The ‘Love to perform’ dance show.

Well it’s that time again. When my daughter and all the other kids from take themselves off to The Pavillion Theatre in Rhyl.

It’s a long day for the many children who take part, but it it is what they have all been working for all year.

I only saw the evening performance but my wife was there all day to watch both performances.

Maybe I was just not paying attention inn previous years but all the kids were dancing with smiles on their faces and were thoroughly enjoying performing for their family and friends.

All the hard work ‘Miss Jane’ and ‘Miss Laura’ put in throughout the year to work towards the performance makes it all worth it when you see your children on stage taking part.

last year we had 4 of our daughters in the performance but 3 of them did not keep it up, we thought we would give them the option to try it but would not force them to stay. Only Seren persisted with the classes and her hard work paid off as she came away with a ‘special’ award, which was given out to one child from each class. Well done Seren (and all the other children who received one).

Well that’s it until after Easter, when they start working towards another performance next year

Drunken rant :)

I decided after leaving school 20 year ago to go to uni to do what I haver always wanted to do- draw.

Everyone has said to me that I should have done it along time ago, but thinking about it, where would I actually be now if I had?

I have 7 children who would not exist if I had gone to uni 20 years ago,and a grandson. These children would not exist if I had not met their mother and had followed the path that everyone told me to.

I think my life with my 6 daughters and a son is great, a bit hectic at times I must admit but I love it, I would have it no other way.

There was a time that during my 20’s I just wasted (and late teens) drinking and the such.But now , being 37 and a lot more responsible (I think) I have taken it upon myself to better my life and my family’s by going to uni.

I hope that when I finish my university course and start to lead the life that I feel that I am destined to my whole life will be different. Not the contentsof my life, just the path it takes and the end result.

(this was written after 10 cans of Carlsberg, so if it’s a bit eratic then so be it:))

Maybe this is me feeling a bit sentimental.

Anyway, just finishing this can then off to bedski.


Greek Gods in mythology

I have been researching the Greek gods for my phobia brief and have found it extremely interesting. The amount of gods that the Greeks had were astounding, they had one for every occasion, and Zeus was certainly a ladies man as he was the father of many smaller gods in Greek mythology, but the mothers of these offspring varied somewhat .
