Rock-Kay-Roll in Anglesey

Hello there,

Lots been going on and many apologies for not being in touch! Kay and I did our week-long big adventure - a week in a cottage in Anglesey...

We chose the worst possible week weather-wise but we found plenty to do...drinking mostly! We had a goth night, a posh night, treat days and an afternoon at a health spa - v.relaxing..

5am was vodka o'clock and Mika and the soundtrack to Juno was never far from the stereo
The cottage has its own hot tub and sauna - but we only used it once. Too much other stuff to do!

Betws-y-Coed was enjoyed, Snowdon seen and Bangor Tesco raided! We acted like 'big rock stars' drinking Champagne and falling over doing silly dance moves...

But now its all over.... :(

Got back and drowned my sorrows at the We Will Rock You 'after show do' at Eddie's.... Walked home at 4am - There went that weekend!
