Kids’ Disco Party

At the Medway School of Dancing; Tonbridge High Street; Kent. It’s my daughter Jude’s 7th birthday today!! On Saturday she had her disco dance birthday party with all her friends and this is what I thought of it.

It’s that time of year again and my daughter’s 7th birthday party took place on Saturday, with all the girls from her class invited to come along. Jude absolutely loves dancing; and she’s far too good at wiggling her bum in time to music! Everyone’s party seems to be at The Angel Centre lately, so I thought I’d look for something different. Some of the prices quoted for a Dance party were ridiculous; so this seemed the best value at £120. Still more than I hoped to pay, but at least it covered the whole 2 hours party, and the venue too.

It was run by a lady called Lisa, and was helped by a younger girl, (I’m sorry, I can’t remember her name) and they seemed very nice and did the party really well. There was a DJ type booth in the corner of the room where they controlled all the music – slowing it down a bit so that the younger girls could keep up. Lisa did a few games; musical statues and things like that, and also a couple of dance routines and a dance competition.

The kids loved it and I think the party was a big success. Between each game the kids had chance to run around and let off some steam, which was a good idea, but occasionally those gaps went on a bit too long. The only other complaints are that the hall is right at the top of 3 flights of stairs, so the grandparents aren’t going to be keen on that; nor the music which was pretty loud! Also, a man who seemed to be running the dance school, stood and had a cigarette in the bar area in the corner of the room, which I wasn’t too happy about. I didn’t want the kids to go home smelling of smoke; but he didn’t stay so that was ok. The kitchen bit was miniscule and filthy, so make sure all your food is prepared beforehand. And warn your child that she may not win the dancing competition. There were 2 prizes, and I was surprised that the birthday girl didn’t get one of them.

On the whole, I would recommend this party. There doesn’t seem to be a great deal of choice of affordable parties in this area, (unless you’re going to the Angel Centre) and when I was looking around, I found people who charged more than this and then you still had to hire a venue. This turned out to be a good choice. Jude had a great time, and that’s the most important thing.

UK,

3 days in new york – Day 1. The story of the photographs
February 10, 2017
Oh dear, I had trouble narrowing down the number of photos of New York to include to make it a reasonable length blog post! We did a hell of a lot each day, so I had to include enough to illustrate that, and I managed to get it down to fifteen photos, which I thoroughly enjoyed preparing. By the way, I should explain that this is the first post about the epic holiday our family went on last July. (I’ve had so many blog post ideas that it’s taken me this long to get to it!) I’ve decided that pictures speak a thousand words, so these are mainly going to be photography based travel blog posts, rather than tonnes of information provided. However, if you’d like more information about anything I mention, please just ask in the comments – I’ve got a box full of leaflets and tickets and a detailed diary to refer to.
Muchelney Abbey, Somerset – the story of the photographs
February 26, 2017
Last July my parents came to stay for a few days and as they are recent members of English Heritage, we looked around for local attractions near me in Somerset. Muchleney Abbey is (unsurprisingly) in the village of Muchelney on the Somerset levels with the nearest town being Langport. It’s in a beautiful peaceful spot, and the perfect location for a picnic, but as we didn’t come prepared, we bought ice creams from the little shop there, and then found a cute place for afternoon tea further down the road afterwards. Although the south cloister is still intact, sadly as usual, Henry VIII is to blame for the ruined state of the rest of the abbey. It is the Tudor Abbott’s house that can be explored properly….

It’s fun to see the second team of fence builders have started on the opposite side of the Glastonbury Festival site this morning – it amazes me how they manage to make it meet – I suppose they must stop at an entrance gate. Anyway, I’m a bit embarrassed to confess that the tall tower in my Instagram Story yesterday, I think is just an electricity pylon that’s always there! It just looked different from a different angle and in the evening sunlight! The scaffolding construction though is definitely new….
