Media – 17 Mar 2017 to 24 Mar 2017

One of the things I am loving about the internet is that there are websites to track what I’m doing – fitness, food, music, books, tv/movies. I don’t watch a lot of tv and movies due to a lack of time, but I listen to a lot of music and read a lot and I’ve been having fun getting to see my statistics.

Music
My top artists: Brantley Gilbert, Dierks Bentley, LeAnn Rimes, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Chris Young, Darius Rucker, Dixie Chicks, Kristian Bush and Little Big Town
My top tracks: Brantley Gilbert — Rockin’ Chairs; LeAnn Rimes — The Story; Dierks Bentley — 5-1-5-0; Chris Young — Aw Naw; Carrie Underwood — Before He Cheats
It shouldn’t come as any surprise that my top genres listened to were Country and Modern Country

Books
I read Anne Rice’s Interview With The Vampire & The Vampire Lestat. Today I started reading Queen Of The Damned.
Top genres were – unsurprisngly – Horror & Vampires

Movies & TV
TV None
Movies Interview With The Vampire, Beauty & The Beast 2017
Top genres were Fantasy & Romance

I’m interested to see what next week brings me

Mothering Sunday

Happy Mothering Sunday to all the other mum’s out there.

My little girl (and her daddy) made me breakfast in bed – Full English no less! – and a beautiful bouquet of flowers. I also got The Music Of Nashville S1 CD boxset and S1 of The Walking Dead on DVD. I feel very spoiled, very loved and I’m looking forward to curling up and watching that tonight after Chloe’s gone to sleep.

Paul then said I could spend the day doing whatever I wanted. And honestly, I’m still sitting here in bed. I sprained my ankle yesterday afternoon at the gym so I’m sitting here with it on a pillow, listening to Sam Palladio singing to me and I’ve been reading The Vampire Lestat. Kind of perfect, really.

First post!

Welcome_largeWelcome to Vampires In Cowboy Boots, a personal blog owned by Tabby, hosted by WordPress, and has been open since March 18th, 2017. This is my own little space on the internet where I express myself. If you don’t like my blog, you can click the ‘X’ in the top right corner. Otherwise, enjoy your visit and leave me a lovely comment!

I started blogging, today and I am terrified. I haven’t got the foggiest idea what I’m doing here. WordPress was recommened to me and I’m not exactly tech-savvy but I’m figuring it out so far.

So why have I started a blog? Because so few of my friends in real life really have the same interests as me. They prefer Beyonce to Brad Paisley, Coronation St & The Great British Bake Off to Supernatural & The Vampire Diaries. As for going for a run on the beach or a hike in the woods… forget about it!

A colleague of mine suggested I go online to meet people and to talk to about the things I’m passionate about and here I am!

BEHIND THE NAME
Vampires. Country music. Two of my biggest passions and I do like a good pair of cowboy boots so it only seemed natural to me to put the two things together to make my website name. It may sound silly but Vampires In Cowboy Boots really does sum up my main hobbies in just four words.
