Egg-citing Art

Posted on

Sorry for the poor title but I couldn’t resist. I didn’t venture out at all yesterday so I knew I had to make the most of my Sunday before I drag myself back to work tomorrow. I heard that the big eggs were back in London this year for the run up to Easter so I headed off to Covent Garden to have a look. There were so many great designs from different artists all laid out for ‘The Big Egg Hunt’.

Personally my favourite is Humpty Dumpty 🙂 believe it or not, there were so many more eggs than there is photo’s of them. I chose the ones that interested me the most to display on here, if I had taken a photo of each of them it would have taken a hell of a long time to upload 😛

Storm Trooper Love and Westlife’s last gig

Posted on

I can honestly say I’m not a happy bunny right now as I sit here in bed nursing a sore throat and runny nose… the dreaded cold is back! I was doing so well with staying in good health but the vitamin C tablets weren’t going to save me this time 😦 so I’m going to make the most out of this situation and spend my spare time blogging.

I’ve had an extremely busy weekend attending another spectacular West End Live which I’m currently writing a review about. I’m now trying to work out how to find the time (and money) to see all the shows I haven’t seen; especially ‘Sweeney Todd’ before it closes. The In-between sounds like another interesting one. Unfortunately I didn’t get much of a chance to look around all of the tents but I was happy to meet a not so friendly ‘Storm Trooper’. The geek in me came out as soon as I clapped eyes on him at the ‘Forbidden Planet’ tent along with ‘Darth Vader’ who was a bit caught up in holding a member of the public captive. hopefully next year I’ll find the time to explore a little more.

Saturday night came the event all Westlife fan’s were dreading… their last ever concert at Croke Park (Dublin). Myself and friends Hayley and Emma eagerly obtained tickets to watch the live screening of it at the Odeon cinema, Covent Garden. I must say it was the most bizarre cinema experience that I have ever been a part of. Never have I danced, sang, clapped and whooped at a screen before. The whole cinema was on their feet getting involved. I suppose it was the second best thing to being there in person. It was clear to see that the lads were very emotional throughout the concert but they pulled off another great show and made every Westlife fan proud. Now all we have to do is await news of their solo careers 🙂

Broomsticks and Cocktails

Posted on

Now I’ve recovered from the weekend I might as well tell you a bit about it. Well I can start off by saying that it was a good one. Saturday began with food and wine in the Spice of Life, Soho with my friends Celia, Mandy and her lovely mum Ann. We then moved onto somewhere we hadn’t been before, a bar/restaurant called Ruby Blue in Leicester square. It was happy hour so we got the cocktails in and sat on the balcony which overlooked Leicester square. They played an array of 80’s/90’s songs on the top floor and we amused ourselves by chatting to some random people which is a regular occurence for us. We moved onto the Phoenix artist club, a members bar where we enjoyed boogying along to Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang; songs that you don’t often hear on a standard night out. I love it in there and I love the people too. We must have been the last people to leave and after Ann had had a serious discussion with the cab driver putting the world to rights we finally rolled in at 4am… a sign of a good night out.

Sunday’s trip to the Warner Brothers Harry Potter studio tour was long-awaited. It was my chance to behave like a big kid and that I did. Myself and Mandy admired the sets and props, sampled butter beer and rode on a broomstick across London (virtually). It took us a good few hours to work ourselves around the different rooms. I could have spent a fortune in the gift shop but I limited my purchased items to a guide-book and Professor Snape’s wand 🙂

Later that evening we were fortunate enough to catch the Jersey Boys performance on stage in Covent Garden for the Olivier awards.

 

Happy Easter!

Just a quick post to wish everyone in Blogsville a very Happy Easter. Here’s another big egg I found while in Covent Garden the other day… it’s got to be my favourite so far! Reminds me a little of Tokidoki! Well done to the artist, it’s very cute 🙂
