Here Is The News #7

Here is the News

Blogland Brilliance

 Elizabeth has just released a fab little eBook over at her Blognix site - 100 Blog Post Prompts and Ideas - full of tips for when you're a bit stuck!

Lauren passed her A Levels with flying colours and managed to get into Cardiff, yay!

Michelle looks like one darn sexy lady wearing her new lipstick - Jessica Rabbit would definitely be jealolus!

How about some Golden Snitch truffles at your next dinner party?

This week I've bought...

 Tickets to see David Mitchell (the comedian, not the novelist) in Bath in November.

Tickets to see a show by Living Spit Theatre Company based on the life of Elizabeth I. They're a fab company, although 'company' is a rather ambitious word for what is essentially two very funny men in drag!

(plus I've bought two lots of Travelodge rooms - one night in Taunton and three nights in Clapham - but that's not quite so interesting)

Find me at...

 Sturminster Newton Carnival in Dorset on Saturday night. It's the first in the season of South West England's illuminated carnivals and I'm judging the entries!

From the bank holiday weekend, I'll be at Great Dorset Steam Fair with Andrew's lorry, where I'll either be caked in mud or covered in dust, depending on the weather...

And if I wasn't there, I'd quite like to be in Bournemouth for the Air Festival. We see some of the planes flying over the steam fair site on their way to and from the festival and I bet the whole display would be fab to watch.

Interesting Info

You might have all seen this map by now but (even though it's juvenile), it's still funny!

The nominees for the Edinburgh Fringe Foster's Comedy Awards were announced today. I'm quite pleased to see several comedians we like on the list - Alex Horne, James Acaster, Romesh Ranganathan and Sara Pascoe.

Life Lessons

Andrea wrote this simply brilliant post all about the vital difference between introverts and shyness. I don't think I'm shy but I'm definitely not an extrovert so I think she's spot on!

What's new with you?


  1. Ooh I'm jealous you're seeing David Mitchell- he's so brilliant!! xxx

    1. I'm so looking forward to it! (we've even forfeited going to our own town's Carnival which for us, is a pretty big thing) :-) xxx

  2. Ooh, thank you for the mention :)

    And yes I'm jealous about the David Mitchell thing too, I love him x
