‘Winding down the year’

Well the year’s very nearly over.  Is it just me, or does this decade seem the shortest decade ever?  It seems only yesterday that we celebrated the Millenium.  It’s frightening how life is galloping on, and the pace seems more and more frantic the older I get. There is a feeling of winding down asContinue reading “‘Winding down the year’”

Cool Places: The Minus 5 Ice Bar, Mandalay Hotel, Las Vegas Navada USA

Just a quick one before going out.  Spent most of the day painting (as in painting and decorating).  All white paint in my hair (at least I THINK it’s white paint…lol!).  The colour scheme? not mine I may add….white paint on white paint.  I’ve got that snow blindness or whatever you call it.  Antarctic.   I’dContinue reading “Cool Places: The Minus 5 Ice Bar, Mandalay Hotel, Las Vegas Navada USA”

Cocktails: My New Art Form?

Firstly, I’d like to say that I know nothing about cocktails.  I’ve only ever had a couple of cocktails in my whole life.   By this, I mean Pina Colada’s, Margueritas etc: old hat.    The cocktails I had in Las Vegas were an entirely different matter though: they has lots of different stuff in em.   Maybe it’s becauseContinue reading “Cocktails: My New Art Form?”

Go Ahead and Roam in Caesars Palace

Some of the hotels and arcades are fantastic in Las Vegas, some, well a bit tacky.  Caesars Palace was a not bad one though.  Wall to wall designer shops (Italian of course).  The false sky however I think, is a bad idea as it always seems to be gloomy, even though it’s cracking the flagsContinue reading “Go Ahead and Roam in Caesars Palace”

Mother of the Bride STILL fascinating!

Just a short one tonight, been very busy with my photos (took me hours).  We took about 300 for the week, but I also recorded short  bits of films (3 hours worth).  I’ve not got round to watching them yet, so I hope they’ve turned out ok! Here’s me with my fascinater on!  And I managedContinue reading “Mother of the Bride STILL fascinating!”

What happened in Vegas stays here! Why?

Last Friday, 20th March my daughter got married in Las Vegas.  The wedding was in the Little White Chapel.  It was their dream to get married in Vegas, so all we could do was go along with it lol!  None of us had ever been to the US before, so that itself was an experience. Continue reading “What happened in Vegas stays here! Why?”

It’s all over now. Gone and best forgotten

  Well that’s the end of it.  2008 is no more: welcome 2009!  Lots of things happened this year.  I gave up smoking, finally after a zillion years.  And I’ve put some lbs on that I’m NOT happy with at all.  Still, that’s what New Year is for isn’t it? resolutions.  I always start outContinue reading “It’s all over now.
