February 2021 Favourites

Hello again, hope you’re all continuing to keep safe and healthy. Welcome to another of my regular recaps, for a month that marks 5 years since I started blogging! Quite how I’ve managed to sustain a blog for that length of time, attracting and retaining a considerable number of regular followers along the way, I don’t know. But it’s led to so many exciting opportunities and enabled me to meet so many wonderful people already, and who knows what the next 5 years will bring? So many thanks to everyone who has followed, liked, shared, commented, etc, it means a lot and persuades me to keep doing it! 🙂

February was relatively quiet compared to the madness of the months preceding it, so this is going to be a relatively short post and video. But there are still various bits and bobs to mention, including some great vaccine news, and the entertainment I’ve been enjoying. And nothing here is sponsored or gifted as usual (apart from the audiobook I mention, which was a Christmas gift from my friend Claire). So I hope you enjoy!

Christmas 2019 Favourites – Out & About

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, and have a wonderful and prosperous 2020 ahead. 🙂

December was good for me all in all, and I was happily occupied over Christmas as usual. So I’m splitting this month’s recap over 3 posts as there’s a lot to mention. I’ve also posted a video to go with them all.

So in this first post, I’m going to talk about my adventures out and about, including museum visits and Christmas displays. I didn’t go out a lot over Christmas and New Year itself, as I had a bad cold for much of it, so it was best to just relax and recharge. But in the lead up to Christmas I still went out quite a bit. And as always, I’ve not been sponsored or gifted by anybody in order to mention them here. So I hope you enjoy!

Journal – January-February 2008

September 2021 Introduction:

And so another year from my old journals gets underway. Well done and thank you if you’re still reading them all! In these first couple of months I had nice trips to socialise with friends in Exeter and bought some more DVDs, while on the downside I was struck down by the norovirus and we had issues with our phoneline. Plus I mentioned various news stories that caught my eye as usual. So I hope you enjoy!

Journal – October-November 2007

August 2021 Introduction:

Welcome to another set of old journal entries. October was fairly quiet, but I did meet a friend in Exeter, which was nice. Then I had a couple of nice trips away during November, visiting my Nan in London for her 100th birthday, and then a friend at Bournemouth University for his much younger birthday!

I took lots of photos while I was in London, a selection of which you’ll see below, along with an unusual photo of me from Bournemouth too. They were taken on my new Nokia 6300 phone, so the quality is rather inferior compared to modern phone cameras. But I hope you like them, and that you enjoy this latest selection of entries overall!

Journal – August-September 2007

August 2021 Introduction:

Here’s another set of entries from my personal journal, again covering a couple of relatively quiet months. I did a nice bit of socialising during August in particular, spending a weekend with a friend in Portsmouth, and then my birthday weekend with friends in Exeter. September meanwhile was relatively uneventful, although there were plenty of news stories I decided to mention. So I hope you find things to enjoy in here as usual.

Journal – April-May 2007

July 2021 Introduction:

Here we go with another batch of old journal entries. During these weeks I had a nice little break in Bournemouth, and a couple of trips to Exeter to meet the friends I was preparing to go to Spain with. And with that upcoming trip in mind, I’ve also included the first entry from May, so that my next post can be dedicated exclusively to my overseas adventure. So I hope you enjoy!
