Nobody puts Baby in the corner...

I think I may watch Dirty Dancing tonight. It's one of those films where you go day by day, night by night and then one day remember that you have the DVD and it's been months since you watched it last. You then snuggle up under the duvet with a packet of Haribo and it all becomes clear why you love the film soooo flipping much.
It is though such a shame that the reason why I have been prompt to watch it again tonight is because Patrick sadly lost his 2 year battle against cancer yesterday. He really did hit it big with Dirty Dancing in '87 didn't he? What a man with movement!
Wedding plans are looking promising and already I can see how easy it is to spend a grand or two! I have had to pick Dad up off the floor a few times and that's before buying the dress. I am sure though that it will all be worth it and help to make Christmas 2010 one to remember. I am hoping for one of those crisp, sunny mornings with a bite in the air and wouldn't mind one bit if a blanket of snow appeared on cue either!
Back at Activity Wales HQ preparations are arising ready for the release of this years Christmas Gift Voucher batch, full of many experiences to suit every kind of kid. I know it's September but Christmas will come and bite you in the bum if your not careful! And anyway what is wrong with being prepared?
I do sometimes wonder whether it is worth now listing a few examples of activities on offer but I don't want to be seen as just randomly 'selecting' a few when it is so easy to do a search from the homepage. Everything within the drop down can be booked as an Experience Day Gift Voucher and will be posted out complete with presentation box and free drawstring sports bag too. What a thoughtful pressie to sit underneath the Christmas tree! All you need to do is tie the bow...

Just a Little Run Around the World...

Isn't it scary how the months pass, the season's forever seem to be changing and the Summer has passed for another year?

I hate it when a day ends. I always feel as though I should have done more. I suppose sometimes it's pure laziness if I don't end up doing a lot or... yeah actually it is just being lazy. The Bank Holiday for me was pretty chilled, but I wanted it that way. Saturday Mart and I bought a cute sofa for the new pad, dinner at Frankie and Bennie's then out celebrating the end of the cricket season. Sunday, haha oh Sunday was a pretty memorable day. Mart was feeling a little ill after the night before, though we did manage to take a look around the Church for our wedding next year and pop for a bite to eat afterwards. I don't think I have ever seen him struggle to drink a beer like that in the whole time we have been together. Thinking on it I should have taken a photo to stick in the album! We ended Sunday with a massive duvet afternoon watching TV. Monday, well Monday was a bit of a strange day. We weren't too sure what we actually wanted to do so ended up spending pennies in Tesco. Spent the afternoon wandering around Tenby having a drink or two and getting a pressie for mum and dad.
I bought them a copy of the extraordinary true story of Rosie Swale Pope. Rosie amazingly took a 'Little Run Around the World' for 5 years, tackling 3 packs of wolves and 53 pairs of shoes in memory of her husband who died of cancer. Rosie funded her trip from the rent of her little cottage Salad Days in Tenby, let through Coastal Cottages of Pembrokeshire.
Rosie herself lives in the popular seaside town of Tenby and yesterday was partaking in a book signing at Tenby Bookshop. Spotting a terrific oppurtunity I popped along, said hello and got a signature for mum and dad. Sorted.
