Its been a lovely Christmas. I always find this time of year curious, as the scramble to see folk you are available to see all year round becomes pronounced. It makes me question why I don’t make more of an effort in the year, and for 2023, I think that needs to be my focus. We have friends up and down the country and overseas and Covid caused a rift of time that has still to be healed in some friendships.
Yet, December was filled with friends, family and trips to the theatre, panto, ice skating, and many Christmas markets.
To say we crammed a lifetime in December would be accurate. We have finished the year lucky, and full of cheese and wine.
However a highlight was this weekend, where a trip to review Stranger Things: The Experience occurred.
My youngest daughter is a ST fanatic, she knows much about The Upside Down, demogorgons, and the adventures of Eleven and her gang, so her excitement on Christmas Day when she unwrapped her gift was paramount. We headed to London, paused to meet close friends and godchildren, and then uber’ed out to Brent Cross to spend some time in Hawkins!
It is a cracking experience. Photography and filming inside are forbidden, and I am loathe to share too many spoilers, as its an experience you need to experience rather than read about.
But every detail is paid attention to, if you call the number for Surf’s pizza, you will get Surf’s pizza!
And of course you can buy a slice whilst you are there!
After the experience, where you get super hands on, you get to hang out in Hawkins – playing video games – move over 2022 games – I am talking PacMan, Space Invaders – games I can actually understand and play!
Plus you get to meet some of the stars……
But… if you want to visit, you are going to have to be quick, as Stranger Things: The Experience leaves London in 8 days! You can book tickets on this link here.
We highly recommend it!
Then tonight, ironically our plans have collapsed because of that pesky Covid again, so it will be a quiet New Year for my family, me , the eternal single pringle, and my kids who are quickly becoming less childlike, midnight looks unlikely, but tomorrow offers a new year, full of promise, hope and aspiration.
Plan is to make it the best one yet, as we only get one shot at this 🙂
Happy New Year all
