200th Post celebrations

Posted on

Another milestone reached in my blogging ventures so I thought I would mark the occasion. When I reached my 100th post I decided to share my 10 favourite posts since I started blogging so I thought I would do something similar and share my 10 favourite posts since my 100th. Many of the posts have a lovely collection of photo’s to go with them.

  1. Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium I’m currently looking forward to the opening of this cafe which looks like it’s set for the beginning of next year. It is very exciting and I’m sure once I get to go I will let you all know what it’s like. I’ve got a feeling that it’s going to be very popular.
  2. Consuelo Parra – Digital Art An artist that I discovered this year. Check out some of the pictures that I have included in this post.
  3. Ronan Keating Live This seems like ages ago, I can’t believe it was at the beginning of the year. How time flies!
  4. The Struggle One of the few Poems that I wrote this year along with ‘Defeated’ and ‘Don’t Judge Me’ which I’ve also included in this list. I’m hoping to compile some more poems for 2014 because I’m not that bad at writing them.
  5. Egg-Citing Art Lots of giant egg designs in Covent garden. There are so many photos.
  6. Defeated
  7. Don’t Judge Me 
  8. A Damp Day in Camden Town This is the only time I visited Camden this year. I hope to go again next year. It’s so hard to find the time to fit everything in. There are lots of places that I had hoped to visit this year but didn’t.
  9. Carrie Hope Fletcher Photos of Carrie performing at this years ‘West End Live’. She has become one of my favourite YouTubers.
  10. Garden Wildlife It’s surprising what you can find in your own back garden. See what you can find.

Here Comes the Sun!

Although I was wishing that I didn’t have to go to work this morning, there remained a certain spring in my step as I glanced out of the window while getting ready. That Monday morning feeling after a fab weekend was just made better by the sunshine. As I walked to work I noticed how beautiful the blossom on the trees looked against the bright blue sky. It was also nice to walk home from work in the daylight… it seemed forever ago that I could do that. So I just wanted to say welcome back sun 🙂

So I had a pretty awesome weekend. It began with a spot of holiday shopping which is no where complete as yet but I’m glad I made a start. A spur of the moment trip to the cinema on Saturday evening with my 13 year old niece presented us with ‘The Hunger Games’ which pleasantly surprised me as I wasn’t really expecting much from this film. I haven’t read the book but people who have tell me that its so much better than the film. I don’t doubt this for a second but as it takes me so long to get through a book I have no intention in reading it. Some people were disappointed because the film was aimed at pre-teens which I expected anyway as my niece has been going on about it for months. I couldn’t help thinking that the whole concept of the film was just a little bit brutal for young people to digest but I was happy that it wasn’t too graphic as I didn’t fancy explaining to my sister why her daughter was having nightmares. All in all I liked the weirdness of it but I wouldn’t say that it’s better than ‘Harry Potter’ as some media have been saying.

I had a lazy Sunday morning catching up with ‘Britain’s got Talent’ leaving myself just half an hour to get dressed and slap on some make-up before running out of the door to catch a train to Camden town where I met my mate Mandy for food, drinks at ‘The Worlds End’ and onto Koko to see Lostprophets perform. It wasn’t a proper gig, they were filming for an album chart show and people who had bought tickets to see them in May had been invited along for free to be part of it. To be honest I wasn’t expecting them to sing as many songs as they did… about eight from what I recall! One being their new single ‘Bring ‘Em Down’ and one of my favourites ‘Rooftops’. Roll on May when I get to see their full show 🙂
