It’s been a busy few weeks and I haven’t had time to sit down and write! It feels strange to write about Christmas in the middle of January but in between concerts, cinema trips and dinners with friends, it was a great festive season! Apart from spending Christmas Day and Boxing Day with my close family and friends, here are my other highlights.
I hadn’t seen Miracle on 34th Street for YEARS! It was brilliant to get along to the Pop-up cinema to see the film at Redeemer Central in Belfast! What a lovely way to watch a film all about having faith… in a church! A few days later it was back to the cinema- this time to the Odyssey Cinemas to watch another Christmas classic, Love Actually.
One of my favourite bands is The Coronas. I’ve been to see them countless times, maybe 12 or 13?! (Stalker much?!) A few days before Christmas my friend Emma and I went to see them at a brilliant venue, The Ulster Hall. They were as good as ever!
I’m lucky that I’ve kept in contact with my old school friends from Lagan College. We always meet up when the girls are home from England and America, where they now live. A few days after Christmas three of us met up for lunch at Blue Chicago Grill in Dundonald. As if copious amounts of turkey wasn’t enough, I went for the Macho Nacho burger- literally nachos on top of a burger! Delicious!
There were lots of other outings, including Eileen’s 30th birthday at the Hudson Bar on Boxing Day, brunch at French Village in Belfast with my friends with whom I lived in Australia and Clara’s 30th birthday up in Cushendall. In fact, I didn’t stop (as always!) Back to porridge now….
