Taking some time off to recuperate my mind!

Many of you that read my work over on Blazing Minds, will know how much I work my arse off on the website and how much everything not only takes up a lot of my time but also plays havoc with my health and well-being.

So I’ve decided to take a little time off, not 100%, but enough to try to recuperate some of my mental health from all the stress that doing the majority of the work myself, it’s hard to keep on top of everything and stress at home doesn;t really help with the situations that I’m being put through.

Since starting Blazing Minds back in 2008, it’s been a long and arduous road with many up and downs, the stress of running a site can be overwhelming and keeping everything updated is even more stressful, unlike the big companies/blogs out there, it’s mainly me that is doing the web work, the design, the reviewing, heading to the theatres, cinemas and events to bring the readers of the site new articles.

As you can image, I do need some downtime from time to time, so for starters I’m taking a break from social media for a while and will also not be posting up as much as I do on the blog at Blazing Minds, this is again down to stress levels, watching a stack of movies is time consuming and the majority of the time I’m going into the early hours of the morning watching and writing, which is not healthy!

But don’t worry the site is going, I’m just taking some well-deserved “me” time to try and recharge my mental batteries!

Thank you so much to everyone for your continued support.

Review: Chester Mystery Plays, Chester Cathedral

We Are Chester

We Are Chester’s Tori Erskine steps inside the majestic surroundings of Chester Cathedral to experience the quinquennial production that is Chester Mystery Plays for the first time. Photos: Neil Kendall, unless otherwise stated.

As a theology and religious studies graduate from the University of Chester, the Chester Mystery Plays has always been something I’ve been keen to experience; not only for this reason, but also because they are an essential part of the city’s history and culture, spanning over an impressive 443 years.

This year’s production was especially special, as our editor here at We Are Chester, Angela, was making her on stage debut, playing the part of Mary’s cousin Elizabeth in the Nativity.

There’s no denying how the plays are a great way to bring the city together, as you recognise familiar faces in the audience, and catching…
