Day 129 – Karoke

I have been anti-karaoke for as long as I can remember. The idea of sitting around listening to drunk people sing doesn't scream "good time" to me, neither does the thought of me awkwardly singing in front of them – I have avoided being in this situation all of my life. Something changed this year… Continue reading Day 129 – Karoke

Day 109 – The Phantom of the Opera

That's right, I'm back at the theatre with the comfiest seats in town. Andrew Lloyd Webber is sharing one of his musicals every Friday to YouTube, available for the weekend only – this week it was The Phantom of the Opera. The love of musicals has always been strong in our family – my mum… Continue reading Day 109 – The Phantom of the Opera

Day 99 – Online art museums

During my interview with Ann at #365firstschallenge the other day, we briefly touched upon how easy it was to find new things to do during the times of social isolation. Every day there appears to be an abundance of new resources, recipes, tutorials, and opportunities available, and I'm actually finding it hard to fit it… Continue reading Day 99 – Online art museums

Day 97 – Theatre at home

Nothing will beat going to the theatre and seeing a live performance, but the National Theatre's live recordings are a close substitute. The National Theatre in London have been live-streaming a variety of productions to cinemas for years now – I remember going to see Danny Boyle's Frankenstein production in 2012. It's a fantastic way… Continue reading Day 97 – Theatre at home

Day 96 – Yin Yoga class

I've been doing Yin yoga on YouTube for the past few years, trying a few different videos, but always coming back to Yoga With Kassandra. She has a great series for beginners and is amongst one of the few yoga YouTubers who don't talk all through the quiet parts. This is very important in a… Continue reading Day 96 – Yin Yoga class

Day 92 – Qi Gong

I've been trying to keep moving as much as possible whilst being stuck indoors at the moment. I manage to run 3 times a week, and as I mentioned here, I've been doing a lot of online classes live-streamed by the local fitness centre. After increasing my running distance this week, I have a little… Continue reading Day 92 – Qi Gong

Day 89 – Understood chess

This has been on my list for some time and has been something my husband has been keen for me to learn. We picked up a 5-in-1 wooden board game set a few weeks ago, and a cold and cloudy Sunday afternoon seemed like the perfect time to break it out and become a chess… Continue reading Day 89 – Understood chess

Day 82 – Hosted my own quiz

I know we're living in really strange times at the moment, something none of us have really experienced before. I think one of the hardest things is feeling so distant from each other, but thankfully all my nearest and dearest are well connected, and I can contact them when I want. With that being said,… Continue reading Day 82 – Hosted my own quiz

Day 81 – Hip Hop dance class

This is something I've never done but always wanted to. I'm a hip hop fan and love a dance, so it seems like a perfect fit! I was looking for more ways to stay active whilst social distancing and came upon a Hip Hop workout class. Ok, so not a true Hip Hop class, but… Continue reading Day 81 – Hip Hop dance class
