Aaron Joins Martial Arts Class

This week Aaron, started to attend the marital arts, self defence and fitness class. He had a wonderful time learning all the moves to protect himself. The classes are unique, they teach children how to defend and protect themselves, discipline and Martial arts moves. Keep fit is also dealt with during the class.

These classes are really good Aaron`s class is similar to the adult class which I attend. We both really enjoy are new life style of keeping healthy and fit.

Keeping fit has always been important to me. Having Daniel you had to be fit and healthy to cope with his size and weight. Both Aaron and I managed him very well.

After losing Daniel all my efforts were put aside. The loss of Daniel hit both Aaron and I very hard. I then fell into a rut which is understandable.

I then met a man, not long after the death of my son, who I thought was very special but again disappointment struck when he turned out to be yet another rotten egg that came into our lives. Thankfully listening to what both his and my friends have said I no he isn't worth it.

Some men have no morals or regard for the feelings of others. It shows the way they are brought up. Selfish and certainly not worth your tears.

The harsh fact is they have to live with themselves for what they have done, I no if I treated any living thing badly from plant to man I couldn't live with myself knowing I have done them harm and wronged them.

My son will be brought up properly to care, think off and respect the feelings of other living creatures on this planet.

Anyway enough of that, now I have got that off my chest.

Our keep fit sessions are proving very worth while. Recently we have also won a few completions. One was a Wii Fit which we are having great fun with. We also were lucky enough to win tickets to a show in Birmingham. ( next blog up ) Wait and see.

Wonder what we will be lucky enough to win next ??????

Snow Falls Again Sunday 21st February 2010

Sunday morning we woke up to around 6" of snow. It wasn't long before Aaron and I had our walking boots on and Fred on his lead.
We headed off down the lanes, then on to the old railway line which runs from one end of the valley to the other.
is time we walked right up to Llangedwyn ( next village up the Valley ) The views around were yet again spectacular. We are lucky living in such a beautiful place.

Maesbury Marsh Canal Walk With Fred

Fred our dog and I set off on the canal walk at Maesbury Marsh on a cloudy Friday. Maesbury like many parts on the Shropshire and the Welsh boarder area`s offer spectacular views as well as relaxing walks in pure fresh air unpolluted by exhaust fumes, people and factory`s. Below are some of the picture`s I took on this circular 1 1/2 mile walk.

Avatar The Movie Orange Wednesday

Last Orange Wednesday Aaron and I did a 2 4 1 Orange and headed to the Odean Wrexham to watch Avatar.
This film was fantastic the special effects were excellent, we both really enjoyed the film. It is well recommended. We watched it in 3 D.

Pancake Day @@@ Errdig & The Cup And Saucer Walk

Pancake day, saw us heading to Errdig nr Wrexham with Helen and my god children Conner and Abigail. We also met many familiar faces there.
Errdig is set in the countryside surrounding Wrexham in North Wales. Today they were holding activities regarding pancake day. The children got to make pancakes, enjoy craft designing a paper pancake, play toss the pancake, throw the pancake, how fast can the chef run and finger painting creations.
We all had a fun time joining in the activities from gluing sticking to cooking.

Later on we headed for a walk around the grounds with the children. Aaron walked handing hand with Abigail she adores him. It was nice to see Aaron wearing his football shirts again. He like me has certainly turned the corner now leaving the past behind.

After our walk we headed to the cafe for a warm drink before Helen had to leave with the children.

The Cup & Saucer Walk

After Helen had left we took Fred our dog for a walk around the grounds outside. Putting our wellies on with an over excited dog can be very tricky.
There are many walks around the estate which I now have all the details of.
The walk we went on today was the Cup and Saucer walk. We took some lovely photographs along the way. Fred had great time running free. The walks at Errdig are really good a mixture of open land, sights to see, river walks, the mote, bailey and the woods.
What a lovely day out.
