The Big Sick is a fantastic film. Based on the true story of Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V Gordon it tells how they get together after she heckles him at a comedy show he is performing in. Continue reading “REVIEW: The Big Sick”
Having been to the cinema at the weekend, I thought I would share my thoughts on the two very different films that hubby and I saw. Continue reading “REVIEW: Despicable Me 3 & Baby Driver”
8th July 2016 – a day I will always remember, as it was my last day at work. I can’t quite believe it has been nearly a year since I was made redundant and I said goodbye to my friends and colleagues. Continue reading “Being made redundant – my story”
Dara & Ed’s Road to Mandalay – Dara O’Briain and Ed Byrne venture out on another road trip together – this time to Mandalay (having already travelled down the Pan-American Highway by car on Dara and Ed’s Great Big Adventure). We see what they get up to on their travels from Kuala Lumpur to Mandalay 3,500 miles away.

I thought I’d share with you the podcasts that I’m listening to at the moment.
They are, in no particular order:-
The Danny Baker Show – Danny Baker and Lou Pepper present this two hour extravaganza live on a Saturday morning (9am – 11am) on Radio 5 Live.

The person with the most obscure and/or funny story will share it on air. There is a guest which Danny will chat in-depth to and then there is the Sausage Sandwich Game. Ahh the Sausage Sandwich Game – a hilarious game in which two callers (playing for any team they support) score goals against each other by answering trivia questions about the celebrity that week, including whether said celebrity has red sauce, brown sauce or no sauce at all on their sausage sandwich. My description doesn’t do it justice – you really have to listen to the show to get the full effect. Continue reading “Podcasts I’ve been listening to”
