Seriously, how is it October already???? September really did speed by – I barely have time to think these days but let’s take a peek at the good stuff….
I mentioned in last month’s Liked and Loved that the husband got a new job closer to home which meant that my eldest has had to move schools. As we were late registering for the local school system we had to put a transfer request in. It made things easier actually. The good news is that she got into our first choice school – smallish school about 5-10 minute drive away. There are only 7 in her class! Plus I know the headmistress from my school days and I also know a couple of other parents.
Meeting a Welsh Celebrity and Nostalgia
I crossed paths with a Welsh celebrity during September. Yws Gwynedd is a Welsh singer and an all round nice guy! Although to be fair, it isn’t the fact that he’s a Welsh celeb that made me happy but the nostalgia trip it caused. He was in school with me so when I met him nostalgia really kicked in! In school he was in a band with 3 other guys – including one guy who I’ve been friends with since the very first day of school. So I found their old record and girls and I had a dance to the song. Yws Gwynedd carried on with the music career and has an album out at the moment which I am ashamed to say I don’t own – yet! So if anyone wants to get me a Christmas present… *hint*hint* husband!!
Wedding Anniversary & Date Night
We celebrated 5 years of marriage this September and managed to convince my Mam to look after the girls for a night. So we had date night! Took a little trip to Sopna in Menai Bridge to see our mate Sid. Lovely food as always! We always are treated like royalty and always get amazing food! Would highly recommend the place.
Cinema – The Hitman’s Bodyguard
Not only that but a dinner-date was followed by a trip to the cinema! We went to see The Hitman’s Bodyguard with Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson. It’s action packed and hilarious! It’s not as gruesome as Deadpool but has a very similar style.
For the 25th anniversary (I feel so old!) of Sonic gaming, Sonic Mania was released. It’s gone back to the 116bit style gaming and I LOVE it! I was the Queen of Sonic back in the day!
Another highlight was going to BlogOn Xmas 2017! It was at a new venue but it was a great day! Got to meet a lot of fab fellow bloggers!
