Hi Guys

A couple of big things happened since I last wrote.

  1. My birthday – 30th
  2. Winning BTCC Tickets – Silverstone
  3. Theatre Trip – Jesus Christ Superstar

My 30th Birthday
My birthday was a little uneventfully as birthdays go, didn’t really do anything on the day, and I got quite bored and irritated at the lack of interesting stuff. The two days after were filled by helping my sister move house. It wasn’t until a couple of weeks later when I got tickets to see the BTCC at Silverstone and a theatre trip that my birthday became something special.

BTCC – Silverstone 26-27 September
20150924_164700I won some tickets to Round 9 of the BTCC (British Touring Car Championship), which was so unexpected. I entered this competition, not believing for one second I was actually going to win – I never seem to win anything – and when they arrived in the post I was amazed and well excited :). I could only go on the Sunday, which was a shame, but hey. I went with my dad, as I couldn’t find anyone else to go with – don’t get me wrong I love my dad, but I would of like to of gone with someone else who I could have a laugh with.

The weather was gorgeous, if a little chilly. I spent some time wandering round the circuit watching the action, and spent some time in the paddock area – which I haven’t been in since I last raced there in 2010 – and met some of the drivers.

Theatre Trip – Jesus Christ Superstar 2 October
20151007_180434I went to the New Theatre in Oxford to see Jesus Christ Superstar for my birthday treat with my family and some friends, there were 9 of us in total. It was well worth going to see, the stage set was stunning, it was (or at least looked) quite simple but it was very effective. The acting was amazing and so was the music, which was being played by a live band. Loved the King Herod part with his nipple tassels and towel clan minions 😀 some light entertainment in a otherwise quite intense show. It was all great, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Other Things
I’m still doing my exercise sessions, body pump, Taekwondo and Konga. I did my own special version of a reverse triathlon a couple of weeks ago – it consisted of a 4 mile run, then a 12 mile bike ride and finished off with a shower to freshen myself up :).

This coming weekend is the season finale of the Welsh Sports and Saloon Car Championship at Pembrey. Fingers crossed that my little black number will decide it wants to go out and play.

Take Care and God Bless
