A Day Of Fun - Biddy-style

Today has been a fun day!! It started with walking the dog in a crisp and frosty St James Park, I even managed to catch part of 'Changing of the Guard' which is always fun. The marauding hordes of tourists that challenge the murder of crows that haunt the park for the most scary residents.

Lunch was had whilst re-watching 'Battlestar Galactica' (the remake), nothing like Jamie Bamber to aid digestion.

Kicked country radio ass at the hospital!! WOOOOOOO!! An hour on the history of the CMA awards and also this years winners, then an hour of the charts. I recorded it and have entered it into the Golden Mic awards. Fingers crossed I retain my 'Best Specialist Show' award.

Without a pause... off to the cinema for the latest Harry Potter. Interesting... it should have been darker than the last one, while some of the effects were, the tone of the film was more action/adventurey. Good though. Felt there was more chemistry between Hermione and Harry than Cho or Ron.

Out of cinema and a late noodle dinner and with increasing digestion... HOME!! I am now drinking wine and watching the extended highlights of the CMA Awards. Best time of the year! Already heard Kenny Chesney and Willie Nelson.

What a great day!

Sounds like a brilliant day.

Let us know how you get on with the award!

Re HP - I've held off because I expected it to be a lot darker than the last one and want to check it out before I tell the kids yay or nay. Too scary? (They've seen The Mummy on small screen and were fine about it. So if it's not scarier than that...)

I haven't seen The Mummy so I couldn't comment. DO the kids know the story? If they do then it what happens shouldn't be a shock but if they don't...

That does sound like a brilliant day. Can't wait to watch HP myself. As to The Mummy, ds5 was fine, but dd8 had nightmares for half a week.

As a real Kenny Chesney fan you saw the TV show "somewhere in the sun". Did you feel the urge to walk in his footsteps, to visit the places he was talking about, to experience the sunsets he showed you?
We can get you there - on a Caribbean sailing vacation.
Start your Virgin Islands yacht charter in St. Thomas in the Marina American Yacht Harbor in Red Hook, where Kenny keeps his motor yacht. Cruise to St. John and have a burger at his favorite beach bar "Woody's". Make a tour over the island and see the gorgeous views from the hilltops. Anchor in front of palm fringed beaches like Cannel Bay or Trunk Bay and dive into the turquoise waters for a swim or snorkel trip. Have a drink in the cockpit of your crewed charter yacht "when the sun goes down" and get blown away by an indescribable sunset. Sail the BVI and visit one of his featured restaurants at Jost van Dyke, "Sydney's love and peace" and have a delicious lobster meal. Swing in the hammock at White Bay and experience yourself the feeling of "living a different pace".
No shoes, no shirt, no problem!
