Yesterday was my Birthday 😀
I guess there is a chance that the title gave that away… and I may have mentioned it in yesterdays post...I like birthdays…so there :-p
(I also reserve the right to act like a child 😉 )
As it was my birthday, baking happened…I made 68 mini oreo cheesecakes as invented by Martha Stewart
You will be pleased to know that of the 68 I managed to eat 2… and give away about 55…so I haven’t undone all the good work this year has been about :-p
however, they are awesome so you should all make them…but give a lot of them away!
Other than baking and avoiding eating all the cheesecake which was hard, I had a birthday full of mediocrity at work and awesomeness at dancing and walking around during my lunchbreak!
A small copse that I haven’t explored recently, that was full of bluebells!
the yellow phase of spring is giving way now to the pink and purple phase 🙂
It was a nice walk, there was sunshine and flowers and not too much route marching, which made a nice change 🙂 I ended up going about 2.5km, but I am not 100%sure and my phone gps lost me when I was in the trees and claims I was stopped…I wasn’t stopped :-p
Pink and purple bluebell walk over, it was time to (after working of course) head out to dance practice, armed with cheesecakes, which I force fed people so they would be too full to dance making me look better…
Ok…I am not really that mean, but they did get polished off pretty quickly.
Not 68 of them…some went to work…
It was an awesome evening of dancing!
so much dancing! The most dancing I have ever don in one practice!
well to be completely accurate about it (which is important you know) the most dancing I have done in one practice since I started counting the dances I do at practice…which is quite a while now…and to be honest, before i started counting I probably did less due to being less fit..
We kicked off practice with the final rehearsal for the story we are doing on saturday (the first dance out of the season 🙂 ) it is the kings men story, and I am going to be in every dance.
Which will be a good indicator of whether I am on my way to being “Fit Enough to Dance in a mask”
It will also be an interesting experiment into whether I will die doing 6 dances in a row…probably not but just watch out for lack of posts next week…
it is the mask that makes all the difference!
I am sure it will be fine, It is always slightly nerve-wracking doing the first dance out in a while!
we went through the story in real time (without pauses for faffing about) and therefore got the whole thing done and still left time for a plethora of other dances…
all in all I danced:
Our Henry (x2)
Star of the County Down
Raggle Taggle Gypsy (x3 :-S )
King of the Fairies
Foul Mouth Cat
Spank the Monkey
which is 17 dances!! 17! which beat my previous record by 3 dances 😀
Woohoo! new record and lots of fun all on my Birthday!
And with that day 299 complete 🙂
