This has been a fun week, because I got to spend time with some good friends who were visiting London for a few days, one of whom was celebrating their 30th birthday. They packed plenty in to their short break, having planned things out very well beforehand, and they really enjoyed themselves. I didn’t get to spend quite as much time with them as I was hoping to, but I did meet up with them on each of the 3 days they were here. So I thought I’d tell you about it, as we did a variety of fun things!
Well, what a way to start a new month, with snow all over the place! Winter has seemed very reluctant to let Spring take over, but hopefully things will warm up in the coming weeks now.
And the cold weather didn’t stopped February from being an eventful month. Following on from my January 2018 Favourites, it’s now time to look through what I’ve been enjoying in February. And even though it’s the shortest month, I seem to have packed quite a bit in! So I hope you enjoy this post and video for February.
After a very eventful and successful 2017, I’ve been looking forward to seeing what 2018 would bring. And this year I want to try and get into the habit of doing monthly favourites posts, so you can get a good overview of what I’ve been enjoying, both out and about and at home. That way I can cover little things that I wouldn’t otherwise mention, as well as the bigger stuff that I’ve written longer posts on, which I’ll link to here.
So this is the first post, for January. This month I’ve been mostly doing things indoors given the cold weather outside. So I’ve been going out to various museums, and have also been to the theatre, while at home I’ve been watching a couple of the DVD sets I bought last year, to catch up on those. And I’m also making an effort to start listening to more audiobooks this year, as I only did one in 2017, which was bad of me (although, to be fair, book-reading wasn’t top of my to-do list having just moved to a huge city!).
So I’ve been keeping myself entertained in various ways, and I hope you enjoy this post and video recap of the month!
With everything else going on in 2017, I never got around to posting about the new DVDs and Blu-rays that I purchased during the year. So in this post and video, I want to give a quick update on the newest titles in my collection. And then, during 2018, I want to try and get into the habit of doing a monthly favourites post, about things I’ve bought and seen in general.
So I hope you enjoy this update and that there are things in here you enjoy too. And if there’s other stuff you think I should check out, feel free to let me know!
Happy New Year everybody! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, and that 2018 is a joyful and prosperous year for you. 🙂
I’m very much looking forward to the year ahead after an eventful and successful 2017, which you can read about in my 2017 review post. I posted quite a bit over the holiday period in fact, including my entertainment favourites for the year, and a big Christmas Q&A about how I spend Christmas in general, with photos and video footage of me enjoying Christmas as a child. So do go back and check my recent posts if you were busy celebrating and missed them.
For this post I just wanted to quickly bring you up to date with how my Christmas went. I’ve also filmed a video to go with this, which has my general reflections on 2017 as well. If you’ve been following me on Instagram you’ll have seen some of the photos I posted over Christmas – and I’m going to try and make more use of Instagram this year if I can as well. So I hope you enjoy my little Christmas update, tying up the loose ends before I enjoy the year ahead!
As well as having adventures in London, I’ve also been enjoying lots of TV shows, radio programmes, podcasts, films and music this year. And yet I’ve only wrote about some of it. So I wanted to bring that side of things up to date. Then in 2018 I want to start doing monthly favourites posts, like other bloggers do.
I’ve also done a video on this topic as well, although this post will mention a few things that I forgot to mention in that clip too.
Be aware that this generally doesn’t include anything I watched over Christmas (with a couple of notable exceptions), as there’s going to be a separate post about my Christmas favourites from this year. I’ll also be doing a separate post listing the DVDs I’ve bought during the year, as I haven’t done an update on those for ages, so this post won’t mention those either.
So I hope you enjoy looking through this list of what I’ve enjoyed during 2017. Feel free to let me know your favourites too!
Following on from my post about being in the audience for Mock The Week on Tuesday night, I was also lucky enough to have a ticket for Channel 4’s The Last Leg on Friday night as well. Out of both the shows this week, this was the one I was looking forward to the most. So, as with Mock The Week, I wanted to tell you a bit about my experience there, without giving away too many TV secrets. Again, this is also discussed in my video about Being In A TV Audience.
