A Look Back
So it’s been a little while since I blogged and I have been a little bit busier than usual. I’ve also not had much chance to get on a PC at work and just sit and blog what’s on my mind. Not completely to blame as I can always blog at home but it helps as discussion at work often triggers thoughts and things that I’d like to blog. I do have a application on my iPhone which connects to this blog but it’s still not quite there for me to use regularly.
Since my last post about OnLive I’ve actually had a wee holiday over the Easter weekend. This was spent in Wales but more specifically in the Brecon Beacons. The weather was lovely, gorgeous sunshine all weekend allowing us to have clear views from the top of the mountains we went up. The peaks we reached were Pen Y Fan, Fan y Big and Corn Du. Cat worked out that we had a total of 1,081m of total ascent which is pretty cool. We had one really long walk which was about 8 miles and one a bit shorter. It was hard work at times as the climbs up often went right up the contours but was still good exercise. There are pictures up on Cati’s photo gallery so enjoy the shots as some are beautiful.
The other major thing is two of our friends got married this weekend past and it was such a lovely weekend. The weather held out, the ceremony was lovely and one of the strangest things to date happened to me. Here’s the scoop. I drove down to Bournemouth where the wedding was on the morning of the ceremony. I got there in good time and once I’d been led in to check out where it would be held, as I was doing the video recording, I went to wait outside for the equipment. As guests arrived someone said to me “you don’t recognise me in this context do you!?” I then turned to see who this was and to my suprise it was my chiropractor! Now I only met this person by chance as her practice was giving free preliminary back exams at Cribbs one weekend and after that consulation I decided to seek regular treatment. It turns out however that she lived with the brides parents for five years! They say it’s a small world but that was just down right amazing. Anyway it certainly created a talking point for the rest of the weekend.
The weekend ended with a bouncy castle after party which I left around noon to get back to see United get knocked out of the FA Cup. It was a shame but in my heart of hearts knew United wouldn’t win the quintuple. So on to this weekend and Catrin and I are visiting my brother and sister-in-law in Edinburgh. I’m really looking forward to it and with any luck we’ll be walking up Arthur’s Seat.
