Friends will always be the funny and love-able, easy-watching tv show that can never be replaced. Ten seasons, 256 episodes of funny moments, sticky situations, relationships, love, friendship, and story lines many could relate to, made it a huge hit with an incredible fan base. So big in fact, that Friendsfest has now sold out two years in a row! With Kim unable to go due to a wedding planned for the same weekend this year, I was lucky enough to get the chance to buy her tickets…and boy was it worth it. Friendsfest sees the set, including Joey and Chandlers flat, the iconic hallway, and Rachel and Monica’s place tour the UK. Along with this, there’s Central Perk, the famous yellow taxi, two other…

Thrill seekers. This one’s for you. My final birthday surprise for Alex. All he knew was to wear full length trousers or jeans, sleeves, trainers, maybe a coat in case he got cold, and to bring no bag.

Let’s start by getting the soppy bit out of the way as I know everyone hates to hear it 24/7, so here it is… Im pretty lucky to have met Alex, and have a BF who knows how to seriously cause the wow factor for birthday celebrations. Like really! Ok so on to the rest… We love a surprise. I knew absolutely nothing about what Alex had planned, apart from which evening to keep free. I think the anticipation makes birthday celebrations even better. Arriving at North Greenwich, as I’d been instructed only 40 minutes earlier, I managed to avoid any conversation or chatter about what was on at the O2 that night. Confused at the sight of my housemate and no boyfriend, I soon realised…
