Friday five favourite: Comedians

30 10 2015

I love a bit of comedy, who doesn’t?! I’ll nearly always pick something light to watch over something heavy. I’d say my list of favourite comedians is quite mixed – some very mainstream, some much more obscure that you may well not have heard of (unless I’ve talked your ear off about them already!) Maybe you’ll find something new that you like here today! In most cases I’ve just picked one clip per comedian, but if you like it, go on Youtube to find more! Most of these clips are fairly random samples. Here we go, and as always, these are in no particular order:

Dave Gorman – I couldn’t decide which clip I liked more so you get 2 as a bonus!

Milton Jones

Michael McIntyre

Dara O’Briain

Adam Hills

I also really enjoy Jay Foreman who is a comedy musician, so I’ve decided that instead of including him in here, I’ll do my Friday Five Favourite Jay Foreman songs soon 🙂





Friday five favourite: Crisps!

17 05 2013

I go through phases with crisps. I won’t eat them for years even months, purely because they’re not something I think of to buy, but when I have them they’re pretty good! Here’s another top five… Happy Friday!

What are your favourite crisps?

Walkers Prawn Cocktail

Pringles Ridges Ready Salted

Walkers Sensations Gently Infused Lime and Thai Spices

Kettle Chips Lightly Salted

Vegetable Crisps





Friday Five Favourites: The works of Phoebe Buffay

30 03 2012

So today at work I had some priceless classics from Phoebe Buffay stuck in my head, so I thought this would be a fun topic for a Friday Five Favourites 🙂
Again, no particular order 🙂 (although the first 2 were the ones going round my head today!)

A song about grandparents

A song about barnyard animals

The shower song

The holiday song (including the earlier versions)

And of course the classic that made her famous – with an ending I’ve never seen before!

What’s your favourite Phoebe song?!





Five Favourite Flowers

23 03 2012

I quite enjoyed my last post finding my five favourite Disney songs, so thought maybe I’d do it with flowers! It’s spring, flowers are coming into bloom all over the place and looking lovely – it seems appropriate 🙂
Again, no particular order, but here’s some of my favourite flowers!

Daffodils
Once we get to spring you can get bunches so cheaply in the supermarket I tend to keep some on the go at all times – brightens up the house and lifts my mood out of winter a bit! This is one from when I was doing this at uni

Daisies
Specifically these bigger ones, I think this was taken on holiday in Jersey

Gerberas
Like colourful daisies! This was my friend Becky’s wedding bouquet – my bridesmaids bouquet can be seen in the background 🙂

Lilies
My housemate, Arianne, has some for her birthday and they’re totally beautiful, and the house smells amazing!

Tulips
Sadly not my photo, and I couldn’t find one to do real life tulips justice, these could possibly edge their way in as an actual favourite if they’re not careful!

Obvious question – what’s your favourite flower?!

I wonder if I could have enough ideas to do Five Favourite Friday post… gosh that’d be a challenge! Are there enough things out there for it to last? Would it be of any interest?





Favourite Disney Song?

21 03 2012

On Saturday I had a pretty late drive home with my friend Sabine, so we put on the Disney CD for a singalong to keep us chirpy! It made me wonder what my favourite Disney song might be…

I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t think it’s possible to have a favourite, so I’ve tried instead to put together my top five! For the sake of fairness and equality I’ve also tried to limit it to one song per film, and I don’t think there’s any way I could put them in a particular order! (No Disney Pixar songs here, we’re talking Classic Disney, which sadly excludes Toy Story! 😦 )

Here goes:

Part of your world – The Little Mermaid
Comes with memories of youth club evenings in Romsey Memorial Park, sat on the swings and belting this out with some friends!

I just can’t wait to be king – The Lion King
Although I could have chosen nearly any song from this film!

Friend like me – Aladdin

Some day my prince will come – Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
Surely this is the point of Disney?

The work song – Cinderella

That was actually really difficult – a lot of choice! Feels more like a random selection of 5 Disney songs than necessarily favourites!

Do you have favourite Disney songs? Are you able to pick an actual favourite?!
