Mountain Ash 20th April 2012

We met up at the local pub, Adam and Mike had been there since 2:30 and were all smiles.

We were on our way to Mountain Ash to play a DJ set. So we got in a Dragon taxi!
Mike decided he would rather go to a sixteen year old girl's birthday party so he stayed in the Port.

There was a case of beer in the taxi and Adam told us lurid stories about himself all the way to the Mountain.

We got there safe and sound!

We were greeted by Tony and Dave who had a suspicious looking package for us.
It turned out to be chip butties. Secretly this made us very happy.
Tony the Landlord had also laid on an impressive array of party food so Adam was well happy.
So we went downstairs to the pub and they were having a raffle and it was in full swing, a young boy had just won a box of Forrero Rocher and he was jubilant. 
The Raffle was well good and had loads of music related prizes.
We didn't win anything, even though we spent six quid on tickets.
After the raffle which raised over 700 quid for NNPCC, we got on the decks and played all that music and all that.
The crowd were having such a good time they started to undress.
Apparently this is a common occurrence in Mountain Ash on the weekends.
The party was in full swing.
So we decided to have a cash prize for the best dancer.
People were going nuts for it, someone even tried to breakdance. I have since found out he is fine and got out of hospital last night with only minor lacerations and second degree carpet burns.
The crowd were loving the booze too, this girl was very thirsty.

We ended the night on a high to Whitney Houston's "Saving All My Love", which prompted one man to proclaim his undying love for another and propose. 
Apparently they had a shot gun wedding that weekend and are now on honeymoon in the popular honeymoon resort of Abersychan.

Then it was time to say good bye.
Dave got in the taxi and we dropped him off on the way home, where I had a long conversation with one of his wife's friends about how I had been disappointed by the film "Finding Eric", which her husband had apparently produced.
It was another great night in Mountain Ash!

Sport Relief March 25th 2012

Billy and I turned up bright and early to do the Sport relief Mile. 
We had even dressed appropriately.

We went into a special tent and were given bags with T shirts and bits of paper with our names on them.

This is Mel Walters, she got us involved in Sport Relief. 
She was on Gavin and Stacey (I still haven't watched it) and she is well safe!
 They were sending the runners off in waves every hour, I think we were running in the third wave.
Adam Hussain turned up fashionably late as usual.

He had some trouble getting his look together so he asked Danny to help him out.
Then it was time to limber up as we were going to start in two minutes.
Wynne Evans was running too, he is one of the nicest dudes in the world (he does the Go Compare adverts).
Mel had the horn and got ready to blow it and start the race.

Adam made some friends. 
This guy was in an ill fitting mankini. I was unlucky enough to see him fall out of the side of it too, it looked like road kill and I can still see it if I close my eyes. It will haunt me forever.
 Then Adam, me and Billy.
 And we went to the starting line for the off.
There was about 35,000 people behind us all ready to run either one, three or six miles.
 And then we were off. 
Adam and Billy were doing the three mile run.

And so was I.

Until I saw this, it's not a castle it's a pub, and it was half way round the circuit.

So, feeling a little warm, I thought better take on some fluids.

 I could feel my hamstrings pulling up as well so I sat outside for a while to drink the fluids. 
I saw Adam as he went round for the second time.
There were some awesome people doing the run but I think this guy might just have been lost. 

 Adam came round for the last time and I joined him for a sprint finish which I won.
Then Billy came in just after.

Billy was felling the burn. 
We were all winners and it had been an amazing buzz to be part of such an awesome day.

We went back to the tent and they had put a spread on. Happy days.
Massive thanks to Sport Relief and all who organised and took part.
See you next time and P.S. don't put a pub on the route next time.
