Sheffield Wednesday vs Millwall

The other week at work we were offered the chance to go and watch Sheffield Wednesday vs Millwall. After a few people dropped out, the decision to go to the match relied totally on our taxi driver Alex. With absolutely no pressure from us, she decided we would go so we set off up the road to Sheffield.

We parked next to KFC and bought a healthy salad to eat on the walk up to Hillsborough. We got to our seats in perfect time as the referee blew his whistle to start the game.

After a poor first half, the second half was much more exciting! I wasn’t planning on making a video but I just so happened to catch all the key moments of the game. Sometimes the best videos are the ones that are unplanned and freestyled, with a bit of luck to capture just the right moment!

As you can probably tell by the video we left the stadium absolutely buzzing about what we had just seen. It was a great trip and an exciting end to a game of football for the neutral. I even think Alex may have enjoyed it to.

Dancing the Waltz…

Every year Mum and I watch Strictly Come Dancing and every year we always say we would try and learn. We never got round to doing so because of being at University and an all round general lack of self confidence and belief. However, towards the end of October 2013, I decided that we should be less talk and more walk, so I found the local dance studio and booked us in for a new beginners class that was just starting up.

Fast forward to July 2014 and we could dance a basic routine for the Social Foxtrot, Cha-cha-cha, Jive, Rumba, Tango, Quickstep and Waltz. We only missed a handful of sessions and Tuesday night really was the highlight of our week.

On our last class before moving away to Mansfield. I wanted to make sure I got a video of us dancing, just for proof that we actually did it! Im even more pleased about this video because it almost didn’t happen. My phone had run out of memory but luckily Mum brought her tablet along so we managed to film on that. I chose the Waltz as it was my favourite.

I’m really proud of what Mum and I achieved. It just goes to show that anyone can achieve anything if you put your mind, and dancing feet to it.

Next stop, the Tower Ballroom, Blackpool.
