Week in Awesomeness 16th to 22nd November

On the back of my last post I feel I have some of my blogging mojo back. It's been a while since I have been prolific in my typing.

This week has been fairly good though and I want to share some of the more awesome elements of my week with you.

When I went on my hen do two weeks ago, we went and saw the Nottingham Panthers Vs Belfast Giants in the ice hockey. I wasn't aware at the time that the assistant coach was my favourite player from my youth, Rob Stewart. What I also didn't know is that mum had emailed the Belfast Giants to see if I could come and meet Rob in one of the intervals. Sadly the email wasn't forwarded on to Rob before the match but on Monday Mum forwarded an email to me from Rob apologising for not meeting up with us due to the delay. He said had he got the email sooner he would have met us after the match for a few drinks (although god knows how he would have handled 17 hens!) but next time we are at a Belfast match he will definitely come and say hi. It's nice to know that my idol in my youth is still awesome. That made my Monday!

Tuesday myself and my SE16 group of friends went to our local bowling alley for owning night. My recent weight training did mean that I managed to achieve some sort of consistency over the night and managed one of my highest scores for some time. Even better, after a few problems with our lanes, we were given free upgrades to the VIP lanes next time we bowl. Result!

On my cycle home on Friday, I was approached by a gentleman on a Boris Bike looking quite lost and looking for instructions to get to London Bridge. As I was going that way anyway I rode with him and ended up having a rather pleasant chat. I got him where he needed to be and I just hope he managed to catch his train in time.

Saturday was filled with Mia cuddles. Andy's best man and wife have just had a baby girl, Mia and we went to visit them on Saturday to meet Mia and to visit their new home. I got lots of cuddles even though it is still a bit terrifying for me to be handling week old babies. They are so delicate I am petrified I am going to break them! I'll get the hang of it one day!

And lastly across Saturday night and Sunday morning, I along with Tadders and Andy survived the Avengers Phase 2 movie marathon at the Prince Charles Cinema. We watched 6 films - Iron Man 3, Thor: Dark World, Captain America: Winter Solider, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Ant-Man. Admittedly I did fall asleep at time but I did manage to make it through the first and last without any sleep.

In all a fairly awesome week!


  1. It was indeed a most awesome week... aside from me buggering up my back I would fully agree 😆
