This Weeks Shenanigans

Posted on

It’s been all go this past week. Work has been busy and there hasn’t been enough hours in the day to do everything I need to do before I go away. I’ve been spending a bit of time with my niece recently for various reasons, one or two being Dan Howell and Phil Lester. This is where I start from the beginning to avoid confusion. It all started about 5 or 6 years ago when I introduced her to my favourite YouTuber Cory Williams. I then made her aware of some of my other favourite YouTubers such as Katers17, Charles Trippy, ShayCarl and iJustine. Her curiosity got the better of her and she started looking for others… mainly the younger ones as she is only 14. Two of her favourite YouTubers are also BBC radio 1 presenters that have their own show on a Sunday evening. On two occasions I have had to take her to meet her heroes who have a huge teenage following so being a 32-year-old I felt a bit like the odd one out. Fortunately I don’t think anyone noticed so I grabbed a sneaky photo for myself.

Phil, me and DanTuesday night we went to see WWE Smackdown at London o2 arena. This was my first ever WWE live event. Excited wasn’t the word. I shouted so much I nearly lost my voice. It was a thoroughly entertaining night despite the fact that My favourite Wrestler ‘Sheamus’ lost to ‘the Big Show’. I also touched the arm of Roman Reigns (one part of ‘the Shield’) as he walked past me towards the ring, all was good until I realised I had a handful of grease so proceeded to wipe it on my niece haha! It was satisfying to watch ‘the Undertaker’ Beat ‘Dean Ambrose’ but man they are sore losers. After Dean tapped out all 3 of the Shield decided to beat the crap out of ‘the Undertaker’ who has been in WWE for longer than I can remember.

Anyway I’m now all set for my holiday around the Canary Islands with my friends Debbie and Heidi and will be taking my new ipad with me so I can blog when I’m away. Fingers crossed it works. We leave on Saturday 4th May. I don’t know what I’m going to do yet, whether I’m going to make a daily holiday diary or do it some other way. Stay tuned to find out 🙂

R.I.P Nathan Wills

Posted on

Some sad news hit the YouTube community yesterday when we heard about the death of Nathan Wills. My thoughts are with his family and friends and I hope you find some comfort knowing that he is now at peace. I didn’t know Nathan very well but I knew that he was a good person. I saw Nathan Last year during a YouTube meet-up for Katers17  and Cory Williams of SMP films. It was fantastic how Nathan took responsibility for the huge gathering of people who turned up at Trafalgar Square and he looked like he thoroughly enjoyed himself along with good friend and fellow Vlogger Sara Parker. They all helped to make that a day to remember for myself and my Niece and I’m grateful for that.

Nathan Had been suffering from depression and reportedly took his own life on Friday 27th July. A statement from Nathan’s father expressed how special Nathan was to the family. Fans have been leaving messages of condolence with Nathan’s friends Kate, Cory, Sara and others deeply affected by his death. He will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace Nathan.

A Look Back On My 2011

Posted on

As I took a short walk earlier I started to think about all the things that I have done this year and what a great year its been overall. The most memorable moments started with a trip to Dublin in March during St Patrick’s week. In that time we saw Boyzone at the Dublin O2 arena and went to Dublin zoo. There was never a dull moment, even back at the hotel while getting ready for nights out we would listen to music and have a glass or two of rose. The St Patrick’s day parade was crazy, I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many people attend such an event all at once. It certainly was an incredible experience.

I attended a few Boyzone Concerts this year, a couple of Westlife and one Take That which was an amazing birthday present from my brother and his fiancée. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a rock chick at heart but 90’s boy bands are my guilty pleasure.

This year has definitely been the year of the musical for me, I’ve clocked up an impressive 42 shows which include:

Jersey Boys x25

Ghost x3

Betty Blue Eyes x1

Legally Blonde x6

Lend me a Tenor x1

Grease x1

Mamma Mia x1

Rock of Ages x1

Priscilla x1

Wizard of Oz x1

I call it dedication… my parents call it a waste of money!

Another great moment was when I met my favourite YouTubers Katers17 and Cory Williams of SMP Films and Mean Kitty. They set up a fan meet up in Trafalgar Square, London back in September and caused quite a stir as they spent the whole day mingling with the crowd.

I’m hoping that 2012 will have lots more great things in store for me, I already have a few things in mind anyway. My new motto is to ‘live each day as if it’s you’re last’ – especially if this “end of the world” thing is true and we may not live to see 2013.
