This Week #19

You are stronger than you think.

This week has flown by! Monday, we did something... I forget what. Tuesday I got out of planning committee to attend an emergency school governors' meeting, and did the shopping. I had my first meeting of the Healthier Scrutiny Committee on Wednesday, then on Thursday I took Marianna for a meeting about small schemes and a consultation Bron Afon are doing. She was very good, and very much enjoyed the chocolate biscuit she got hold of.

I had Gwent Police and Crime Panel on Friday; we set the policing precept for next year - it's going to be an increase of 3.99% if you live in Gwent, which equates to about 16p extra per week for a Band D property. On the plus side, they're going to be recruiting again for the first time in years: 100 new PCs over the next two years or so. In the evening Anthony went out, Marianna stayed with my mum, and I had a blissful evening of watching TV by myself. :)

Saturday I just spent the day around my mum and dads, and then on Sunday I went on the Fun Run to fundraise for Coed Eva School. When I say went on I don't mean I ran it, that would be madness. But I did walk 5k on a Sunday morning which is most out of character for me!


At the fun run
Me and Kelly gearing up for the fun run walk.

☆ READING: My Guy magazine from October 14th 1979.


WATCHING: My mum bought Watching (a sitcom from the late 80s and early 90s), so I saw the first series when I was there on Saturday... Not really my thing all in all, but most TV from that era sucked in my opinion!

☆ LISTENING: Sleeping Beauty - Hepburn.

☆ WEARING: Tights instead of leggings. Spring must be coming.

☆ EATING: Cake!



I was tagged to do the Vogue 73 questions challenge, and I planned out the doll house dining room. I did a post for Squirrel Appreciation Day too because I love squirrels. I also wrote a guest post about how Anthony and I met for the 'Beginning of Us' series over at What the Redhead Said, you can read it HERE.

  1. It's quite odd to read your blog and know the things and places your talking about lol!Most of the time everyone is quite far away!

    The support for Coed Eva school has been amazing hasn't it!It was heartbreaking to see what happened.Well done for doing the fun run.

    OMG Watching was one of my favourites back in the day,bet if I watched it again now though I'd find it really naff :-D

    1. I know what you mean! Every time people post about somewhere I know I get all excited, lol. It was really awful - and so upsetting for all the little ones. It's been awesome to see people come together over it though, it was a really good turnout today considering how overcast it was looking.

      I don't think it's aged well! My mum was really enjoying it though, so maybe the nostalgia would make up for it. I'd never seen it before so it didn't have that going for it for me!

  3. Sounds like a busy but productive week! Lots of areas seem to be having policing recruitment drives - I wanted to apply to join as a PCSO up here in Wrexham, but they need you to commit for two years so I'm going to get my MA out of the way and then go for it! :) #HappyDiaries

    1. That's awesome! Our local PCSO is amazing, no other word for it, but they are really overstretched so I hope some of the new recruits make it into our neck of the woods. ;) x
