The Grand Tour Presents Seamen Season 4

After a year or so, The Grand Tour is back with season 4, with the first episode being called The Grand Tour Presents Seamen.

The show premiere was actually on Amazon Prime on 13th December 2019, but as this was just before Christmas, I didn’t write about it.

However I of course did watch it, and this is what it’s all about.

First blog post of 2020 on Michael 84

Hey guys!

Yes, I am still here, we’ve made it to 2020!

This must be the longest blog break I have done, not posting for around 10 days. But it has been Christmas and then New Year, so I guess everyone has been busy to just relaxing.

I hope that everyone had a good Christmas and New Year, and got themselves something good over the festive season, or bought stuff from the sales.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be showcasing what I got…

Newcastle Christmas Market – Photos & Everything You Need To Know (Review)

Newcastle Christmas Market At Northumberland Street

For the past few weeks Newcastle Christmas Markets have been in the town, and I decided that I would go and check them out.

Here’s some pictures, and information about the Christmas Markets in Newcastle this year.

When they announced that they would extend Newcastle’s Christmas Market, I was excited. I thought it would be a great thing for the city. But then I later found out that the council had basically sold the rights to the markets to a company based in Nottingham. So we’re already off to a bad start.

Fenwick Christmas Window 2019 In Newcastle By Michael 84

It’s been that time of the year again, it’s Christmas which means a few things, and in Newcastle it means the Fenwick Christmas Window.

If you’re not from Newcastle or you’re just unaware, Fenwick dresses up their window every year in some kind of theme for the festive season. Sometimes it’s holiday related, such as last year when it was the Snowman, and other times it’s related to other childhood memories.

In 2019 the Fenwick Christmas Window is Charlie and the chocolate factory. It’s not something I ever loved as a kid, but it’s a story that virtually everyone knows and remembers. This year it also has the Christmas Market to contend with, which is on Northumberland Street too.

As always, each window tells a different part of the story, and here’s every window for you to see if you haven’t already checked it out.

Leeds United: Take Us Home Documentary Review

As you’ll know I am quite a fan of football and football documentaries and films, and this has been in my watch list for quite a while. Leeds United, Take Us Home is another football documentary, this one showcasing the 2018-19 season for Leeds.

I am somewhat of a veteran of football documentaries now (I should make a best of list), loving the Man City All Or Nothing doc, Inside Borussia Dortmund and Six Dreams to name only three. This one is of a similar structure, following Leeds through the 2018-19 season.
