Aberystwyth Silver Band 1

Bands, Brunches and Bank Holidays

2 Day Weeks Another weekend has gone and this one was a Bank Holiday Weekend – Although I’d kind of forgotten that as they all seem to roll into one these days. I also work from home on Mondays and Tuesdays every week so Bank Holiday Mondays don’t mean much to me. The weekend was action...

Brass Extravaganza review

What a day! I spent most of Saturday at the Brass Extravaganza in Aberystwyth.  This has been a few months in planning and a lot of hard work behind the scenes but the day was finally here and fingers crossed “touch wood” everything would run smoothly. Youth Competition The Brass Extravaganza started off with a Youth...

Strawberry Fayre, Aberystwyth

It’s been a busy few days here with no time to blog, but don’t worry, I’ll catch you up soon. We did manage to sneak out for an hour or so to the Strawberry Fayre in Aberystwyth though. The Aberystwyth Silver Band, and therefore Anna, were playing at it, so we went along to it as...

Aber Cycle Fest, Hotdogs on the Beach and a Xmas Dinner

Friday was a busy one for us as usual. A 75 minute, fairly tough turbo trainer session first thing for me (after an hour or so of work). Today’s session was Mount Hope -2 from TrainerRoad which consisted of 4x 10 minute threshold intervals. One just below threshold, one at threshold, one just above threshold...

St Brieuc Twinning Tour with Aberystwyth Silver Band – Day 3

Another early start in St Brieuc for me with an early morning run into Langueux and some rummaging around for a geocache. I couldn’t find the first one so had to run a little further to find a different one, but had success in the end as dawn broke in St Briuec. It was then...

St Brieuc Twinning Tour with Aberystwyth Silver Band – Day 2

After packing in so much stuff yesterday, it was hard to believe that this was only Day 2 of the Aberystwyth Silver Bands twinning tour to St Brieuc, but day two it was. The planned walk around St Brieuc had howver been cancelled as everyone eas tired, everyone needed a bit of a rest and...

A Summer Hiatus – Silver Bands and Broadband

I’m hoping that isn’t the end of summer but yesterday’s evening swim was definitely less summery than of late and it’s raining again this morning. I even had to put a jacket on after my swim in Aberystwyth last night as it was getting quite chilly and we had to put the headlights on during the drive home...
