Spring Comic Con ’23 – Meeting Joseph Quinn ðŸ¦‡

Hi Guys 👋🏼

So, something super fun happened last weekend! March 4th.

Me and my Husband went to our very first comic con. Now, don’t get me wrong, it was at times as stressful as I thought it would be… but also, not as stressful as I thought at the same time…

Let me explain – so I don’t think the where’s and when’s of your photo experiences were massively well explained. I was never explicitly told a time but thankfully someone I know worked it out for me and we arrived with plenty of time, without prior con knowledge I have no idea how you’d ever work it out… but,

Once we were there the staff were super helpful and it was relatively easy to find/ask where you needed to be and when for any experiences and photos you may have booked, so that made it alot less stressful! Everyone else who was also visiting were helpful too which was lovely.

So, anyway – our first comic con was really fun and it was exactly how I imagined it to be. There were so many people in so many costumes, epic costumes. Seriously impressive stuff. It was just a vast room filled with people geeking out, having fun and being unapologetically themselves and maybe slightly irrationally excited about celebrities 🤣 (my self included) I walked past Sylvester McCoy for christ sake!!

And best of all… I MET JOSEPH QUINN.

It was actually surprisingly nervewracking just before the photo slot but it all went well, mostly… I had to have my photo done twice as the camera flash left a glare on the photo because of my glasses… so I had to go again… I had to stand and have everyone look at me as I had a photo taken, again… which I hate… but, it meant I got to say ‘hi’ and put my arm around Joseph Quinn twice so… 🤷🏼‍♀️🤣 I’d take that as a win tbh

Plus – I thought it was really nice that they let me go again and made sure everyone got a nice photo.

I mean, I literally said ‘hi’ x2 and ‘bye’ and ‘thanks’ to him but in those 10 seconds he seemed very lovely (as I had heard he would be) his very enthusiastic ‘HI’ and smile as you walked over was very sweet. I kind of wish I had plucked up the courage to say a bit more to him but you don’t really have much time anyway… I would probably buy a autograph next time if he goes to any nearby cons again.


The two things that struck me the most were how totally normal he looks (and I mean like in a non celebrity way, he looked great but I think it’s very easy to forget that celebs are just people and they don’t like float around on clouds, with gold sparkles around them or whatever ) and how friggin tall he is in real life- jesus.


I enjoyed having a walk around and looking at the stalls and costumes. A highlight being when I rounded a corner and saw Ghostface casually browsing a t shirt stand 🤣🤣

I got me and my sister a cool Stranger Things Poster each and then we headed over to the mainstage and queued for Joseph’s talk. It was the final event of the day and it was so packed, I’m glad we started queueing when we did.

It was so surreal seeing the set up that I have watched so many times on tik tok of his previous con ‘talks’ but it was really cool to listen to one and see him chatting in real life. To be honest, if you’ve seen one you’ve probably seen most as he gets asked alot of the same questions… but there were some really funny moments that made it worth it… and some adorable moments from a few little kids too.


All in all I really enjoyed my first comic con experience and I would definitely go to one again and be more confident and less panicked now that I know how it all works.

Have you ever been to a comic con?

Who have you met?

Until Next Time,

Halloween Fun 🎃

I Love Autumn & Halloween… here’s what we got up to !

We went out for the day, to a nearby farm!

It was brilliant.

There was SO much to do.. we made wands, got sorted into our Hogwarts house, had a spooky trailer ride, explored the spooky maze, picked and decorated pumpkins, pettee guinea pigs & rabbits, looked at loads of other animals and had a bug trailer ride.

A great family day out, themed really well and with lots of fun to be had.

We had a fun little family Halloween party at my sisters house.s

She set up some fun activities for them, we also had a buffet of party food, spooky tunes and Halloween pass the parcel.


Me & Tim always do a few Halloween traditions at home – these include carving a pumpkin (we’ve done one every year that we’ve been together) and I make us ‘Spooky Sausages’ which are meant to look like mummies.

I also like to watch horror films but Tim isn’t too keen on those so thats usually just me haha

Some of my favourites are Scream, Halloween, Hocus Pocus, Nightmare before Christmas and Nightmare on Elm St.


Our local cinema was showing some Halloween classics on Halloween.

Me and my Twin sister Sarah always watch horror films together so we went along and watched the original Scream! I can’t believe its the 25th Anniversay 😱

Scream is my favourite ‘Scary Movie’ and it was cool to watch it on the big screen.


What did you get up to this Halloween?

Do you have any traditions??


Until Next Time,

My Favourite Podcasts

Hi Guys 👋🏻

I have really been enjoying podcasts over the last year. A Lockdown discovery. I enjoy listening to them before bed.

I have an eye op this week so I won’t be able to read for a bit 😫

So I know that these podcasts will be my saviour.

Here are some of my favourite ones.

10 & 5 ðŸ‘°ðŸ¼ðŸ’—🤵🏻

11.06.11

I thought I would do a little post to comemorate our anniversay.

I usually post a little something each year because, after all, our wedding is the reason I started this blog. I wanted to document the planning and experience of our wedding.

I can’t believe its been 5 years. It was a wonderful day.

The date is the same as our original anniversary as I really wanted to get married on our anniversary.

So, today also marks 10 years together and that is absolutely mad. How time flies.

Especially when you are having fun 💗

To my husband…

I wish I could put into words how wonderful you are, but my words would never do you justice.

From our 2011 trips to the Heathlands, Nights out, Uni Visits & Cinema dates to now, 2021 … having just come out of a year of doing none of those things because we are in the midst of a Pandemic (who’d have thought it aye)

Thanks for always making me laugh, for always taking care of me and for always dancing like a fool around the lounge with me.

Marrying you is one of the best choices I’ve ever made. You are my bestfriend.
10 years later and I still find myself thinking, Wow, soulmates really do exist.

the luckiest.


Until Next Time,

Mental Health Awareness week runs from 10th -16th May 2021.

Mental health is so important, ao much so that I probably can’t really articulate in this blog post, the extent to which it is.

We’ve all been affected by mental health in some way, whether its ourselves, someone we know, or someone we don’t, like a celebrity we might admire.

It’s a part of all of our lives and yet there is still so much stigma surrounding it, its still not discussed enough in the same way we would a physical illness. Its affects can be just as devastating as something physical… if not even more so, especially to come to terms with.

You are not alone.

Your feelings are valid.

And it is ok not to be ok.


A smile can hide a multitude of feelings, but sometimes even doing that can be too much, and thats ok too. Talk, to anyone, someone.

Talking about mental health doesn’t have to been seen as negative, its just being honest.

& the world needs more of that. Just think, it could help you and do many others.

Talk. Take control. Keep going. Take it one day at a time. Do something you enjoy. If its bad now, it hasn’t always been. Focus on that. It will pass.


& this, for anyone who needs it, from the brilliant author Matt Haig.

Stay.


Don’t suffer alone. It won’t always be an easy conversation but it will be so worth it.

🌸 Books: April Throwback ðŸŒ¸ðŸ“šâ˜€ï¸

Hi guys 👋🏻


Christmas, Spring/Summer are my favourite times of year to read and as I was enjoying my book this afternoon it got me thinking about this time last year…

April 2020 was a both a confusing and enlightening time for me (It sounds strange I know, stick with me)

Lockdown was fully in swing at this point, Pandemic – WHATTTT, very confusing! But, amongst the madness of Lockdown, for the first time in probably 11 years I had time… time to do the things I enjoyed, unapologetically, emphatically and with a new found appreciation for them.

And with this feeling and freedom in place I got such a heightened enjoyment from the novels I was reading. It of course helped that they were bloody brilliant books… so, lets take a walk down memory lane…

🌸

April. This seems to be a good month for me in terms of discovering new books, especially ones that turn into firm favourites, that I always recommend when someones asks me; ‘Do you know of any good books?’

🌸

In the midst of the OG Lockdown…

I read ‘The Silent Patient’ in a day I was so enraptured by it, gripped to the last page…

We also had another Heidi Swain release, which always makes a month amazing (& this sunny seaside stay is one of my faves of hers) ‘The Seaside Escape’

…and I found another firm fave and cosy number in ‘The Flat share’ which has lead me to many brilliant books by Beth O’Leary as a result.



Fast forward to today…. & I’m thoroughly enjoying ‘The Lido’ by Libby Page. Its a cosy, feel good book that restores your faith in community, friendships (unconventional & not) and yourself along the way.



I’m so invested in this story, its endearing characters and community that I know I’ll be sad when it ends and we aren’t spending our time together anymore (if you know, you know!)

I want to see how it all plays out but I don’t want to say goodbye.

You know you’ve got a good’un when thats the case.


I’m super looking forward to the end of the month as I have a few Preorders coming my way and I’m SO EXCITED!!

They are:
~A Taste of Home by Heidi Swain
~The Road Trip by Beth O’Leary
~Until Next Weekend by Rachel Marks

(& a new Sarah Morgan book at the end of May 🙌🏻🙌🏻)


All we need is for this sunshine to stay, Covid to be kept at bay and a nice cold drink to sip as we enjoy these brilliant books!

📚 Happy Reading 📚

Until Next Time,

Roseanne 🙂

Happy Mothers Day 2021 ðŸ’

I used to share snap shots of my life on her, things we had done to celebrate different occasions, fun days out, holidays, however, obviously this last year has been quite an unpresidented one.

I feel like I haven’t really shared much of what I have been doing because really we’ve all been doing the same haven’t we! Staying home, Locked down, on and off since Summer, working and just trying to stay safe.

But I thought to myself, why not share the celebrations we are still having, as wierd as they may seem in comparison to how it used to be, because it’s all we’ve got at the moment and we should still be grateful for what we can do during such a mad time.


Today is Mothers day and I have shared on here, for several years, our tradition of our Mothers Day, homemade afternoon tea.

This year was a very 2020/21 affair, via Skype, but it still involved Afternoon Tea so no complaints here.

We ordered the individual Afternoon Teas from a small local business (All Covid safe) and enjoyed them at our own homes via Skype.

They were delicious and it was nice to be able to continue the tradition, even if it was a little different to usual.

Most of our ‘Usuals’ seem a distant memory right now don’t they 😣 but, it’s also so important to embrace what we can do, communicate and spend time together however we can, whilst staying safe, because we can still stay in touch and stay connected, and we will all be back together properly one day.

It gets to everybody at some point, this wierd time we are a part of, but I’m so very conscious that there are people in such a worse situation than me, who have experienced some of the worst times during this pandemic.

If the worst part of this whole situation, for me is that I can only speak to people through a computer then I’ll be forever grateful. I know some people have it much worse.

It’s still ok to find it hard though and I hope you’ve had a little bit of light and joy come your way today!


• Happy Mothers Day Everyone •


Until Next Time,

Roseanne 🙂
