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 – 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!

Journal – January 2007

July 2021 Introduction:

Here we go with another year from my old journal entries. These early weeks were mainly focused on arranging trips away in the UK and abroad in the months ahead. But I also met up with some friends in Exeter, as I was doing regularly, we had a bit more work done on the house, and there were other bits and pieces like TV shows, news stories, etc that I decided to mention as always. So I hope you enjoy! Continue reading “Journal – January 2007”

April 2021 Introduction:

Welcome to another bumper set of entries from my old journal. This was a very busy month, as I had 3 trips away – attending a Mac training course in Manchester, staying with a friend in Exeter to play at a quiz night, and spending a week in Bournemouth with a couple of mates. And at home I was continuing to make good use of our new broadband connection, while the new series of Doctor Who was starting on TV. So there’s a lot to mention this time, I hope you enjoy it!
