After MCM, Collectormania the next day (26th May) at MK Dons stadium came as a breath of fresh air. A lot less stressful, free entry and no queue to get in. There were some amazing costumes which I couldn’t pass by without getting photo’s with them. I had photo shoots with Craig Charles, Billie Piper and ex WWE female wrestler Amy ‘Lita’ Dumas. Loved this convention!

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.
Tuesday 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 🙂
I can’t believe how much I have spent this weekend but the fact that it wasn’t all spent on me made me feel slightly better. Yesterday I took my niece Jordan shopping for clothes as a Christmas present. I must have bought her a whole new wardrobe by the time we had finished. Today was meant to be relaxing but I realised while watching WWE Superstars this morning that tickets for Smackdown were on sale at the O2 so I decided to make the journey there to ensure Jordan and I got the best seats that were left available for April next year.
I have watched WWE on and off since I was 11 years old (22 years ago) and this will be the first time seeing it live. Back in the day my favourite wrestler used to be Shawn Michaels, I loved his tag team ‘the Rockers’ with Marty Jannetty. Years later I became a fan of ‘The Hardy Boys’ but now it’s all about ‘the great white’ himself… Sheamus.
My friend Farrah converted me into a WWE fan (then known as WWF) when I met her in secondary school and I have many happy memories of sleepovers at Farrah’s watching Wrestling. She was a huge fan of Bret hitman Hart and used to give me all her spare trading cards. Those were the days! back when all we had to worry about was ‘the Rockers’ splitting up 🙂
Between then and now there has been many amazing athletes come and go in the business with some tragically leaving us too soon such as Andre the giant, Davey Boy Smith, Randy Savage and Eddie Guerrero among just a few. I look forward to being a part of this long-awaited entertainment documenting it in my blog.
