The One About The Dance Hall.....

Well we've been going to Salsa class ever since we met, (it was our second date in fact - more about that in a mo), and we've just found out that the dance hall has been taken over and the class might have to stop running.  I know we've been having issues recently about whether we actually we want to go (just generally being stressed, or not bothered - which is awful!), but I don't like that the decision might be taken away from us.  And today, while we were there we had a really good time. Yes I kept spinning the wrong way, and yes it was complicated at the start catching up on three weeks of missed lesson moves, but do you know what, we giggled and smiled and just relaxed and had fun.  Which at the moment we both need.


Thursday night has been our traditional date night for the last 21 months or so.  My OH chose the first date and what we did, and then said I could choose the second date, whatever I wanted he would try anything! So I tried soooo hard to think up something interesting and unusual, it didn't really work though, all I could come up with was bowling (which I felt was a bit too boring) or ice skating (which is much better but the rink wasn't open on Thursday, which is the day we had decided to next meet).  So I was struggling.  But my friend at work said why not try Salsa, so I got on the internet and found a class not too far away for beginners.  And we had a really fab time, and decided to go again the following week.  Now, we can actually hold our own on the dance floor!  So it would be a shame for the hall to close, because after a really tough day at work it always cheers me up!

Finally, I want to say a proper hello to a new friend Jayne, in blogland who read one of my posts last week, then commented on her own blog here about what I had to say about Eddie spotting! I was so pleased and surprised to see some of my ramblings inspiring someone elses writing, especially as this week I've been struggling to know what to write on the blog using the prompts from Shimelle's class.  So thanks Jayne for giving me the push to keep going :)

I like how you title your blogs - reminds me of the TV show Friends, which was one of my all time favorites! Have a great weekend.
