Week 36 #Project365 – 2014

Well it looks like the second grandchild will be along any day. The midwife has informed the DIL that everything looks fine. She’s getting a few twitches and pains … Ashley still thinks she’s having a cat!!

SUNDAY – We had Ashley for the day and we went to the local park. He liked pushing me on the roundabout and I managed to get a good shot of him on the swing. His speech is coming along but he kept grabbing our hands and saying ‘Go tet’ … we had no idea until we got to the park and he sat on the bench and shouted ‘go tet’ … ah ‘Go sit’ right gotcha!!!

MONDAY – Popped to Newport to get both my watches fixed. One battery and one new strap.  Lots of police about keeping Newport safe – must have been pretty boring just standing about all day.

TUESDAY –  Went to friends for supper and drinks. They bought me some flowers to congratulate me on getting the job.

WEDNESDAY – Orange Wednesday – Let’s be Cops.  A comedy about two layabouts who dress as cops for a party and get mistaken for the real thing. They get mixed up with the local hoodlums and real cops as they keep pretending to be cops. It sounds a bit daft but it was actually a lot better than I thought it would be. Very funny and quite moral for an American film.

THURSDAY – NATO Summit in full swing. Lots of helicopters flying over the area for the past few days.  Did you know it was the biggest security exercise ever in the UK? It gave great exposure to Wales and Newport – perhaps Americans will realise there are places outside of London…
I’m really proud for UK and Wales that it all went off without any problems. Hopefully it’ll generate some good trade and tourism for the UK and Wales.

FRIDAY – A bit of deadheading of the hanging baskets – I’ve been pretty lax with the photos of my baskets this year.. as you see they are still going strong!

SATURDAY – I won some Converse shoes a few weeks ago and I don’t care that I’m a granny wearing them. They are LUSH!!

    The NATO meeting was interesting watching with all the cavalcades. Nice Converse 🙂

  5. Erica Price

    It can be a bit inconvenient with these big summits, but I know what you mean about the pride thing. We had the G8 in Brum some years ago and it was great to have Bill Clinton in town. Love the Converse.

    Some fab images! Yes, my Welsh best mate had to deal with all the air traffic over head during the NATO summit – she did get to see Air Force One flying overheard though 🙂
