How we spent our Staycation

We had a Staycation last week, the weather was pretty good. Cloudy and not too warm on some of the days but the rain held off! 🙂 In my last post I wrote a list of things we planned to do with our week off, here’s what we decided on. Monday was mostly spent at home and at the gym. Ryan has a weekly training session on a Monday and I have an evening class so we planned around these and had pepperoni pizza for dinner.

DVD Organisation

I’m a DVD/Blu Ray collector. I like to own physical media over electronic copies of anything, including books and music. However, my growing collection has taken over the living room.

2012 – year review

I wanted to write this post before the end of 2012 but having a stomach bug but a damper on that idea, so I’m writing it now (this post was also going to be my goals for 2013 but the post got too long – that post will follow. 🙂 ) I’ve seen a few of my friends blogs review their past year categorised by month and decided to steal that idea. I’ve decided to focus on the main points that happened in each month. January I started off January by joining weight watchers. I didn’t set out to loose Read More…

Movies 2011

There are so many films coming out that I really want to see this year (and some in 2012 as well), anyone who knows me well knows that I love movies. I have an extensive DVD collection, I go to movie conventions/signing events, I collect movie/tv memorabilia… etc. Note:- This post will be rather long and rather image heavy Here are some of the movies I’m looking forward to seeing (and there UK release dates): Paul Paul is Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s new film, I’m a big fan of their movies – Two British comic-book geeks travel across the Read More…
