JOINING AAODS COMMITTEE

It’s no secret that theatre and amateur dramatics have played a huge role in my life and are one of my biggest passions. I spent every year from age 8 to age 18 in a local theatre society and since moving back to Abergavenny after uni, it has been something I have wanted to get back involved with. Last year as I eased into my life as a graduate, I decided to just participate in Pantomime whilst I found my bearings but missed the experience of putting on musicals greatly. That is why when the opportunity arose to join the AAODS committee I jumped at the chance to be a part of this society again.

DAD’S 50TH BIRTHDAY BASH

This weekend was a nice change and rare glimpse of normality as we celebrated my Dad’s 50th birthday! Technically, his birthday isn’t until Tuesday but we decided to throw a little family gathering on Sunday to celebrate early.

A WEEKEND IN WORCESTER

I have been so quiet on this blog lately – I feel like lockdown sucked away my motivation for most things and writing blogs would mean I would have to address the fact that our trip to Florida was cancelled and lots of other things have been going wrong. However, I spent the weekend with some of my closest friends and the absence of the blog was noted so what better way to kick start regular blogging than with documenting this weekend!

ONE DOWN, ONE TO GO

Hello again. I hope lockdown is treating you all well – I am slowly getting over my lockdown blues and am determined to contribute to this blog more regularly again so, despite life being a bit shit, I’m not missing an important part of my life on here. So, yesterday I received my final grade for my first year of the MSc in Clinical Psychology I am completing at the University of South Wales. In my January recap blog, I shared my progress from the first semester and it feels like I have been waiting forever to finally know how I did in semester 2 and overall for my first year.

READING RECPAP: WHAT I READ IN APRIL & MAY

Hello again. Hope lockdown life is treating everyone as well as it can. I know I haven’t been blogging much recently but honestly the current climate has just been getting me down and I’ve just buried my head in work and study for the past two months. However, one positive thing to come out of isolation is that I’ve rekindled my love of reading, so I thought I would share what I’ve been reading over the past two months with some mini book reviews. Continue reading “READING RECPAP: WHAT I READ IN APRIL & MAY”

LEADING LADIES I WOUD LOVE TO PLAY

Hello again. I know it’s been forever since I’ve blogged but honestly the global crisis we find ourselves in with Corona has been taken its toll and I’ve had zero motivation for anything. However, I’m trying to get out of my unproductive slump by focusing on all the things I have time for now that I didn’t before. I’ve been doing one of those ’30 day song challenges’ (don’t moan, I genuinely love finding out about people’s music taste etc) and one of them is a Broadway/West End themed one. Today’s theme is ‘a song from your dream role’ and seems as I couldn’t pick just one, I thought I would write a post all about my dream theatre roles in hopes they may one day come true!

DISNEY DINING PLAN PROS

As I’m writing this it is officially just 176 days until our trip to Florida and we are beyond excited! As I mentioned in my first post about our trip, we are on the Disney Dining Plan for the duration of our stay and this week we were able to book all of the sit down meals we wanted whilst we are away. This blog is going to be jam packed (and super long) sharing all the details of the dining plan and what we were able to book.  Continue reading “DISNEY DINING PLAN PROS”

LIFE UPDATE: JANUARY RECAP

It still feels so weird that we are in 2020! I don’t know about you, but it always takes me a while to get used to the new year date and am forever writing the wrong year down. Having said that, I am so glad that 2019 is over and the first month of 2020 has been very kind to me. As lots happened, I thought I would pop everything into a little life update post. This will probably be a lengthy one – don’t say I didn’t warn you. Continue reading “LIFE UPDATE: JANUARY RECAP”
