My 2012 Highlights

Posted on

2012 has been yet another great year for me overall and I’m extremely grateful for that. I have had great fun with many good friends along the way. I have managed to do a little travelling with Spain and Barcelona being my main holiday this year which included lots of great excursions. Disneyland Paris was somewhere I’ve always wanted to go and it certainly made me feel like a kid again… everyone needs a little magic in their lives. My long weekend to Devon was a welcomed break from the norm and left me feeling refreshed.

I attended three fantastic conventions with this year being my first experience of conventions too. Bitten 3 weekend, the Entertainment Media show and the London Film and Comic con all had some brilliant guests. Other highlights included seeing Michael McIntyre at the o2, The Harry Potter studio tour and the amazing annual West End Live which I will no doubt be at again next year.

Obviously my brother’s wedding has to be one of the biggest highlights of this year. It was a lovely occasion and one that I will remember for a long time to come. Meeting the coolest couple on YouTube Charles and Ali Trippy at the Contiki meetup in London with my niece was exciting and I hope to meet more of the YouTubers that I watch next year. Seeing one of my favourite bands Evanescence was long-awaited and I’m pleased to say that I have actually finally seen them live.

I tried my hand at poetry and really enjoyed it so I plan to submit more poetry into any online magazines that will accept them and see where I get. I completely failed on my other blogs for reviews and art but I’ve decided to just add everything I do to this blog in the future. Oh, and that book I bought back in January is still unfinished… what am I like!

Lazy Blogger

Posted on

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.

 

 

Waffle Shmaffle

Posted on

I was going to wait until I had something more interesting to blog about but I was getting bored with not blogging so I shall do what I do best and just waffle a bit. So far the past couple of weeks have been all work and no play! work has been busy but I’ve managed to keep myself amused in-between. I’ve been concentrating on finding accessories to go with my gorgeous dress that I bought for my brothers wedding in September, I just need to get a white bolero, a bag and some suitable jewelery which is proving to be somewhat of a tedious task.

I have finally finished heroes season 2 and about to move onto the final season of Smallville. I also treated myself to the box set of anime series, Chobits which I can’t wait to get stuck into. The art of anime has always fascinated me but I have never got around to actually admiring a motion picture of it so I’m going to look up some top anime series/films to work my way through.

I never got a response from PortAventura about the complaint I made about the treatment of their horses during a show so I’m now contemplating my next move. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. It saddens me to think that these shows are still going ahead with the poor horses suffering.

One of my favourite bands are coming to the UK in November and this time I have tickets to see them. I have loved Evanescence for years but never seen them play live. You can’t imagine how excited I am. But I have so much planned before then and I’m going to see Blink 182 on Thursday with Mandy which I’m sure will be totally epic.

Anyway, waffle over… I’m sure I’ll have something more interesting to write bout soon 😛
