Hello everyone! 🙂
It’s New Year’s Eve today! As we come to the end of the year, it’s time to look back and reflect on how great 2015 has been. Here are some highlights on how my 2015 went and how happy I’ve been.
2015 started well for me, as I went to ‘Big Finish Day 6’ at the Copthorne Hotel in Slough in January. It was a great day as I met many of the Big Finish people including cast and crew on my favourite ‘Doctor Who’ audios. I also saw Sarah Sutton; Janet Fielding and Matthew Waterhouse on that day!
In February, I went to see the ‘Shaun the Sheep Movie’ at the cinemas with my parents. I also started ‘The Nyssa Challenge’ on the Big Finish forum for Nyssa’s 34th anniversary. It was an exciting time for me and I enjoyed sharing my thoughts on every Nyssa story each week to the other forum users.
March was another exciting month for me. As well as celebrating Mum’s birthday, I also went to the ‘Valiant 2015’ convention in Sheffield. It was a great weekend as I saw Sarah Sutton; Katy Manning; Louise Jameson; Richard Franklin; etc. I also saw ‘The Power of the Daleks Reimagined’ at a cinema.
In April, I went for a four-day weekend holiday with my parents at South Downs Holiday Village in Chichester for a jazz music weekend with Tony Jacobs. I also saw the ‘TravelWise’ VHS drama with Sarah Sutton; Nicholas Courtney; Nicola Bryant; Colin Baker; etc. It was a very happy viewing experience.
It was my birthday on the 8th of May. I had a happy time having a bacon-butty for lunch and watching my favourite DVDs with a Dominio’s Pizza. Movie-wise, I saw ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ and ‘A Royal Night Out’ at the cinemas. I also went for a weekend holiday with my parents to Stratford.
In June, I was catching up on listening to some ‘Doctor Who’ audios and books to review on Amazon. I also saw ‘The Songbook of Judy Garland’ show at the New Theatre in Cardiff with my parents which my Dad liked. Judy Garland’s daughter Miss Lorna Luft was performing at that event.
In July, I went to a family wedding in Newport. The last weekend in July was a happy time for me as I saw Sarah Sutton and Peter Davison, my favourite TARDIS duo, at ‘H-Con’ in Eastleigh, Hampshire. I got to chat to them both; have some photos with them and asked questions to them at a panel talk!
In August, I had a family holiday with my parents in Oxford for a week which was very nice. At the end of August, I went to the ‘Bournemouth Film and Comic Con’. It was a brilliant weekend as I saw many ‘Doctor Who’ stars and I got to interview Sarah Sutton on my MP3 player which was fantastic!
In September, my best mate Stephen and I celebrated his birthday by going to ‘The Fawlty Towers Dining Experience’ at the Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay which was superb. I also went to the ‘Pandorica 2015’ convention in Bristol which was good. I also started my ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog this month.
In October, I saw a theatre play of ‘A Murder Is Announced’ by Agatha Christie with Judy Cornwell as Miss Marple which was pretty good! I also went to the ‘Dimensions 2015’ convention in Newcastle with ‘Doctor Who’ stars and fans attending. I was also an usher at my cousin’s wedding which went well.
In November, it was my Dad’s birthday and we went to see ‘Suffragette’ with Carey Mulligan at the cinemas. I also saw ‘The Glenn Miller Story’ at the New Theatre in Cardiff with my parents as well as seeing ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ with my best mate Stephen, which were both great to see!
In December, I did my ‘2015 Advent Calendar’ on ‘Bradley’s Basement’ as well going on a trip to London with my parents where we had a meal at Selfridges and attended Great Ormond Street Hospital event. It’s been a great Christmas for me as I enjoyed spending time with my parents again.
2015 has been an enjoyable and exciting year for me! I greatly cherish the happy memories I have of this year and I’m now looking forward to what’s going to happen in 2016 next year! I can’t wait!
Bye for now!
