What a weekend!

I am shattered but happy!!!! Had the most amazing weekend in Blackpool. Sorry for all the photos today but these are a few of my faves!!!!
Having only danced for a year and having never been in this comp before I had no expectations. The competition is tough and involves schools from the whole of the UK but I did much better than I thought I would!
And its all down this lovely fella above!!! My very kind and patient dance teach Tim! He is a star!!
This is my ballroom dress which I wore for Waltz and Quickstep. I had to dance with Greg (below) for the Waltz and had never danced with him before (which freaked me out a bit) but he got me a recall and into the Quarter Final. Sadly I didnt get any further than that but Waltz wasnt my strongest dance so I was really pleased!

He we are just about to start the routine

When I got the Quarter Final I decided to dance with Tim as he was now available as I was the only one from our school to get through.

My favourite dance is the Jive, just love it! Jill and Darren's jive in Series Two of Strictly is still my all time favourite Strictly dance!!! Here I am pretending that I am Jill Halfpenny!!!!!!!!

I was so amazed becuase I got through to the Semi Final in the Jive which meant I was in at least the Top 12 in the UK!!!! Wooo HOOOOOOO So pleased, just wished I could have got to the final!! Maybe next time!!

And here I am with my dance partner Pete. We danced the Quickstep and the Cha cha cha together but we had a couple of hiccups so didnt get any recalls! Still we had loads of fun and I was so pleased with how my solo rounds went
Thank you to everyone who sent me emails, texts, facebook messages and send good vibes!!! You are so supportive. Especially my lovely friend Jane who came with me for the weekend and fetched and carried for me all the time. COuldnt have done it without her! xxx
