First time: going to the ballet

I’ve always been an admirer of Tchaikovsky ballets. Perhaps it’s due to my obsession with the barbie adaptations when I was young, or it’s merely because they’re just brilliant. However, I never actually went to see one of the performances. When I heard there was going to be a rendition of the Swan Lake in… Continue reading First time: going to the ballet

My favourite Christmas films

Happy Christmas everyone!! I hope you’re having a nice day. I’ve had to go to the emergency dentist for a small emergency (they have like 10 Christmas trees!!) but overall it’s been a nice day.

First time: going to the cinema alone

Popcorn, whispered conversations, red chairs, the sneaky quick light from a phone.. these are some of the things that I associate with going to the cinema.

What my 9 year old self wanted

I was walking around in a shop today, when I suddenly saw one of those fibre optic lamps. It took me right back to when I was 8 or 9 and wanted nothing more than one of those to stare at in my own little room. But it didn’t end there. Oh no. Let me… Continue reading What my 9 year old self wanted
