Blaenavon Light Switch On

Yesterday, Jessica, Marianna and I braved the sub arctic weather conditions and headed up to the north end of the borough to Blaenavon to switch on the towns Christmas Lights and sing a couple of carols.

The Usual Suspects

Long Ass Day

So today I have (whilst recovering from last nights Christmas party) attended the opening of a new tanning salon, taken the Mini Mayor to meet Father Christmas at Pontypool Market, attended the opening of a new art exhibit at Pontypool Museum all before taking part in the Christmas parade and light switch on in the town. I then had enough time to watch some of the rugby before heading back out to see Cwmbran Baroque Choir.

Depression Day

Today I had to go to a funeral, which is one of the more onerous of mayoral duties, but is part of the job, but whilst en route to the crematorium I realised its a year to the day since my younger brother died at age 19, so needless to say I am feeling a little low now, so wont be engaging in my usual flair ridden prose today.

And remember that if you do ever need anyone to talk to, I don’t pretend to be a crisis counsellor, and I will make inappropriate jokes, but I am there.
