What a fabulous day we had! We took part in an official record breaking attempt, which was  for the most pirates ever in one place.
The current record was 1000 in Carolina USA, but the record got SMASHED here in Hastings. The official count was just over 6000!
And the town mayor got a certificate for the town from The Guiness Word Records as an official world record. It was such a good day with some fabulous costumes adults and kiddiwinks alike. We had just a pirate day last year with no record attempt. I think this event will take place annually now. Our town is such a wonderful place to live. We have great festivals like the Jack in the Green where all the bogeys and sweeps come togther. This week is old town week and it culminates tomorrow with the carnival.
The pirate day was on meridian tv news which can be seen here.

I'm Engaged!

Yes you read right, I'm engaged! This is the story behind the tattoo lol.
Colin was always asking me to marry him and was always saying no lol. So a couple of weeks back, knowing Colin hates tattoo's, I said to him, 'The day I'll marry you is the day you come home with a tattoo of my name on your arm!' So you can guess what he did............yup he got it done lol.

Last Friday we went to my best friends wedding and Colin was best man.

Colin and I........I don't like wearing dresses hence my expression lol.

Jayne and Olly

At the evening reception, Colin did his best man speech and then the little shit my beloved started talking about me. I knew right away what he was up to and  dived under the nearest table head first. The groom, Olly pulled me out by my ankles and put me in an arm lock lol, so I couldn't run away.

Colin proposing

Colin proposed to me complete with ring and asked me to marry him next year.........I called him a few choice names and said yes lol. At this point I was still sober lol. 

We had a fantastic time at the reception. Jayne changed out of her wedding dress and we rocked out with plastic  blow up guitars as she had a live guitar player/singer at her wedding Mick Mepham who is fabulous and has played with greats like Eric Clapton! If you haven't guessed, Jayne and Olly are bikers :)
Jayne and Me

As you can tell, Jayne and I don't act our 46   years of  age lol. We were the bestest friends at school and  somehow lost touch and she found me on Facebook. We are having a ball together and act just like school girls giggling all the time.
