Oliver! 1968

Once or twice a year I re-enter my Oliver! admiration/misery rut. It is my favourite musical of all time and one of my favourite films. There are so many reasons why so I thought I’d talk about today to try and get some of my emo Oliver! feelings out of my system. As I write…… Continue reading Oliver! 1968

Stranger Things

I think it’s time I wrote a blog post about Stranger Things.
