Something to look Forward to

Posted on

So it’s coming to the end of my first week back at work since getting back off holiday and I couldn’t be more excited for the weekend. It’s not over yet though! Tomorrow I have a two-hour trek to a conference to look forward to, (Can you detect a hint of sarcasm in that sentence?) but at least it gets me out of the work place for the day and they feed me 🙂

On a brighter note, West End Live have finally announced their 2012 line-up and schedule. Anyone that knows me, knows I love my musicals and this is an event I’ve been looking forward to since last years. For those of you who haven’t a clue what I am talking about, I shall explain. West End Live is an annual 2 day show-casing event where shows from the West End perform a selection of songs on a big stage in London’s Trafalgar Square for the general public. Whether they be old favourites or new and upcoming, this years performances come from every West End musical.

The Joys of Christmas Shopping

Posted on

You might detect a hint of sarcasm in that title, in fact you would be spot on. It’s one of the most mind numbing event’s that I have to endure each year. I don’t think I can get away with purchasing gift vouchers for a third year running. Yep… I’m going to have to put some effort into it this time which means surviving the crowds and stopping myself from hitting slow moving people in the back of the head (I wouldn’t really do something like that but I can visualise it). It almost turns into some sort of Zombie apocalypse but with humans.

surprisingly I don’t shop online so I have to do things the old fashioned way and when your in the middle of Primark trying to decide which jumper you should buy your mum; looking at the mile long queue at the same time, you start to wish Aliens would come and abduct you there and then. Each year I say how I’m going to start my Christmas shopping early but this year, as with all the others has been one big epic fail.

I sympathise with anyone who feels the same way about Christmas shopping but be strong and carry on… you can do it!
