Taking two-day trips to see Matt are the only good thing about him being on tour, but so far my biggest trips to see him have been marred by my headaches. It’s very hard to enjoy shopping in Birmingham, or exploring in Edinburgh while it feels like your left eye is going to blow out of your head. With that said, our trip to Edinburgh was one of the most exciting trips we’ve had, and I caught the city-break bug from it, so I was hugely excited to go to Bristol. I’ve passed through Bristol dozens of times, but I’ve never been able to properly explore it – and with the weather being so good, it seemed like the perfect time to go! Armed with my headache tablets, I jumped on the train, and off I went! Continue reading
I once read that if you had to write a disclaimer on a blog, you shouldn’t be writing the blog because you know it’s wrong – but I’m starting with a disclaimer. Theatre friends, if you think this blog is about you, it isn’t. It’s about the jobs I kept secret, it’s about the jobs I did when I’d only ever lit school shows before, the jobs where I didn’t know any better. I doubt the people this blog is about will ever, ever read what I have to say.
The Steam Sale is nearly over, and I have bought nothing so far. I’m not making any money at the moment, so I’ve managed to talk myself out buying anything that isn’t essential but I don’t think it will be long before I cave in. I can’t resist pretty games, and I can’t resist a bargain and Steam have some real bargains!
People have different opinions on what counts as a bargain though, and I saw so many websites recommending new games that were still around £30 on sale. That might be a bargain in comparison, but for skint people like me, it’s far too much! I had a look through my Steam library, and picked out 5 games I love that I got for a real bargain price – less than £5. With just two days left of the sale, here’s 5 games I’d recommend you get from the Steam Sale, each for £5 or less!
One of my biggest fears in going to the doctor’s surgery. I’m not scared of doctors, I’m not scared of dentists, I’m not scared of hospitals, but I am scared of wasting their time. I’m scared they’ll say it’s all in my head, or there isn’t a problem, or I didn’t need to come and see them. Most of the time, I’ll stay away unless I’m really struggling – and my headaches have gotten to that point. Last year, my headaches were crippling, but they seemed to tone down after I got new glasses. I thought it was all sorted but, in February, they started coming back with a vengeance. Not being able to walk up a hill in Edinburgh due to a pounding headache was the final straw. I bit the bullet, and I made an appointment.
That’s a big deal for me!
