    Standing At The Sky’s Edge Theatre Review

    Well, it’s the musical performance that everybody in Sheffield has been talking about. Standing at the Sky’s Edge, I have to talk about it, because it was absolutely phenomenal. For those of you who aren’t from the area, or those Sheffielders who have been living under a rock, Standing at the Sky’s Edge is a new musical, with music written by Pulp’s Richard Hawley, focussing on Park Hill flats. Park Hill, is a concrete giant which has overlooked the city centre since the late 1950’s and is steeped in local history.

    Being a Dementia Friend: Still Alice Review

    Today I want to talk about being a Dementia Friend. I recently went to the theatre to watch Still Alice* and become a Dementia Friend, so today I’m going to tell you all about it. If you follow me on instagram you might have seen my stories talking about the event, but if not let me enlighten you.

    A Month Of Sundays

    Sundays for me are a mixture of two things. They should either be extremely lazy days where you lay in bed binge watching Netflix and stuffing your face with food. Or they should be days to be out exploring new places, eating nice food or doing cool things with loved ones. So that’s why on this sunny bank holiday I thought I’d share how I spent my previous 4 Sundays. So here goes… Sunday 1 The First Sunday of May was a scorcher, myself and Josh spent the day sunbathing and chilling as it also happened to be a bank holiday. We headed to Clifton Park in the morning, where…
