Fat Friday: Week 42

Hello there everybody, how is everyone on this particularly bland Saturday? I was going to post last night but time got away from me and before I knew it I was too tired to try and stay awake to write a full post. Oh well. It’s been an odd week to write about too. It started (Ish, I mean Friday was last week’s post but The Killers need mentioning) and a gig, followed by injuries, illness, birthday preparations, and on top of that a fat week. We can’t have everything in life.

Fat Friday: Week 10

Right now, as I am typing this, there is a layer of snow (albeit a very thin pathetic layer) on my car. (It’s similar to the level of snow I have discovered I can have as a feature on my blog). We rarely get snow in Liverpool. And even more rarely get snow in December. This is momentous, thank you Storm Caroline. I’m also getting ready for Christmas; I have started wrapping, and I am thinking about Christmas cards, and my advent calendars are being enjoyed. I just love this time of year! I am also looking forward to a weekend away in London with Emma, a weekend that we have been planning since January 16th.

26th Birthday Unwrapped

As we enter December, and approach the festive period, I decided it was probably a good time to look back and thank everyone for the awesome set of presents that I got this year for my birthday. I had a wonderful birthday this year. I celebrated early by seeing The Killers as a treat to myself, and then spent time with friends and family celebrating in IKEA, The Tavern, and at home. I was very lucky this year as well, I received an incredible set of presents from some very generous people, so, a big thank you to everyone who made me feel old in the best possible way!

The Killers | Wonderful Wonderful

When you go and see something, and you want to remember it, there is nothing better than taking a picture, capturing it on video, and writing down how it made you feel. So, for posterity sake, I’ve decided to review The Killer’s performance at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on 9th November 2017. I say the show, it’s about the whole event, it’s probably once of the longest posts I have ever written, and it shows just how excited, happy, and blown away by the whole thing I actually was!

Let me start with a little about me and my music tastes. I listen to a lot of genres, more rock, Disney, and Musicals than anything else, and a lot of my favourite songs and artists are more renowned for periods before I was born. I don’t go to gigs often (the lasts ones I went to were in 2012ish) and I won’t just go and see anyone. The last 3 artists I went to see were Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, and Paul McCartney, and I had pretty much decided that I would only go and see ‘mega artists’, of which I wouldn’t have classed the Killers as before now. So, when we were deciding to go and see them I was (quietly and internally) wondering if it would be worth it and whether they would be anything more than a couple of good songs from a decade ago.

Guys, there are moments in your life when you look back and think ‘wow, that was a brilliant night, very few nights will top that’, and this, well, this was most definitely one of them.

Fat Friday: Week 6 @ The Killers

Good evening, ladies and gentleman! The weekend is upon us, and for me, my birthday weekend is here. I have four days off work with very little planned, and I am looking forward to it immensely! To be fair the celebrations really started last night at The Killers: Wonderful, Wonderful Tour but it’s nice to have a few days off to do not very much.

I fell from the wagon, hard last week, and if I am honest, I haven’t truly got back on this week. I haven’t exercised once (which I am very annoyed at myself about) and I haven’t eaten that well in comparison to earlier weeks in this diet, so it could have been better, but at least it wasn’t as bad as last week. Onwards and upwards.
