Get a new hobby – #101in1001

To ‘Find a New Hobby‘ was on my 101 things in a 1001 days list because for the last ten years I had dedicated a lot of time tirelessly raising money for my children’s primary school and although I loved every minute of it, I felt it was time to do something for myself. I had found my 10 years at the school fulfilling, enjoyable and social and I desperately needed something to replace a huge hole in my life.

In The Beginning

Another blog that I have been working on is In The Beginning.

This all started when my Music teacher from middle school contacted me and asked if I still had a copy of the recording we made of a school musical we did in ahem…..1981.

The sad thing was, I did have a copy, but it must have got misplaced with quite a lot of prized belongings when we emigrated.

I can still remember quite a lot of the lyrics and my teacher can remember quite a lot of the music and so we thought we would enlist help from other Riverway pupils.

The site has had lots of views but unfortuntely not many other lyrics have been added yet. If you know of any pleeeease get in touch.

Running for Ronnie

Seven friends of mine have all signed up to run the Virgin London Marathon this year (2015). Six of them have got Charity places and will be raising money for a wonderful hospice in Crawley – St. Catherine’s.

2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,000 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

I have finally done it. My theatre website has gone live!  http://www.theatresoutheast.com

Those of you who visit this blog regularly will know that I generally like to share my ‘theatre love’ with anyone who will listen. I try and promote theatre and aim to get more people to seeing live entertainment, as in my opinion it is so much better than sitting at home.

All Change – A new site is on it’s way! THEATRE SOUTH EAST!

I would like to apologise if posting seems to be a tad erractic at the moment – I keep being asked when I am going to do another personal post as this site seems to have really been taken over by theatre posts now.

So if you are wondering how I am doing in my 101 in 1001 or what crazy things have been happening lately, you will have to wait a little longer – but hopefully not too long.

As well as managing my family, my work and countless other things, I have been spending my time developing a new theatre website.

I split my personal twitter page and my theatre twitter page a little while ago now as they were getting a bit confused. The same is happening with this blog.

So stand by – a bit split is on it’s way. This one will remain all about lil ol’ me  ‘Sammioneill’ and I am about to publish – Theatre South East, a new blog promoting theatre in London and the South East. Pretty well what I have been doing here but a bit more specialised and hopefully will look a bit smarter….. Do you want a quick peek?

Of course you do……

www.theatresoutheast.com – no, not quite ready – but getting there.

I have quite a lot finalised already but am struggling a bit with the final details so bear with me, it is alllllmost ready. Quite proud with what I have learnt up until now 🙂

Thanks to Jo Digby Designs I have a new logo. I will miss my Little Miss Magic logo, but I think you’ll agree, she has seen her day.

Little Miss Magic

I thought it was a good likeness. – well maybe not 🙂

 

 

 

Theatre South East will hopefully be exactly what the same suggests, I hope to provide information about theatre productions in London and the South East, if I could stretch myself any further I would.

I hope to get local theatres fully on board and provide listings, news, gossip, interviews, features, reviews, professional, amateur, you name it. I will also provide my thoughts on West End theatre where I can, because currently I seem to be spending an awful lot of time there (It’s a hard life).

I would be interested to hear what YOU would find useful. Ideas would be gratefully recieved. Please send me a comment in the box provided below.

I will continue to write my Saturday Morning Column for http://www.EastGrinsteadOnline.com and write reviews and articles for

LondonTheatre1
Downstage Centre
and Everything-Theatre

busy busy bee I am.

Please contact me in you have any questions / suggestions.

Thanks for listening, and please support the new site.
