What Wegan Did Next: 19/07/10-13/08/10
Wegan Monday, 16 August 2010
Tomorrow marks a week since Whitney left... can you believe it?! I can't.. she can't! It's insane. On the one hand it almost feels like she was never here, like it was a dream. & on the other hand I'm finding it really hard to adjust to her not being here... Is a strange balance! She feels the same too. We already can't wait to see each other next (whenever that may be!!!) Gawd damn us bringing on emotional suicide for being together for the summer & now got until May apart to go!!! But we'll get there & it''ll be Wegan forever... Right? So WAY overdue, here's what we got up to in our last month together. (By the way, this will be the first post to introduce you to some other faces in our lives!)
What Wegan Did Next:
(Disclaimer: this is a picture showing the castle on a nice day haha, I am not a bird!)
When I last blogged, we were about to go to Caerphilly Castle. Well trust us to pick the ONE day it absolutely POURED it down... but onwards to the castle we went getting soaked lol! The castle still looked amazing despite the horrid weather. We still had a great time looking around.. especially as we hope to get married there one day! We definitely want a castle wedding here... & beach wedding in Hawaii (if/when it's legal!)
Next we ventured off to London for a whistle stop day. Managed to squeeze in a trip to the bar/restaurant we first met at (& return to every day) where we had lunch, we then went to Covent Garden (Whit's first time) & met up with my friend Raj (www.electroqueer.com). All three of us then took a walk to Soho (where Whit hilariously stated "so Soho is very gay friendly huh?!"... LOL! "IT IS GAY!") We tried gelato from 'Gelupo', a new place in soho run by gay men (I believe), was very nice! We THEN went for a quick trip to Trafalgar Square & had to literally run for the train home! lol. In true Wegan style!!!
It was my sister's graduation party that night & it was a really good night with friends, old & new, & family. That same weekend we managed to squeeze in a visit with our fav lesbian couple Emita (guess their names?! haha).
My sister hand made 'graduation hats' for all the graduates at the party- introducing my sister (left) & best friend who's now a qualified Doctor! ;)
One of the most RANDOM Wegan experiences was when my father decided it'd be a great idea to go visit a 'Secret Nuclear Bunker' (the fact they have signs pointing to a 'secret' place cracked me up...) Anyways, clearly no longer secret it's open to the public to look around. From the moment we arrived we just KNEW it's be horrendous- & it was worse than our expectations. Honestly the worst exhibition I have EVER attended in my life. It's really poorly done & really frigging scary (in a bad way). My mother, Whit & I got into hysterics many a times & was rounded off by a man working there (who had a dog following him) telling us to pay or he'd "break our knee caps" (how funny... not.)... oh & did I mention we lost my father who turned out who had already left the exhibition.. WITH the money?!! Dad still tried to pretend it was great. But we all know it clearly wasn't!
We had a Jimon filled weekend, with drinks one night followed by a road trip the Gower (that went on forever as we didn't actually know how far away it was haha). It was a really nice day with a beautiful beach (Rhossili beach is apparently the best beach in the UK).
We also had another road trip with my aunt to 'the Valleys' to visit my Welsh relatives, mainly for Whit to meet my Grandad which was so cute! Had a really good day!
Before Whit left we made sure she had a leaving dinner (her fav restaurant, Nando's!!) followed by drinks, was a rather amusing night to say the least which consisted of drag queens & having to leave a bar early due to the police shutting it down, ooh err!
On our last weekend we decided to have a special 'date night' which consisted of rose sparkling wine, strawberries & chocolate fondu followed by me surprising Whit with a candle lit bath! She was so shocked, it was a beyond precious moment!! <3
Other than the above events, we mainly chillaxed at my place when I wasn't at work, oh & we took many visits to our fav coffee place- Coffee#1! (Who also do great Welsh cakes!) Finally the day sadly came for Whitney to return to America (nOOoOOoOOoOooO!!!)
This is the last Wegan pic of Summer 2010 (yer we look like poo, it was like 5am!) you can see the sadness in our eyes :(
