Sports Day and Jive - The Oddest Combination?

I've been a bit off colour for a long while, but it feels like things are finally starting to get back on track. People are coming up to me in the street more, my friends are ringing me more and I'm wearing more colour again, yippee!

Yesterday was one of those days where everyone invited me to something! I went out for coffee with one of my flatmates then spent the afternoon at Miss R's retro Sports Day and then I went Jiving in the evening with R & N. When I say jiving I really mean out to dinner and then having a chat out on the terrace with the occasional dance but you know what I mean! I'm starting to really enjoy dancing again, and not just dancing but all the socialising and meeting new people that comes with it. Life feels a bit more joyful which is a relief.

People start warming up for the events:



We start the actual relay:




And we have some winners! The housemates have won! 

After that everyone else stayed on to play Rounders while four of us went to the house to set up for the bbq. I have no idea why but Miss R thought it would be a good thing to put Marisca and I in charge of the crisps - I'm surprised there were any left.

I went early to go and meet R & N so we could go over to Margate. We went out for dinner at Roost - it's pretty easy going chicken n' chips place but their macaroni cheese is amazing, as it the Asian style slaw.

And then we rolled ourselves down the hill to Morgans for a dance. I spent a lot of the evening on the balcony chatting with people, it was lovely to catch up with a few familiar faces and get to know some new ones. I did get a few jives in though and even a Charleston.
