Did you celebrate last night? We don't normally participate in this memorable day, but hubby having a skip full of wood to get rid of, we decided on having a little impromptu bonfire and a few fireworks! We kept these to a minimum as they can be very disturbing to animals and neighbours. I popped some jacket potatoes rubbed in olive oil, salt and pepper into the oven, prepared hot dogs and some home-made profiteroles.
All went down very well, with the profiteroles proving most popular, ;-)
You may remember I'm a big advocate of never being too old to start something new or after a long break. For me this has been dancing both Ballet and Tap! Classes of about 5 - 8 ladies all of a similar age group and all very much interested in keep fit and enjoying themselves. We don't care how well we do or what we look like, it's just fun! So today I seem to have been gently nudged in the direction of an exam! Some seven minutes had me completing the three components for the exam, including a port de bras (arm exercise), steps to music, then for the 'grand finale' - a short dance. All three safely executed, with no slips, trips or brain freezes. Phew!!
Will now have to wait for a couple of weeks to see how I did, but whatever the outcome (I'm sure no one has ever failed!!) it's nice to achieve something at any age really.
A quick visit into town yesterday morning to run a few errands, and visit a few shops, came home with a couple of cute little items - post to follow in the week.
I've been spying the coats that are being favoured now, camel coats seem to be a popular choice both in the shops and in your blogs. So I may have to add one to my collection. Coats aren't really my 'thing' but needing something different, something other than my parka, my dressy black coat or my pink pea coat.
I spotted this camel three quarter length coat in Debenhams. It's unusually quite a dark brown, with a split lapel and two pockets. I'm still very undecided as to what coat I
Let me know if you've seen any suitable offerings in the coat department, and I hope to secure a suitable choice very soon, you'll be first to know when I do!
Have an enjoyable Sunday.
Catch up tomorrow.
