Catfish and The Bottlemen

cgbm3

Last week I went to a gig, this used to be a fairly regular thing, but since having a small person it’s become more of a treat, and this one I was very excited about!

I’ve really liked Catfish and the Bottlemen for a few years now. I’ve seen them go from a small band to huge, they are mainstream. So when I saw they were playing in Brighton at The Brighton Centre (lots of bands I like don’t ever venture down here….too near London I guess) I jumped at the chance! And it was a good idea, they were amazing.

A very fancy night at 64 Degrees

I love watching Masterchef, I’ve not seen the final yet… so no spoilers! But it’s great, amateur chefs making the fanciest of things, half of which I think sound amazing and the other half I sit there and think no no and no.  I would be a useless judge, I don’t eat red meat, game, offal or mussels, oysters, clams etc and I always think the foams and puffs and emulsions are weird, they look pretty, but cant be anything filling. Oh and don’t get me started on squid ink…who discovered eating that and how can you want to eat something that’s black and basically used to scare off other animals!!! Seriously who sat there and thought wow that might be a good food flavouring?!?!

New Years Eve

Well it’s safe to say that the way in which I bought in 2016 and the way in which I bought in 2017 were very different.

New Years Eve last year I was obviously pregnant and so going out and drinking was a no and at the time, as I was also suffering badly with hip and pelvic problems I could barely walk, so dancing was also off the agenda… This year Jon and I decided to make up for it by going out and drinking and dancing. We started off at Taste of Sahara for a delicious North African feast and then went to our friends house to see in 2017. We danced until 3:30 in the morning to some epic tunes (including George Michael- apparently it had to be done) and it’s safe to say Jon kicked off January with one hell of a hangover (I don’t really get them so managed to avoid the headache)

What a Wicked Performance

IMG_0558

I went to go and see Wicked during the week, and it was brilliant, I would highly recommend it to anyone.

If you don’t know the play is about the Wicked Witch of the West, a sort of precursor to Wizard of Oz. It tells the story of how she became the reviled character and her relationship with Glinda (with a Gerrrr) the good witch. It starts where the Wizard of Oz leaves off, the people are celebrating the demise of Wicked Witch of the West. The good witch is delivering the news, when someone asks her a question…weren’t you once friends with her?

Walking on Cars – Review

IMG_1326

In my opinion Ireland has a colourful history when it comes to music, there are some brilliant Irish bands and some not so brilliant. The most obvious one, U2, well I am not their biggest fan, the whole last album being forced onto everyone’s iTunes made me hate them a little more, but you cannot deny they have some EPIC tunes (Sunday Bloody Sunday, With or without you etc. etc.) Then there’s Boyzone and Westlife, again not my cup of tea but they can’t be ignored. Then there are some ones I do like, Kodaline, Two Door Cinema Club, Snow Patrol, General Fiasco and occasionally I’m partial to The Script. Now there’s another band I can add to that list and that’s Walking on Cars.

Ladyboys of Bangkok

LBOB4

Last week I went to go and watch the Ladyboys of Bangkok (LBOB). I remember going to see them years ago when I was at university in Brighton, so a long long time ago! One of my overriding memories is coming out feeling a little inadequate; the men performing on stage were more ladylike than me and had better figures!!

The Play That Goes Wrong, but is really very right!!

IMG_0610

Last night I ventured back up to London to go and see a play, to be specific ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’

I has seen it advertised ages ago and when I saw a deal on Amazon thought why the hell not, so I bought tickets for January thinking it’d be something for my boyfriend and I to look forward to. I was right, even at the door there’s a joke to welcome you!
