Pets – how an animal can change your life

Well hello. Been more than a while since I posted anything. I’m still here, no particular reason for the absence just other priorities, nothing of note to comment on or just a general lack of enthusiasm/motivation. However recently there’s been a significant change in my life and it’s given me a real boost and a good excuse to post something new. (more…)

New Year – Exciting times ahead

Another year starts. Welcome to 2016 and a Happy New Year to you all. I’ll start by admitting I’ve not done as much updating to this blog as I thought I would, mostly because it doesn’t have a particular theme, I’ve been busy and not had anything I’ve felt the need to really write about but lets start with a bit of a roundup.

Since my last post in October there have been multiple convention trips involving mad journeys just for the day to Cardiff and Brighton, which were actually two of the most fun days of the year (more…)

After tweeting that one show had become very slow and tedious, a friend quite rightly said “stop watching it then”. I’d got so far with it but really started to ask myself why I was still watching. Was it the investment in time I’d already made making me carry on just to see if it improved? (more…)

Wales Comic Con 2014 – Part 2

This is it folks, the final Convention of the year (for me anyway). Wales Comic Con which was held at Glyndwr University, Wrexham on November 30th.

This is a fairly new event to the scene although it started in 2008, which has been run in April for the last few years and built to the point where they wanted to try a second one in November and in my view what a success it appeared to be. (more…)
