Big Brother 2012

Aug 27

BigbrotherI was reading through my Film and Television posts and not only saw that I hardly had any posts, which is really strange considering that I spend about 99.9% of my time infront of a television! But also, that my favourite t.v programme Big Brother wasn’t mentioned!

I cannot stand missing an episode of  Big Brother because there is always something happening! Arguments, tasks, and evictions. If you’ve never heard of Big Brother before, it basically involves housemates living in a house and completing tasks and trying to stay till the end, I know that sounds pretty boring, but trust me it certainly is not!!

WARNING! Watching Big Brother may result in having no life!

The London 2012 Olympic Games

Aug 16

the olympic logo2012 has been a very busy year for Great Britain, we celebrated the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and quite recently held the London 2012 Olympic Games. I know the Olympics have sadly some to an end, but I think a massive event like the Olympics deserves a mention! It all kicked off with the Olympic Opening Ceremony which was truly incredible to watch. The ceremony was shortly followed by many events such as rowing, diving, athletics, cycling, tennis and my favourite event, Gymnastics.

Team GB did an amazing job this year, ending up 3rd on the medal table, winning an incredible total of 65 medals, 29 of which were Gold!! They definitely did us proud.

Luke Campbell is just one of our gold medallists, who won gold in boxing. Luke is from Hull, which is where my grandad, cousins, auntie and uncle live, and is also where my dad was born. Not only that, but my dad was born on Hessle Road which is where Luke is from! Also, Samantha Murray who won a modern pentathlon silver medal for Great Britain in the final event of the London 2012 Olympic Games, is from Clitheroe, which is literally 5 minutes away from where I live and I also go to school there aswell! So of course, we were very happy when they won us a gold and silver medal! Overall, the Olympic Games was amazing and I am proud of all of our athletes.

Diamond Jubilee 2012

Jun 04

DiamondJubileeThe  Diamond Jubilee is taking place this weekend, and is a very exciting celebration! I don’t know what you’ve got planned for the event, but lots of people are having street parties and barbecues and putting flags everywhere. My street has been decorated with lines of flags and looks really colourful.

I love watching the Jubilee celebration on television because there isn’t going to be another Jubilee for a while yet so you’ve got to make the most of it. The Armada was the most amazing thing to see. One thousand boats sailed across the Thames in honour of her majesty, and you got to see this incredible sight from a sky view on tv, and it was definitely one of the best things I’ve ever seen.

60 years of ruling is definitely something to celebrate for the queen, and I admire her for the visits she recently paid to various towns, villages and cities. I’m now watching the Diamond Jubilee Concert on BBC 1 and loads of exciting acts are performing. I don’t want this celebration to end because it’s something for everyone to be excited about and join in to!

My love of Crime Dramas

Apr 23

CriminalmindsI’ve started watching alot of crime dramas, one of them being ‘Criminal Minds’. I actually have an obsession with it. It’s a television series about a team that work in a ‘behavour analysis unit’, who solve murders and find the person who is responsible, who they call an ‘un-sub’, which stands for unknown-subject. It’s such an amazing programme, and will have you on the edge of your seat everytime. Criminal Minds is on every Friday or Saturday at 9:00 pm on Sky Living, so be sure to check it out!
