Queen Extravaganza

A couple of weeks before my birthday, I was in town with the younger two late on Saturday afternoon, when I saw an advert for the Queen Extravaganza – a Queen tribute band. After the Levellers, Queen are my favourite band. They were the soundtrack to my life from 13 to 18.

Lost again (MAD Blog Awards)

So you probably guessed from the lack of a very excited blogpost early on Saturday morning, not to mention endless photos of a trophy all over Twitter, Facebook and Instagram that I DIDN’T win the MAD Blog Award for best schooldays blog. To be honest, I was going to forget about it and not write anything at all, but then I thought that wasn’t really fair. Because I have a lot of people to thank – all my loyal readers...
