…are a million to one he said.
So last night I went to watch Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds (the musical adaptation of H.G Wells novel) at the cinema with one of my friends. We wanted to go and see it live, but didn’t manage to get tickets. Might as well go for the next best thing!
That’s right. It’s back. Once again I have awoken to a fluffy white blanket covering my garden. It has snowed once again.
So imagine this. 6.30pm last Thursday night I see a tweet from IGN UK (@IGNUK) informing me that they are having a live interview with the one and only Sylvester McCoy at 3pm, Friday 8th March. But here’s the catch, they want US to get involved! So I grabbed my email and shot off a quick email to Tom Butler (@TomButler) with 3 questions that I would want to ask Mr McCoy. Sure enough, 3 hours later I receive an exciting response. They want ME to join in with the interview on Google+!
Some of you may be thinking “Glastonbury is 3 months away. V Festival isn’t until August?!” However, if like me, you are what society calls a ‘book-aholic’, then you will surely know that I, of course, am talking about World Book Day!
So, it’s all over again! It’s amazing just how much preparation goes in to this one day and then in the space of 24 hours it’s gone. Doesn’t make it any less fun though!
It’s now days after the big day and we’re still in the Christmassy mood. Christmas isn’t about the gifts or the food. It’s about the company. It’s about the atmosphere. The time shared with friends and family, playing games and being merry.
So…it has finally arrived! London 2012 has landed and has been absolutely brilliant! Unfortunately all good things must come to an end and the Olympics will be off our screens tomorrow…boo 🙁 But here I shall highlight my top moments of the Olympics so far! (In no particular order).
1934. Fred Perry defeats Jack Crawford to become the first man to win the Men’s Singles Final at the Wimbledon Championship.
1938. Henry “Bunny” Austin won his place in the Men’s Singles Final. Lost to Don Budge.
2012. Andy Murray beats Jo Wilfried-Tsonga to become the first Brit in 74 years to reach the Men’s Singles Final.
Can he do it? I think so. Bring on Sunday.

So last week kicked off the start of my summer holidays. 4 glorious months off! Of course in that time I will need to find a job to fund next years University fees but other than that I have had quite a busy first week.
Hey everyone! Long time no speak 🙂 from what I can see it has been….a month since my last post. Not bad considering previous records! So first off I would like to say a big thank you to ANYONE who reads this, you guys are why I keep going!
There have been a few updates to my life at the moment that I’m really excited about that I would love to share with you all….
It’s that time again where I have to get up off my behind and do something worthwhile for a good cause. You guessed it, the Sport Relief Mile is back!
Two years ago me and a friend took part in a local event and ran a mile all in aid of Sport Relief. This year I have decided to step it up a notch. On Sunday 25th March 2012 I will be running 3 miles around Chester Racecourse, using all of my effort to raise money for such a worthy cause.
So over the next month and a bit, I will use this trusty blog that I have (but hardly use) to track my training in preparation for the big day. I have already started my training in little bits but will be
For all of my family and friend I will be coming around with a sponsor sheet, but for those who don’t know me that closely I would greatly appreciate it if you could make a contribution, no matter how small. Remember, this is not to help me, but to help all those out there who are living in such dire situations and who gravely need our help.

Thank you so much for your time, I hope you enjoy my journey and I’ll speak to you soon.
