ring to Frodo, he spent 17 years researching the rings story before returning to Frodo.
  10. The national animal of Scotland is a unicorn.

I hope you enjoyed this little post. Have fun!




Thestrals Books Needs You!


From the beginning, I’ve wanted this to be a place where we can all share our favourite books and a few other random things with each other. So I am sending out an invitation to everyone who visits here to get involved.

If any of you have anything you would like to share, then please let me know. It can be a book, a movie, a place to visit, anything at all. Just get in touch. You can leave me a reply here with suggestions, or you can send me a copy of what you would like to be posted (use the contact details on the ‘Connect’ page).

It doesn’t matter if you don’t feel confident about how to write the post, because the most important thing is to share something you think is great with everyone else. So get writing!



YouTube Channel

As of today, I have a YouTube Channel. I will post lots of Harry Potter related videos that I’ve found or been sent from you guys. I will also post videos of Izzy, and other things that I thing you all will find interesting. The channel is called ‘Thestrals Books’, and I hope you guys like it. The first video will be of Izzy doing her Spider-Man impression, as she tries to climb out of her house to go for an adventure.
