Viva Forever! The Spice Girls Reunion Tour 2019 in Cardiff

Many people would have spent months eagerly awaiting the date, after buying the tickets months in advance for the Spice Girls Reunion Tour in the Principality Stadium, Cardiff.  Not me!  When the tickets went on sale last year, I was caught up in the excitement of the “Power of Five”, but with saving to buy a house and seeing them in the O2 Arena on their last reunion tour in December 2007, I could not commit. However, after a drunken brunch with friends, we purchased tickets, deciding to “Never Give Up on the Good Times”, after too many cocktails just over a week ago.

Buying your first home, what you should know and what to expect


Buying a house should be exciting, why do they make it so complicated? I actually think it is better that I am buying a home in my mid-30’s and not younger. After years of saving and listening to everyone’s ‘ house buying horror stories’, I felt ready and prepared when we started looking earlier this year.

The process has made me feel stupid. I do not consider myself an intellect by any means but the jargon, amount of paperwork and ‘rules’ have left me feeling lost, confused and absolutely befuddled on many occasions.

It is fun – or it should be.  Remember why you started to do it; you love to write and be creative.  It should not be a chore.  Could it be you are putting too much pressure on yourself?
