Spring Comic Con ’23 – Meeting Joseph Quinn ๐Ÿฆ‡

Hi Guys ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ

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 beโ€ฆ but also, not as stressful as I thought at the same timeโ€ฆ

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 ๐Ÿคฃ (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… ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฃ 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 ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

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,

World Book Day 2023 ๐Ÿ“š

Hi guys! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ

Today is World Book Day. I mean everyday is Book Day for me haha.

As I work in a Primary School Setting I do love this Day simply for sharing stories and excitement around books.

Plus, it’s good fun to make a costume and dress up. My favourite part is reading to the children throughout the day though.


What could you do this World Book Day?

Get crafty and make a bookmark for you and or the kids.

Just enjoy a bit of quiet reading time with a new book or a favourite of yours…

Read to the kids! This is my favourite part of world book day at work โค๏ธ๐Ÿ“š

Try something new? A new type of book, a new genre. I have recently been enjoying the Heartstopper Graphic Novels which is not a book format that I usually read.

Read your favourite book โ™ก

Unfortunately I won’t have time today but, going to a local bookshop and treating yourself to a new book would also be an awesome way to spend it too. Especially if the kids have their book token too!


This year I have reused my Stick Man costume as I put alot of effort into making this last year so I thought I would get one more year out of it!


Whatever you do, I hope you have been able to enjoy a book and share that joy with somebody…theres nothing better โ™ก

What did you do for World Book Day?

What costume did you wear?

Until Next Time,

Halloween Fun ๐ŸŽƒ

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 ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

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,

Five things I try to do:

Take time out for yourself, buy yourself a coffee, go for a nice walk, read a chapter of your book.

Don’t just say yes all of the time – sometimes its ok to say, no I actually don’t want/agree with that.

Take the time to indulge in your hobbies.

Even if someone annoys you – take a deep breath & kill them with kindness.

When you are feeling down and being unkind to yourself, think about how you would feel if someone treated your loved ones like that – it makes you sad doesn’t it?! – so don’t treat yourself like that.

&

if all else fails, talk to someone, anyone. You are not alone.

Stay.

๐ŸŒธ Books: April Throwback ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ“šโ˜€๏ธ

Hi guys ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป


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…

๐ŸŒธ

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?’

๐ŸŒธ

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 ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป)


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!

๐Ÿ“š Happy Reading ๐Ÿ“š

Until Next Time,

Happy Mothers Day 2021 ๐Ÿ’

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 ๐Ÿ˜ฃ 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!

Harry Potter Geek Gear Haul โšก

Hi guys ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป

So, late last year I got an awesome glass cabinet for all of my Harry Potter Merch!

If you’ve been around here before (or you know me) you’ll know that I’m a massive Harry Potter fan.. โšก

So this is very exciting!! Any Potterheads on here!?!

I will be doing a post on here, of my HP Cabinet once it’s as I want it, so keep your eyes peeled for that ๐Ÿ‘€

Let’s get into the haul…

There was a sale on Geek Gear and I just couldn’t resist buying a few new bits that I didn’t have.

Mini Skele-Gro Bottle ๐Ÿ’€
Umbridge Cat Plate ๐Ÿ’
Yule Ball Invite ๐Ÿฐ
Neville’s Remembrall ๐ŸŒŸ
Hogwarts Crest Print โค๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™

I love that the items came packed in (what I assume is intentional) Weasley Wizard Wheezes coloured packaging ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

I can’t wait to add these to the cabinet.

The print is going up in our room, with our other ones.

And I’m going to keep my eyes peeled for more cool HP merch, because now I have a cabinet I can never have too much haha ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ


Have you guys got any cool HP Merch recommendations?

Or personal favourite pieces?

Until Next Time,

So, you may or may not know that I love Lush.

I have done a few hauls over here on my blog before and I usually do one at this time of year because of the Jan sales… and this year was no exception, which is surprising as its such a strange time.

What Lush did this year was that they sent out a list of what products were on sale and their sale price (50% off ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป) and you rang through your order, paid online and collected in store, socially distanced.

It worked really well and it meant we could still get some bargin goodies.

Me and my twin sister sarah always grab some Lush bargains in the January sales so we were delighted that we still could (and even more so now that we are again in another lockdown! What else is there to do but have a bath when you are bored!?!)


Let’s see what I picked up in the sale…

Shoot for the stars
Golden Wonder
Snow Fairy Bath Bomb & Snow Fairy Bubblebar
Snow fairy bath bomb
Buttervear
Jurassic Spark gift box
A robot and a dinosaur bath bomb!

I was super happy with my purchases! A few of these I have tried before, but I hadn’t tried anything from the Jurassic Spark Box so that’s exciting.

What are your LUSH faves?

Until Next Time,

Roseanne ๐Ÿ™‚
