Here is this weeks “Sunday” Sevens post, linking up to Natalie to give a snap shot view of how the last week has gone.


With a very hectic week running up to our Nationals in Blackpool this weeks update is slightly later than it should be. Apologies.

Thankfully we decided not to modify any of the dresses before IVDC so there was no mad rush to sew or stone any dresses this week ๐Ÿ™‚ it wasn’t quite a sit back and smell the flowers kind of week although this lovely bunch that Philip sent Nikki for Valentine’s day did get admired quite a bit during the week.

And there was some last minute repairs going on. At least Nikki’s shoes were fixed during the week and not on the day – like Pippa had to do for one of the other dancers…

Since Zilly stayed at home this time Mini Zee came along with us to see what all the fuss is about. He was slightly worried that we might not make it there when we found out that the M6Toll was entirely closed but we made it and he enjoyed the beach, a lovely Italian meal out, Celebratory Baileys at the end of the comp and Katsu Curry at two different service stations on the way up and down…

Speaking of Katsu Curry for a number of years now it has been a tradition for us to eat Katsu curry at Chozen Noodle at Norton Caines Services on the way to and from Blackpool. This years tradition was interrupted by the closure of the M6 Toll road but thankfully the equivalent services on the M6 came up trumps as they had just added Katsu Curry to their menu at the Canteen style food vendor which kept Nikki happy and cut out the need to queue at Burger King ๐Ÿ™‚

IT seems that Nikki has the best friends as, despite there being not photographic evidence of it, her Thesis writing carried on apace in the back of the hall. This prompted one of our friends Kirsty to go out and purchase her a pampering kit so that she can treat herself…

Mandatory Blackpool tower photo… Every year the society goes down to the beach to take a photo in front of the tower, this year the tide was right in so the photo was taken on the pavement alongside the beach, but it was too cold to stay out for much longer than it took to take the photo…

This week Pippa decided to #bangoutacarbeth and swatched for it (Zilly approved as he got a new scarf), cast on and knitted most of the jumper during the week. The one benefit of long coach journeys.

Some of Nikki’s lettering this week was very appropriate for the weekend:

    Just leaving a quick comment in case it doesn’t register again. How exciting to be dancing at Blackpool – well, that’s what they all say on Strictly isn’t it?

        Oooh yay! I have absolutely no idea what was wrong, but lets hope it’s gone!
        Yes, Blackpool is exciting but a little less spectacular this year as the winter gardens where we dance are having work done to the ceiling which means soooo much scaffolding and massive great towers in the way. But it was good fun. ๐Ÿ™‚
