Down in the dumps

Sir Terry Wogan
Sir Terry Wogan

Well I can’t lie, it’s been a month since I last posted about the tragic death of David Bowie and it just feels like there has been nothing but loss since then. I’m sure when you’re young, and by young I mean the better side of 3o, you don’t notice people dying so much. So far this year we have lost so many wonderful people including this lovely Irish gentleman. As I’ve got older, I’ve become more and more emotional, feeling every loss that little bit harder as my own mortality becomes more of a realization. I’m sorry for sounding so morbid but it feels like it’s been a difficult month and if I get my feelings written down and out of my system, then maybe I can perk up a bit and start to feel more like myself.

So first, before I try and write about something more cheerful, I must pay tribute to the legend that was  Sir Terry Wogan. The words legend and icon get used very readily these days but this man epitomized the words in their fullest sense. The Godfather of Radio 2 and a stalwart of BBC1. Many of us grew up watching Blankety Blank and Wogan his chat show that ran for many years and then obviously his sheer wit and dryness when presenting the Eurovision Song Contest, probably one of the reasons I’m such a fan of Eurovision!

Thank you Sir Terry for the memories, for the humour and for just being you x

So, on a brighter note, what have I been up to? Well work has been mega busy, we’ve done a new window display which look amazing even if I do say so myself. I held my New Years resolution to not buy any books in January and as of today ( 9th Feb ) I’m on book 7 of the year so far in terms of reading, not buying! So I’m trying to plow through a mixture of books I already own, plus a few that I have been lent and I think 7 in 6 weeks is pretty good going.

Tonight we are off to see Priscilla Queen of the Desert at the Theatre Royal, Norwich, so I think I’m going to end this post here and catch up with you another day and I’ll try to be in a better frame of mind.
