September 2018 Favourites

Time for another monthly update, and it’s fair to say that September was very busy and productive, as well as throwing up one or two surprises, which in turn are paving the way for a very interesting October. There is of course a video to go with this post, and I hope you enjoy this little catch-up as usual!

Music Haul – November 2016

In October and November most years, in the run-up to Christmas, there are always a few new releases that I want to get. Most of the music I get now is downloaded, but occasionally I’ll buy a physical set for one reason or another.

So here’s the music I’ve bought over the past couple of months – by Madness, Status Quo, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Howard Goodall, Derek & The Dominos, The Who, The Rolling Stones, and a little known band called Cherry Suede. Yes, I’ve been treating myself a little bit – but then I haven’t bought this much music for a while. It’s all come along at once!

Journal – December 2007

It’s time to finish off yet another year of journal entries. So naturally this post includes mentions of Christmas, along with a variety of news stories that have caught my eye during the month. So I hope you enjoy!

Journal – August-September 2007

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, has been relatively uneventful, although there are plenty of news stories I’ve decided to mention. So I hope you find things to enjoy in here as usual!

Journal – November-December 2004

Here’s another instalment of entries from my journal, bringing us to the end of 2004. I’ve been doing a work experience placement at my local council, and I’ve continued to enjoy my music and DVD purchases as usual.

Unfortunately, however, I don’t have any entries for December as they were accidentally deleted! So I’ve just briefly mentioned the key points from the month, and added another top 100 list to make up for it. That anomaly aside, however, I hope you find these entries interesting!

Journal – August 2004

Welcome to my next instalment of journal posts. Unusually for summer, I’ve had rather a lot to write about this month, as I got my full list of university results while I was continuing my search for work, Dad fell ill and had to go to hospital (he was fine eventually so don’t panic), we had some work done on the house, the Athens Olympics took place, I celebrated my birthday, and I continued to enjoy more new music and DVD purchases. So this is probably my longest journal post so far, and I hope you enjoy it!

Journal – July 2004 (Graduation)

This latest batch of posts from my journal marks a significant moment in my life, as I’ve now graduated from university and have started looking for work. Plus there are the usual mentions of DVDs and music that I’ve continued to buy, and one or two other things that have caught my attention. So I hope you enjoy!

Journal – June 2003

Welcome to another instalment of posts from my journal, as we approach the halfway point in 2003. I’m getting ready for the summer here, by taking my final exams in my second year at uni, socialising with friends, buying various DVDs including particularly good ones by Queen and Led Zeppelin, and getting hooked on the latest Grand Theft Auto game. So I hope you enjoy!

Journal – January-March 2003

Welcome to my next instalment of journal entries. I’ve combined the first few months of the year here, as they haven’t been particularly eventful, so the entries are fairly short. I’ve continued to buy some nice things to keep myself entertained though, and I’ve got some more results for my university work, plus there are a couple of other notable events (one good, one not so good). So I hope you enjoy looking through it all!
