Halloween Party Fun

A good time was had by all at the Halloween party, Andy organised the games and I got the food sorted. Probably gave myself a bit too much to do on the food front but the slime soup and blood and guts potatoes were a real hit! Andy, Paul and Tim got all dressed up and went out to see the new Bond movie.

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

I have recently got back into watching movies at the cinema and still have a love of teen movies even though I'm in my 30's. When I heard about the new film Twilight I decided i wanted to read the book first and then I could fairly judge the movie. I have just finished the book and although it took about a week to read the first half i read the last 8 chapters in one session last night. While the book takes a very long time to set the action up the last section of the book has loads of suspence and you'll find yourself completly engrossed in the love story of Bella and Edward. If the film concentrates on the last 8 chapters then it should be really enjoyable. Roll on December.

Happy Birthday Thomas

Happy Birthday Thomas
We are really enjoying our weekend away at Kiln Park in Tenby. Although it was raining, yesterday we went swimming and to a Burger King party to celebrate Bradley Bear's birthday. We started today by opening cards and presents and then we went out for a meal to celebrate Thomas' 2nd Birthday. My Mum, Dad and Sister came down from Carmarthen and we had a lovely pub lunch in which we all had a really good time.
We all sort of separated for a few hours and then met back in the caravan to cut the Wall-E cake.

Wow! Another weekend away

It doesn't seem that long since we were in Devon Cliffs but that was back in June. Today we arrived at our caravan in Kiln Park, Tenby, we're on a weekend away to celebrate Tom's birthday. The boys got so excited that they wore themselves out and went back to the caravan ages ago leaving Seren and I to enjoy the entertainment for tonight.

Glitterwing's Academy

Just started reading this series of books to my 6 year old daughter and she loves them!

Glitterwings Academy: Flying High if the first in a series of books by Titania Woods the pen name Lee Weatherly a respected author of teen fiction.

The book is set around the Glitterwings Academy which is the fairy school to go to. And Twink, the main character, is so excited to be starting her first term. But she is also a little nervous. Will she make friends? And will she be able to pass the all-important test for new students – that of learning to fly?

This book is really well written has been thoroughly enjoyed by myself and my 6 year old daughter – “It’s great!” she said. We can’t wait to start the next book, it’s a must for any little girls.

Return to the Forbidden Plant

If you have nothing to do this weekend then I would highly recommend the musical that is on at the Dolman Theatre this week.

Return to the Forbidden Planet is a production that is loosely based on Shakespeare’s The Tempest with elements of 50’s B-movies and is full of the best rock ‘n’ roll music. The show is set on a spaceship that has been diverted from its usual service job to land on a planet where mad scientist Doctor Prospero and his lovely daughter Miranda are marooned.

The whole production is outstanding; from the sets to the costumes everyone looks the part and fit well into the show’s direction. Excellent performances are given by the whole cast especially David Constant as Dr. Prospero and Georgia Tasker-Davies as the Science Officer.

The director, Gordon Collins, showed his versatility by taking on the role of a newscaster and Paul Chard (Captain Tempest) and Sabrina Sydney (Miranda) performed their roles marvellously. A special mention must go to Joseph Tulloch who played Cookie very well, stealing the hearts of many a lady in the audience.

This feel-good show quickly captured my attention with the inclusion of many classic songs so that I found myself singing and clapping along very quickly. Between the music, humour and brilliant performances this show will keep you laughing and dancing all night.
