Films everyone should see?


Dave always finds it strange that I’ve not seen a few “classic” films:

  • Most of the star wars films
  • Most of the James Bond films
  • Pretty much any horror film!

And today on Facebook someone mentioned his girlfriend hadn’t seen Wayne’s World.

It got me thinking – what films are real “must sees” for me? And what about you? What is a must see film?

I think mine would be:

  • The Blade Trilogy
  • The Commitments
  • Elf
  • Dogma

So…. Over to you… Must see films, who knows, maybe you’ll convince me to add it to my 100….

Bus musings


I’m sat here on the bus into work, my soundtrack is some gorgeous Motown and for the first time in a while I’m not wrapped up in loads of layers.

I’m looking forward to a friend visiting for the weekend. She’s never been to Norfolk and we plan to share the wonder of Sheringham with her tomorrow. It’s our favourite spot on the coast and I can’t wait.

My dadis taking part in a challenge to create a photo every day for the whole of 2012 and he’s doing a great job. I’ve always thought he’s a good photographer, but as the last 2 months have gone on I’ve noticed his pictures are getting better and better.

He’s got a sidekick, in the form of Clarence, the clown. Clarence is a colourful character and Dad seems to be having great fun coming up with stories to tell. I’ve decided that Clarence should have his own hashtag and I’ve decided to make it my mission to get him trending! Maybe he should tweet too?!

I’ve got a few ideas of some interesting blog topics coming up, I must admit to really enjoying myself now I’m blogging more. Though, whether what I have to say is of any interest to anyone other than me? Who knows. Right now I’m just getting a lot out of writing it. I may even talk nicely to mr Dave and see if we can’t do a redesign!

I’m probably due a challenge update, but if I’m honest, right now, beyond cupcakes last weekend there isn’t much new to add – I’m getting behind on both books and films!

Photo number 1!



I thought I would kick off my challenge properly with a photo post, quite fitting as it is a picture of one of my amazing presents!

Dave got me this fab coffee machine, complete with milk steamer and it makes the most delicious lattes! Yum!

Turning 30! A challenge of sorts


Since Dave turned 30 last year I’ve found myself obsessing about it a bit, I turn 30 next January and it’s been playing on my mind. Now, for get me wrong, I’m not scared, or worried (yet!) I’m just very conscious of it!

So I decided to write a list. Of 30 things I want to achieve in the next year (did I mention it’s my birthday on 25th and I turn 29!?). I don’t want to spend the whole year focussing on the big 3 – 0 instead I want to achieve things in the last year of my 20s!

My list is not full of epic things. They are all relatively achievable. Stretching, but achievable. And unlike my 101 list I’m ready this time to do it. When I’m not travelling I’ll create a new page for it to live on and it means I’ll be blogging hopefully (in fact that is one of the challenges). So once again I’m back, and I’m looking forward to attempting these challenges.

What do you think? Do you have a bucket list or a list of things that you want o achieve? Do you have any advice for turning 30?
