Friends

The one where I married my best friend

The cast of Friends may have shut the door to Monica’s apartment for the last time 12 years ago but, after 10 series across 10 years (and constant reruns), this sitcom won’t be forgotten about any time soon. Now, Comedy Central’s FriendsFest is celebrating Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Ross, Joey and Chandler by providing the opportunity for fans to walk through, and take photos on, the iconic set. View Post

The sun was shining and we were heading to Ruscombe, where the streams are cool and the long grass tickles my tummy as I run through it chasing birds that I know I will never actually catch, as they swoop up and down, taunting me from the sky above my head.

Not only was I about to embark on my favourite part of the day, I was doing it with four of the humans I love the most. Life couldn’t really get much better!

 I have driven past Reading Prison countless times without really giving it a second thought. Little did I know that one day I would walk through those doors and into a cell.

I had never stepped foot into a prison before and I never expected I ever would… until that day.

What had she done? You are wondering. Drunk and disorderly? Possibly. Murder? Unlikely. Indecent exposure? Maybe.

In 2010, while doing work experience at my local paper, I accompanied one of the journalists to interview Jessica Brown Findlay ahead of her first role as Lady Sybil Crawley in Downton Abbey. At the time we knew little about this new period drama or the success it was set to have.

“I can show you the world, shining, shimmering splendid…”

I was definitely transported to a whole new world a couple of weeks ago when one of my best buddies George took me to see the West End’s brand new musical, Aladdin – and shining, shimmering and splendid are three words that pretty much sum it up.

I got the tickets way back in December as a Christmas present – when Aladdin was still on Broadway and I didn’t even know  that it had been made in to a musical. It was a lovely surprise because if I had known the producers of my all time favourite show, The Lion King, were bringing another Disney classic to the stage – I would have been first in the queue to see it.
