One Direction ‘This Is Us’ Movie *Contains Spoilers*

The day the premiere of One Direction had arrived Tuesday 20th August 2013. I was a very lucky lady indeed to receive tickets to advanced screening of the film in Sheffield. I could hardly contain my excitement because as you know I am a major fangirl of the 1D Lads.

One Direction at This Is Us premiere in London

 The screening started at 5:30 showing the live stream from the red carpet premiere in London. I was at that point clapping and singing along with the other girls at the screening even i 95% was a GREAT deal younger than myself but HEY i will bond with anyone who can belt out the Take Me Home album at the top of their lungs. There was a wake up call when the Lads arrived on the red carpet and a girl of 8, screamed ‘Pinch me… I must be dreaming’ and another one ‘Niall you sexy Irish Leprechaun get in my bed’ where i found myself do a double take but that was soon forgotten when the Lads winked and kissed the camera, queue swooning.

OH My DAYS it was incredible (Not that I’m Biased}, The documentary was every directioners dream there was plenty of laughter, songs and even teary bits from the Lads parents which had me weeping like a baby.

Favourite bits


but if i had to be picky here were my top  moments

1. When the Boys went Home. You get a glimpse of their home life and their life before X Factor, seeing the boys at home and acting like the down to earth lads you expect them to be. You even get to meet louis northern Gran who seems like a legend and wants to make an appearance at a show when she gets some ear plugs.

2. When Harry and Liam are just chilling on a dock of some sort. Harry just lying there being beautiful and Liam is doing some graft catching a fish, until he finally catches a decent sized fish and the pair of them are pratting around with this fish, with them both dying of laughter. Which resulted in myself crying wth tears.

3.  The Concert. Seeing the concert in 3D was amazing, even if i was scanning the crowd to see if i could see myself at the concert. Even though i think they must of cut my footage as I was basically shaking my boobs at Mr Harry Styles. Perks of the 3D made it very up close and personal, had to stop myself from reaching out to stroke Liam’s face. I was singing along to my favourite songs and shedding a little tear for ‘Little Things’ as i am teenage girl after all (Well I like to think I am)

4. Im sorry but i can’t miss out the bit where Niall is at Pride Park watching Derby County play. As I am also a Derby girl! COME ON YOU RAMS.

5. When the lads perform a backstage run through of little things and Niall and HARRY have a moment on bonding. NARRY alert. Harry very romantically shoves his finger up Niallers nose whilst singing the heart warming song and flicks his bogie away. So beautiful.

THis is as i said a directioner’s dream but even those who not so much fans of the lads will enjoy it as it reveals how relatable they are and down to earth. THye been given an opportunity and are grabbing by the horns. SO hats off to them. I wouldn’t change this for the world (Especially Harry in his boxers) but i would like to of learnt something new about the boys, but this might just be a sign that I in fact know too much about them and in fact am a stalker.

In cinemas from the 29th!

This Is Us


My re ignited love for the game.

When I was younger I was a hardcore Derby County Fan… as a highly populated male family, it seemed second nature to go to matches, I also lived around the corner from Pride Park. I have very fond memories of most saturday or Wednesday nights attending the matches, freezing my ass off in winter. You cannot beat the atmosphere at a game. It was also the only acceptable time I was allowed to shout profanities at strangers, without the disapproving look from my mother (Even though she the worst of them) Whereas my Dad just looked proud.

Looking back 2004-2005 was my best season and ones i fondly remember with the likes of  Idiakez, Paul Peschisolido and Grzegorz Rasiak and finishing fourth in the league.  Another memory is seeing Manchester united play against Derby in 2002 with the babe that is David Beckham playing, that game also introduced me to my first streaker who took it upon himself to run the length of the pitch and swing on the goal post bars right in front of me. I remember my Dad pissing himself laughing while my mother attempted to cover my eyes, It’s safe to say i was scarred for life.

I also have found memories of my family bonding over our love for the game. BBQ’s and family gatherings were a common occurence as we watched matches on the television if we were unable to attend the actual match and being able to hear the crowd from my house always brought a smile to my face.

Around the age of 15, I stopped getting a season ticket and attending matches. I started to gain interest in girly things, a shock I know. Soon sixth form came and then University and football was the last thing on my mind. Even though I always remained a firm supporter of Derby County and was always kept in the loop by my family.

The past year though I have starting gaining my interest back into football as I went to watch family members play a local game. After attending I soon got the thrill and excitement back of watching football. I was also influenced by my housemate who is a hardcore Liverpool fan and football fanatic. Now I often watch every match I can.

By my re ignited love for the game has also got some family relationship closer including my brother and Dad. Even though I admit that I was close to them before as I have ‘Lad’s’ sense of humour, but we are now able to have conversations about football and a massive bitch fest about opposing teams like Nottingham Forest. My family is mostly Derby County fans but my mum’s side is also Leicester city fans and unfortunately my stepdad is a Nottingham forest fan. As you can imagine family gathering, birthdays and christmas is very entertaining.
