Farewell Caerleon

Last night we were treated to a performance by the CWMBACH Male Voice Choir.

Afterwards, they joined us in the bar and continued with their entertainment. A great group of lads, with fantastic voices! My feet were killing me by 11, so I went and sat outside on a bench with my feet up. Little did I know that that was exactly where the choir would be boarding their coaches at midnight. So it gave me opportunity to chat to a couple before they left. I’m sure quite a few of them were half cut by that stage ๐Ÿ˜‰

I found out later that I’d missed a very entertaining table dancing session from Jane Wenham-Jones, So if anyone filmed it? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Finally got to bed at quarter to 1 after saying a few goodbyes and slept straight through to 6 this morning. So then it was a quick cuppa, pack up the car, and off I set. Had to stop twice because my feet were killing me, and sat in traffic on the M4 and M25.

Still, it’s good to be home ๐Ÿ™‚ I popped in to see my local pharmacist, who says it looks like I’ve had an allergic reaction to the gnat bites (which I was informed last night aren’t gnats, they’re bloody mosquito’s!!!!!!) and if the swelling isn’t gone by Monday to see my GP as I might need antibiotics ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Fingers crossed, I am soooo sick of looking like ‘the elephant woman’ lol. (NOTE TO SELF – Take insect repellant to Swanwick!!!!!)

So this afternoon and evening, you will find me with my feet up on the sofa, perusing all my notes I’ve made this week and thinking about the things I’ve learnt, the things I still need to learn and exactly which direction I want to go in next…..lots to think about, I’ll share soon ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you’ve all had a good week….What have you been up to?

PS: The normal schedule will resume tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Yep, didn’t have a choice really lol. I did stop 3 times on the way home, and left early as they are better first thing in the morning ๐Ÿ™‚

      I was in a state when I got home though ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Thanks Sandra, Drs for me tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜ฆ



  1. I think โ€˜the endโ€™ is one of the main reasons I honestly choose not to go to too many places. There are many times that I can remember when a show ended, a trip ended, a festival ended, and I couldn’t help but say aloud: โ€˜Butโ€ฆ I don’t want it to be over.โ€™

    I’m sure you enjoyed everyday of your trip and made sure to take plenty of notes, as well as make plenty of interesting conversations along the way. Just think, one of these days, you’ll have a story to tell others that begins something like, โ€˜I got chewed up at that writer convention. Let me tell you what I meanโ€ฆโ€™


    • Lol, I know exactly what you mean, but, my trip was a bit tainted with the painful swollen feet ๐Ÿ˜ฆ By the end of the week I was definitely happy to come home ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Ha ha ha, yeah, I definitely got chewed up….eaten alive in fact! Blooming mozzies! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Thanks hon, I know what you’re saying. I LOVE having new experiences, and this was definitely one I will NEVER forget ๐Ÿ™‚
