Realised I haven’t mentioned anything about half term and our trip to Wales and the ‘storm of the century’ and what I eventually wore at Halloween etc.
So:- It was half term last week. We went to Wales. At one point it was rather windy & I feared our accommodation might blow off the hilltop and into the Tay estuary… but it didn’t, so that was good. The whole place put me in mind of Kellerman’s Mountain Retreat from Dirty Dancing (but sadly lacking in the Johnny Castle department.)
We also went to Chester for a couple of days. A 5½ hours journey by train from Carmarthen! Numb-bum times. Lovely scenery though.
Went to Chester Zoo and almost had to have ‘the talk’.
“Mum look at those animals giving each other piggy backs!”
” Ha ha Hmmm,, moving on. Look there’s the gift shop!”
Back in the projects for Halloween (you know you’re back in the hood when the trick or treaters come round on mini quad bikes! )
In the finish I utilised the sequined frock I bought for 70’s night at Magic Loungeabout the other year and went as ‘The Death of a Disco Dancer’ (#Smithsfans) Not sure the native teenage populus were expecting this when they knocked on the door. Especially when I went into teacher mode and gave them a dressing down for not dressing up or saying please and thank you as they tried to jip me of my double lollies and fizz whizz.
Bman didn’t bother this year.
And that, as they say, was about that…
Ciao peeps Xx
