Review: Great Expectations at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley

On Tuesday 29th May, I went to see Great Expectations at the Churchill Thetare in Bromley. The play was a retelling of Dickens' classic, and starred Nichola McAuliffe.

Review: McKellen: Playing the Part and Q&A at BFI Southbank, London

On 27th May 2018, I was lucky enough to be able to go to a documentary screening of a new film about Ian McKellen. The documentary was about the life and career of Sir Ian McKellen, a performer I admire a lot, and the ticket also included a Q&A with McKellen, Graham Norton and Martin …

Writing Update #18: April Showers, April Pours

The beginning of April brought some big changes for me. This caused a lot of stress and subsequently a couple of minor health issues (werk high blood pressure).  After all that, Einstein also had some health issues, and so April seemed like a write off, writing wise.

Musings on Avengers: Infinity War (Spoiler Heavy)

I eventually got around to watching Avengers: Infinity War on Sunday, and I have some feelings about it. I know everything that could have been said about this film already has been, but I just wanted to get my thoughts down. Honestly, I was underwhelmed by it. This could be due to the fact that …

How Much For: A Spring Getaway to Edinburgh

Budget: £400. I'm hoping to do a few more trips this year so I was hoping to keep this trip as cheap as possible! Flights: £166. This was more than I had hoped to spend, although this was due to my travel dates, and the fact that I paid extra to check a bag. Accommodation: …
