Week 46 Project365 – 2015

Week 46 Project365 – 2015

A week of excitement and ending with sadness.

Hello all – It’s going to a short one this week!

I’m still keeping up with the Blog Everyday in November challenge! Two weeks done – two to go!

We had a quiet start to the week with nothing much happening. On Tuesday we went to see The Martian again as there wasn’t much else on at the cinema that took our fancy. Enjoyed it even more this time.

I’ve been looking forward to Thursday for a couple of weeks. A few of us South Wales Bloggers were invited to the Gala Opening of the new Cineworld at Friars Walk (I asked them and they said yes.. woo).  The cinema is lovely, all bright lights inside and out!! They showed Steve Jobs at the opening..sorry to say … it’s shite. I put up with it for an hour before we left!
Friars Walk is the new centre in Newport with Debenhams as it’s flagship store. It’s quite stunning! I’ll be writing a post about it over the next day or two.

Today I’ve woken up to very sad world. The atrocities in Paris being one – it’s just awful to know you can’t go about your daily business without the fear of terrorism.

I also learnt that a very dear online friend had passed away. We became friends when we were both members of Lycos IQ some 7 or 8 years ago. When it closed down we became friends on Facebook and I’ve enjoyed his company there.
I’ve seen him agonise over his daughter who had to have major heart surgery when she was just a baby. Going through the sort of decisions no parent should have to face. She’s a gorgeous nine year old now!
He’s taken photo’s of Royalty, the rich and famous and other news features. A very talented professional photographer.
I shall miss you Russel . RIP.

I’m only posting a couple of photos of Friars Walk for you this week. (mainly because I have very little to offer!)

    Sorry to read about your friend and today has been a sad day and puts a hell of a lot things in perspective x x
    The cineworld looks fab – I must get myself to the cinema to see a grown up film sometime!

    Sorry to hear about your friend. I must admit I did wonder if a film about Steve Jobs would be that interesting.

  5. Natasha De Vil

    it’s about time newport had a face lift, it is where I was born, yet apart from the passport office and the retail park I have little desire to visit there unless it’s to see family and friends

      Next time you’re home you’ll have to come see it. 🙂
