Lazy Blogger

This must have been the longest time I’ve been away from my blog since I started it. Yet again I don’t really have a valid excuse other than I was feeling lazy. Anyhow I’ve been up to all sorts and have lots to share with you. But seeing as I have quite a bit to say, I’m going to blog in two or three separate posts. So starting on a more personal note, I attended the eagerly awaited wedding of my brother at the beginning of September. Dean and Sarah married at a Tonbridge Wells registry office, moved onto a lovely scenic park for photos and finished at a nice country pub for the reception which was fully hired out. Entertainment consisted of a Frank Sinatra singer, magician and a good DJ with disco. I was in my element. The Rose was free-flowing and my requests for the DJ proved amusing. My niece became my dance partner for the evening but my moves on the other hand… well lets not go there shall we ha ha!

 

Also last month I went along to Hyde Park to meet Sam Clark for a fan gathering. For those who don’t know, Sam Clark used to play a character called Ringo in the Australian soap opera “Neighbours”. Since leaving the show he has been pursuing a music career. He bought his guitar along and played us a few acoustic songs which went down a treat.

I recently started to help my niece vlog and upload to YouTube. I also decided to make my own vlogging channel but after attempting my first vlog, I realised I just looked and sounded stupid, not to mention how ridiculous I felt talking to a camera in public. Jordan still continues to vlog on occasions and seems to appear a little more natural when doing it. We did capture some funny moments and I will continue to help her. You can check out her channel via this link http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCizjS1VyLEdw0az7oBVj_dg

Speaking of vlogging, I met Charles and Alli Trippy last weekend at the Contiki Road trip London meetup. It was an amazing experience for me. They were as lovely as they are in their vlogs. There were other YouTubers there but I only wanted to meet Charles and Alli and after 2 hours of waiting in the cold, it finally happened.

 

 

Here Comes the Sun!

Posted on

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 🙂
