Robin of Sherwood one day convention -The Sheriff of Nottingham -episode

Last weekend I went to the Robin of Sherwood one day event (although a bit late).

It is an honour and a privillage to be this geeky, as I met my RoS family that I have known since 2014.

On display were the original costumes from the series that the cast members wore. The last time I saw them was in Nottingham on 1985 when the cast came to Sherwood Forest to promote the third series with Jason Connery as the new Robin.

It was such a delight and I thank James Deval for rescuing them.

As expected the Hooded Man Events are put together by Barnaby Eaton-Jones who was able to get Nikolas Grace ( The Sherriff of Nottingham), Mark Ryan (Nasir), Valentine Pelka (Sarak) and Clive Mantle (Little John) with a new cast member Carla Medonca, who plays a witvh hunter in the audios that are available.

Jason Connery sent us a message as he was not able to attend

It was a great day out and I can’t wait for Hooded Man event 2020.

Will keep you posted.

Blessed be.

Happy 35th birthday to Robin of Sherwood.

Today was the first time Robin of Sherwood aries and unknown to me it is still as exciting to watch as is was back in 1984.

I have and still follow the cast members. Next month there is a one day meeting focusing on ‘ The Sheriff of Nottingham’ episode. Mark Ryan, Clive Mantle and other cast member will be attending.

Bleases be.

2018 round-up

Well it’s been a mixed year. Had the Robin of Sherwood Convention in May then a meet up with Michael Praed in July.

Saw Deacon Blue, The Christians, Level 42, and other 80’s band this year. Many more to come in 2019.

Have applied to be a volunteer at Tokyo 2020 Games. Loved doing the London 2012 Games.

Happy New Year to you all.

 

July happenings.

Went to see Del Amitri on my own as usual. It was a great hug and even though I stood up, from the start, got a light shined on my do sit down, I kept standing up and not bothering who didn’t like it.

Was a bit disappointed that Justin didn’t come out to meet his fans, but the rest of the band did.

That’s will ALWAYS be the debate about standing up and no one can see at gigs/concerts, but as long as I can keep doing it, I will keep ‘freaking out’ at my favourite gigs.

It was also my youngests last day at Primary school and at a childcare centre he had been at since he was six months old.

It was very emotional and I cried alot. I was a party id the community and the school and I loved the whole experience of school as a parent, like I loved school when I was a child/ young person.

Now on to new

pastures.

The end of an era.

When I arrived back in the U.K., My daughter was nearly three and my son was three /four months in my belly.

This week he will start secondary school and the in thing to do is to give the teachers a card/present as a thank you.

The U.K. has changed when I left back in the early ’90’s, and it’s expensive nowadays, we have some what we did when his sister left primary school/childcare, made our own cards.

Hubby made the Samurai hat’s and Kimono’s.

It must be unique thing to do but I like being unusal and it sums up the family.

The postcards are from my Japanese clay making friend Ryouchi Minagawa and his wife who I met while working in Niigata teaching their daughter English.

New challenges.

Well, I drive myself to Liverpool for the first time. I have only driven on the motorway about five times since I passed my test at twenty-one years old.

I went to see Henry Priestman (Yachts and The Christians fame). He was showcasing his forty years in the music business and his solo stuff. I have been a big fan of him for thirty of his forty years.

I also did an Inflatable 5k. It was a group of us mum’s and teenage children.

It was a very hot day. The course was in a horse race track. The ground was very bumpy and hurt my feet. I walk around it with another lady.

The obstacles were very hot to touch and as I have had knees, very tricky to do them.

Afree an hour I got to the end and tried to do the ‘Leap of faith’ but bottled it. I did the slide dtop, instead.

Can’t wait to do it again.
