It is a while since I have done a ‘Dear Friend’ post. They are the sort of posts I write when I find it difficult to put into words what I would like to say to you in person.
I am writing to two people today.
I am and always have been a social butterfly. I love spending time with lots of people but close friends are without a doubt the best! The kind of friend you could talk to about absolutely anything, you can stay up all night drinking, chatting, laughing and putting the world to rights. You know everything about each other and you would do anything to make the other happy.
Fact is, because I have been so hell-bent on this doing this challenge, most of the others on my 101in1001 list have been neglected. Blogging is the sole reason why I have, to date, completed less than half of my challenges. Oh well, I don’t care that much – I love it.
I can tell that you are confused. This blog that you are reading isn’t that great, I only post occasionally and in fits and starts, when I picked my challenges I did envision that Sammioneill was going to become huge and I was going to be the middle aged equivalent of Zoella. Hahahaha *kidding.
One of the reason I like karaoke is that generally you have to be in a good place and in a happy mood to sing. Singing, like dancing is a happy thing to do. I have held numerous Karaoke nights at my house over the years, first with SingStar on the PS2 and then progressing to linking YouTube and a couple of microphone up to the TV. The parties have always been fabulous fun with a lot of tipsy people.
But I had never been to a public Karaoke bar….
As I go to the theatre regularly I am usually juggling which train to catch and I grab a quick sandwich to eat on the train or if I am late, I eat on the way home. On the rare occasion I I do eat in London it is usually fast food on the hoof.
So when Official Theatre and Kettners asked me to sample a pre-theatre dining experience I was a little bemused not to mention delighted. A quick look at their menu on the Kettner’s website and I was sold – it looked DE-LI-CIOUS!
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.
We theatrebloggers are an mixed bag. We come in all shapes and sizes, some are experienced some are just starting out. But we have one thing in common and that is we are all passionate about the theatre.
When I first got the email inviting me to a Digital Press Night at Dirty Rotten Scoundrels I genuinely thought it was a wind up. Not only is this blog in it’s infancy but I always thought it would mainly be for my own amusement and didn’t think it would get much interest.
