Collectormania Milton Keynes 21

This past weekend (17th-18th May) was the 21st Collectormania at Milton Keynes and the 6th that I’ve been to. I went along on the Saturday with my family. The main draw for me was to meet Billy Boyd (Pippin from Lord of the Rings) and some World Snooker Champions: Mark Selby, Neil Robertson and Shaun Murphy. The day for me, started at 5.30am! We got to Milton Keynes at around 8am and qieued for the doors to open at 9am. As there is no charge to get in to this convention, it’s always a busy one. Once inside, we located […]

Happy Birthday to me!

So, Wednesday (7th) was my birthday! I had the whole week off work and decided to do a little something each day to celebrate.

Geeky Birthday Weekend at Chevron 7.6 – UK Stargate Convention

Hey there! Things have been busy since my last post. I celebrated my birthday weekend at the Chevron 7.6 UK Stargate convention and we finally got a new computer after our last one suffered a fatal computer failure. I also purchased a new laptop so we have a back-up if any goes wrong in the future. Fingers crossed it doesn’t!🤞🤞 But I’m happy to have a back-up, just in case. It feels so good to be online and able to blog again; I’ve missed it.  I’ve been to a couple of comic conventions including the Spring Memorabilia show in March, […]
