The Blogging Journey So Far – 6 Months Today


Today 6 months ago I made the decision to go log onto WordPress and set up a blog. After a long while mull it over I bit the bullet and went for it and shared the info with the Reality TV groups I’m in and they were very supportive.

Whilst I set up my page on 29th July 2017 I didn’t actually really get into doing posts for a couple of weeks and since then I post at least once a week. I have no set Schedule mainly because I work Full and Part Time so it can be when I get the time. I get really pleased with every like, comment and follow mainly because I understand that my posts are niche and TV on the different platforms is not for everyone.

So how have I been doing? Well I’m just enjoying the experience more than the stats but this is me so far:

It’s nice to see the growth in the 6 months and amazes me when I get those Wordpress notifications to let me know you are all interacting.

Where do I see me going? I have no idea I’m just enjoying writing about what I love sharing my Sunday Updates and interacting on Twitter with all you lovely people.

Thank you for taking the time to read and I look forward to your continued support as I continue on this blogging journey!


January Blues 😞


Every January I have always got a little sad, always leaving and coming home in the dark, never want to really leave the house. I would hibernate for the whole of winter if I could, I’m very much a Sun ☀️ Girl 😍

For a number of years now I have taken advantage of my parents renting an apartment in Playa Las Americas, Tenerife and got cheap flights. It’s nice to go see them for sure especially as recent years it’s gotten a longer stay for them. For me it’s a bit of relaxation and sun ☀️ but more so the weather makes me a lot happy for my birthday 🎂 than the usually miserable weather in the UK 🇬🇧

So next Tuesday I will make my trip from Hull to East Midlands (which gives me anxiety no end as don’t like driving in the dark 5am start 😫) for the few days of warmth until I return on Saturday evening. It may only be a couple of days but I love the feel of that Sun and I can’t wait.

In preparation I have been trying to watch all the programs on my planner so I have room to record everything! Whilst the apartment has the standard UK Channels and some Sky Channels and my Dad will watch most things with me ( I did get him into the Real Housewives after all!) my Mum is different, she is very set in her ways with her shows and I have to endure watching Emmerdale and Coronation Street. 📺

I have had my hair chopped as seen above getting rid of some of my long thick locks which is needed as it is so nice and warm. Today I’m hoping to have the boarding passes printed and at the weekend pack my case. I’m always very last minute with this, probably because I can always steal my Mum’s stuff even though she is petite we do take the same size thankfully. Plus the bonus of them being there for 3 months is that toiletries etc are already there so that is also 1 less think to think about.💁‍♀️

So next week if I’m a bit MIA from Twitter and the blog it’s because I’m sunning myself and enjoying beer!

Thanks for reading and Happy Viewing 📺❤️💋


Fangirling Moments 📺❤️💋

I’m a huge Twitter fan and couldn’t think of another platform that allows me to interact more with my TV 📺 obsessions 😍 we follow all our faves on the platform and whilst it’s not always a genuine account those with that infamous blue tick are verified as true and correct.

Imagine my excitement this last week that I have had some true fangirling moments starting with my tweet about Ransom (see post here: Ransom is Coming for Season 2) not only did my tweet get a great response but one of the stars of the show liked, retweeted and followed me. How fantastic I was over the moon 🌛and it gives you such a boost when you get interactions like this. 🤗

My 2nd exciting fangirl moment was relating to another show that I have written about, The Eleven which aired last year on Crime + Investigation channel, see that post here Crime + Investigation – New Show The Eleven   a key person involved in the show Lise Olsen, retweeted my tweet commending the show. 👏🏻 It truly is an eye opener if you get a chance to watch.

Lastly I have wrote about Silent Witness and my excitement of it being back (Silent Witness is back) and have to applaud Emilia Fox and Liz Carr on their interactions with fans. They have totally made some true fangirling moments for Katie and I this week, check out Katie’s blog here Life Withh KT Kinnes.

Have you had some fan girl moments on Twitter or any other platform I would love to know what? How did it make you feel? I know I was totally boosted but they likes, retweets and comments it’s just a fantastic feeling 😊

Hope you keep on checking my blog and here’s to more Twitter fangirling moments, Happy Viewing All 📺❤️💋



How do I watch great British Shows outside of UK? 📺❤️💋


When I started my blog last year I only ever thought of a UK audience, understandable really as I’m based in East Yorkshire, UK. However I do know that our great British Shows have a huge audience outside of the UK so how do they get there fix?

Well there is some great streaming services that they can use just ask my friend Pami in Cali! She is currently abandoning all housework to binge watch some great shows on Britbox and Acorn TV.

Between these 2 streaming services they can watch Coronation Street, EastEnders along with Silent Witness and Vera there is such a variety between these 2 services. Starting from $4.99 per month you can get your fix very easily and newer British Shows seem to be added relatively quickly.

So if you follow my Sunday Update and like the sound of the new BBC & ITV dramas you can be sure that US peeps will find them on 1 of these 2 services. I’d love to know if any of the US followers have used either service? Drop me a comment below.

Happy Viewing 📺❤️💋

Christmas Tag – Getting nearer to the festivities 🎄⛄️

Recently I’ve received a tag into a Christmas Tag by Hilesh over at https://sightswithhsite.wordpress.com

Now if you follow my blog you will know I’m not a really Christmassy person but it would be rude of me not to join in!


I don’t really have a favourite Christmas movie, not something that I watch every year that is. I do however love to record the movies on Christmas24, Channel 5 and other Sky channels to watch over the weekend and Christmas. 📺❤️💋


Maybe a couple of sprinkles but never a full on White Christmas. I have had a White Thanksgiving though. I love to go to New York 1st time was for New Year and it snowed on New Years Day. Since then I have been 3 times for Thanksgiving and I recall 1 was definitely snow as we didn’t know if we would be flying home. Not that it would have been a bad thing to be stuck in NY!! ⛄️❄️☃️


I’ve been in my own home for 6 years it’s just me and the pooch, Tinky, my beautiful Staffy cross Jack Russell and we spend the day snuggled in blankets watching TV and eating what we want. I love it and generally go to my parents on Boxing Day joined by my brother, sister-in-law and niece and nephew.



As a huge Mariah Carey fan since my teens it has to be All I Want for Christmas it’s a classic and I just love Mariah.


Nope! Not even on Christmas Day most are usually already at my parents and any I have been given including any Secret Santa’s I’ve done go with me to open Boxing Day.


I don’t really have any traditions like most other than no tree, no decorations and staying home on my own with the pooch on Christmas Day. I refuse to go anywhere now as when I lived with parents I was the designated driver and whilst everyone enjoyed a drink and fun I really didn’t enjoy myself. So now I have my own house I do what I want.


I wouldn’t say I have a favourite I just eat the same over the holiday period as I would any other day or week but as I am not a fan of Christmas dinner I usually have Southern Fried Chicken or Ribs for my Christmas dinner! 🍗🍖


I like giving as I know I’m a difficult person to buy for! I have usually bought that things I want/need myself.


Probably as a child I got presents at that age I really thought were the best but nothing really springs to mind.


Well as per the early question about a White Christmas New York is my dream place to go I love how magical it is even for someone that really isn’t into Christmas I well keep going back as much as I can.



Fail miserably which is why my Mum wraps them all and yes that includes her own, Just to clarify my Mum is as awkward to buy for as I am so she usually gets her present, pays for it and then tells me what I’ve bought her and how much I owe. Usually this is done without my knowledge but it is very hard to find her something.


Again like best present nothing really springs to mind.


Finding all of my brother and mine’s presents hidden on my parents wardrobe!


Time off work!! That is if I have any Annual Leave left which I usually don’t. As I am not a huge fan of Christmas I have been known to work it and could possibly be doing again this year. I work full and part time and my part time place of work is open 24 hours 365 days a year so who knows I could work again this year.

So I hope you enjoyed my answers in this fab Christmas tag huge thanks to Hilesh of https://sightswithhsite.wordpress.com

I’m sure a lot of you have already been nominated so just get involved and let me know when you’ve done it so I can check out you answers.

Have a great Christmas Everyone! ☃️🎄






I admit it I’m not a Christmas 🎄 fan??

So whilst everyone is posting about their excitement for Christmas 🎄 gift 🎁 guides and traditions I feel I need to admit I’m not a big fan of Christmas 🎄 😮

There is no particular reason I’ve never had a bad experience that haunts me I just see it as another month and another day. I also see it more a day for the kiddies and as I’m single with my pooch, Tinky we just chill out all day with blankets and junk food (I’m not a fan of Christmas dinner either!)

I do like seeing all the lights and decorations and went to my 1st Christmas Market in Harrogate last month. I love buying unique gifts for family and friends. 🎁I love watching all the Christmas movies on Channel 4, 5 and Christmas24. 🎥I just don’t get excited by it. 🤷‍♀️

No tree or decorations 🎄are put up and no cards will come from me. I’ve been in my own home 6 1/2 years and I stay home with the dog and we eat and do what we want all day and then I go to my parents on Boxing Day to see the family and torture everyone with me not opening presents all day long. 🎁 My Dad also does this and it drives them crazy 😝

So call me strange, weird or whatever else you can think of but that’s my normal and I’m ok with that 👍🏻

Enjoy your Christmas whatever you do as I’m sure to enjoy mine. 😍


Admit it who was a Dawsons Creek Fan? 📺❤️💋

In my late teens early twenties I was obsessed with watching Dawsons Creek. I loved this show it was fabulous!


We followed their teen dramas and angst wondering if Dawson would finally get the girl he was a little unlucky in love! Personally from the beginning I always wanted Joey to get with Pacey but I think that was more my undeniable crush on Joshua Jackson 😍 Jen was not your girl next door like Joey she brought a different edge with her own dramas and wild child ways.

So the news from Channel 4 that they have added all 128 glorious hours to All4 gets a big thumbs up 👍🏻 from me 🤗 I could watch and watch over again.

If you’ve never watched the show do it regardless of age (I’m 38 now and still ❤️ these teen shows) if you’ve seen get on it and watch again. 📺

Click here for Dawsons Creek

Did you watch? Are you going to watch? I would love to know drop me a comment 📝

Happy Viewing 📺❤️💋


Are you addicted to Crime Shows as I am? 📺❤️💋

So there is lots of channels here in the UK that you can get your fix of True Crime stories, there is even a channel called True Crime. I have Sky on my main TV and a Freeview TV in my bedroom. I always find when I go to bed it helps to have the TV on and as it’s usually around 10pm I like to flick through the crime related programs to find something too watch, do you do that?

My 1st go to is CBS Reality they also have some great shows and lots of new have started recently that on occasion I have even gone to bed at 9pm just so I can watch. I love Medical Detectives, Killer Clergy, Scandal Made me Famous and Wives With Knives.

There is some crossover on these channels mainly Snapped seems to be across them but on my Freeview TV I can guarantee CBS Reality (Freeview Channel 66), YourTV (Freeview Channel 72), TruTV (Freeview Channel 68), True Crime (Freeview Channel 60) and Really Channel (Freeview Channel 17). Not all are exclusively Crime shows but all have some great True Crime/Detective shows to watch. Am truly enjoying Cold Justice Season 4 at the moment on YourTV, Double bill from 9pm watching Kelly Siegler and Team try to solve Cold Cases. 👮👮🏻‍♀️

Now if you are lucky enough to have pay-for TV the big daddy channel to watch is Crime & Investigation (CI) – Sky 553, Virgin 275, BT 380 and TalkTalk 328. This channel is packed to the rafters with all Crime related shows however as the channel name suggests the investigation part is amazing and we get a deeper look at some of the crimes/situations they investigate 🔎🔍

Take the recently aired OJ Guilty in Vegas, the show went into more details than things I’ve read plus we got to hear never before aired conversations from the time of the incident. I’ve talked about it previously and love it, Leah Remini’s Scientology:The Aftermath. This never fails to have my jaw drop 😮 in horror listening to peoples accounts. Plus this is were the shocking but can’t stop watching The Jail:60 Days In found it’s UK home. Luckily for Freeview only watchers the 1st 2 Seasons have also aired on Channel 4.

I’d love to know if you watch crime shows and what your favourites are? Drop me a comment and let’s have a conversation.
