FATHERS DAY – NAY – FATHERS WEEK FOR ME

Today is Father Day but I've had a Father's Week.  Time for a quiet day of rest & contemplation! 🙂 Four nights this week brought me even more of the magic of salsa dancing with amazing partners - particularly at Southampton University Student Union on Saturday where I had an interesting chat with a lady who asked me about my life since salsa began. It reminded me how I got where I am today and how much I love my life and the people in it! Although she had never danced salsa before I Read more [...]

Happy 60th Anniversary of Independence Day to Ghana & my Kente shirts!

Where would I be without my Kente shirts! Thank you Ghana - you changed my life forever! My original shirts were a present from by ex-wife after she visited Ghana to collect an African Achievers Award but they suffered a bit from wear, washing, drying & ironing so I was very pleased to find that Afrofrocks sold them online for a reasonable price! 🙂 Read more [...]

Diary 2016-07-28 Moved just one mile down the road!

Isn't it good when a plan comes together! Today I moved a mile down the road from an end-terraced house to a studio flat. I was quite looking forward to it because the house was too big for just me and the studio flat is a lot better that the bedsit I lived in when my parents went to live in Wales many years ago. I remember entertaining my first wife-to-be there so it must have been in 1972. I remember getting a stiff letter from the landlord when he discovered from one of the other tenants that Read more [...]

Diary: Sunday 29th May 2016

After a lovely weekend in Uxbridge with my ex & Katie which featured me strimming the front garden and making it look much neater than before I drove down to the The Bedford in Balham for a dreamy night of salsa.  I took the M25/M4 route to minimize traffic and arrived at 10pm after an hour's drive just in time to miss the lessons and go straight to the social dancing as is my wont.  I had some wonderful dances which will be imprinted on my mind forever but had to leave a bit earlier than Read more [...]

Diary: Monday 23rd May 2016 – Sunny or Moody!

I had a pleasant walk through the Gosport Town Shopping Precinct from the Morrison's end this afternoon and ended up at the Gosport Ferry end.  I walked down the right hand side of the access pontoon and went through the sliding doors at the end on the right to the pontoon which is marked Authorised persons only so that I could have an uninterrupted view of the Solent on what was a lovely sunny day - so sunny was carrying my leather jacket instead of wearing it.  I took a picture as you can Read more [...]

Dancing at Drift tonight was great upstairs once it got started - had lots of lovely salsa & bachata dances and even a merengue & a kizomba!

It's been a busy day but very productive having now got my new blog site www.wake.co.uk going well including the facility for people to connect via facebook for making comments and sharing on facebook & other Read more [...]
