When I first started writing a blog, I didn’t actually realise I was writing a blog. I was an avid user of Piczo at the time, and I mainly used my site to showcase my “graphic design” skills.

But then one day I added a text box to the home page of my Piczo site, typed out the date, and then proceeded to write about what I had got up to that particular day. In fact I probably wrote about going to see The Dark Knight at the cinema because, let’s face it, that’s all I did in the summer of 2008. This was my very first blog post, even if I didn’t know it at the time.

British Music Experience in Liverpool

The British Music Experience is an exhibition all about the history of the British music industry. It was previously on show at the O2 in London but it’s now on at the Cunard Building in Liverpool, which is rather fitting considering Liverpool is a UNESCO City of Music.

As soon as I heard that the exhibition was coming to Liverpool I knew I had to go. I’m very passionate about British music and the history of the industry is something that fascinates me. So after a crappy couple of weeks, Tyrone and I decided to buy ourselves so tickets and headed over there one Saturday morning.

My last Weekend Blog post was titled “A tough couple of weeks“. I feel the need to extend this to “A tough month”.

Let me take you back to last week. I went back to work on the Tuesday, after being off on Bank Holiday Monday, and by lunch time I was back at home. I don’t know what happened. I felt so overwhelmed with sadness that I couldn’t stop crying at work. I wasn’t getting any work done in the mood I was in, so I ended up going home and taking the rest of the week off.
