Sarah Loves... Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds

Composer Jeff Wayne created the musical version of The War of the Worlds based on the H.G. Wells novel of the same name. There were no pictures, only a few select paintings that were in the accompanying booklet sold with the music, the imagery was left to the listener's imagination.

Nights in white satin

I've mentioned before that I love X Factor, and occasionally someone will cover a song that makes me want to hurl something at the TV (I always hope it will be a cushion rather than anything heavy!). On the odd occasion it might be a cover of a song that completely takes my breath away. The latter happened on Saturday night.

There could be snow ahead

Some of you may have already had a bit of snow or perhaps even a lot of snow. We had a light dusting yesterday morning but apparently we're in for a bit more show this weekend. I love snow - except when I need to get to work in it.

Man flu and Dan Carter

 Purple Dawn in Seberang Perak, Malaysia - How beautiful is this picture? I've just ordered it in canvas :-)

This blasted cold has in fact turned into MAN FLU! Urgh. Run away and save yourselves, this is just not pretty. I struggled into work on Tuesday only to go through the some what embarrassing task of being told by your boss "I think you should go home" and me standing there trying to explain "But I feel ok though" as I coughed, spluttered and sneezed into my tissue. So I went home.

The difference between friends and best friends

An email from my bestie yesterday :-) This will cheer you up, it certainly made me chuckle. Enjoy x x x

Sarah Loves... Channel 4's Misfits

I got absolutely hooked on Misfits as soon as I saw the trailer for Season One. The programme is about a group of young offenders who are in community service (check out those orange jumpsuits) and after an electrical storm they each get supernatural powers.

Time for The Ashes

The Ashes starts this week and I want to be able to stay up and watch it all but that's seriously gonna interrupt my sleeping pattern as coverage starts at 11pm here. I think my morning routine will involve meditation and then a cricket catch up! What a way to start the day :-)

Cookies and Top Gun

When I'm ill I'm a terrible patient, I hate looking after myself let alone when others try to do it. I'd been coming down with a cold at the beginning of the week and it's now a full blown cold *atchooooooooooo* and then I found out that I'm gonna need surgery on my knee. I have started having some pretty yucky treatments done on it already. I'll spare you the details.

Harry Potter is out tomorrow!

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows comes out tomorrow. I'm this excited *stretches arms out as far as I can*. So you see? Oh you can't. Oh well, imagine a kid on Christmas morning? Yes that's me. I'm THAT excited :-P

The Walking Dead

And before you ask "The Walking Dead" is not about what I look like in the mornings... no wait... maybe.

No actually "The Walking Dead" is an American TV series which is about the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse. I'm not exactly one for horror or scary stuff, my Dad still remarks on when we saw Scream 2 at the cinema and I kept jumping through it *sigh*.

Sarah Loves... to blog

I've been blogging now for well over a year and I've never once tired of it. I honestly love this blog. I love what I write, how it looks and I love that people actually take the time to read it.

Top 100 Book List

I've kinda nicked this idea from a new twitter follower I got last week, I absolutely love reading new blogs and this is the latest blog to be added to my blogroll Eema's Thoughts & Ramblings.

Thank you Solskjaer

So he's finally going, after months of speculation Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has signed as the new manager of Molde FK in Norway. He was my late Granny's favourite player and for me I guess this is why I've always loved Ole even more than I did already.

Sarah Loves... The Starbucks red cups

I blogged the other day about my Christmas countdown and then as quick as you know it another one happened. Starbucks red cups are in! I admit I very nearly squealed when I popped in on my lunch on Friday. So Christmas really is getting closer?

Bad sleeping habits

I've somehow got myself into a bad sleeping pattern and I'd blogged recently about being a good sleeper (that's karma). I wouldn't mind really but it's making me feel lethargic and I feel stressed about things that I shouldn't normally be concerned over.

Remember remember the 5th of November

I love fireworks. When they are on or around the 5th of November or are for a special event. I'm not keen on the firework noise that you hear on a random night in March for example.

Desert Island Discs Meme

 This photo is unrelated to the meme, I just liked it. M'kay?

I was tagged by Louise here to to do this Meme where you pick 8 pieces of music that you would like to have on a desert island, and a book and a luxury item.

Wear a butterfly tomorrow

Before you wonder the tattoo is not real but I admit I'm thinking about getting a real one still. Anyway the reason for the sudden butterfly tattoo is all for Rachel over at Mon Polkadot Cheri.

Sarah Loves... Fleetwood Mac

I've been going through some of my favourite music tracks for a blog later this week and came across Fleetwood Mac's song "Everywhere". I've been a big fan of Fleetwood Mac since I was a child, my Dad listened to them a lot.

Bloggy Book Club

Helen over at icklebabe.com started a book club for bloggers, the idea is simple a book is chosen each month and at the end you all "meet" and review the book. Of course the "meet" happens on the person's blog who chose the book for that month.
