Oh Boy!!!!! What a Month! This one has been crammed full of Derby goodness with me right in the middle of it lapping every second up. Sometimes I do feel like my everyday life is no longer separate from my Derby life as it’s being gradually sucked into a big Derby sponge! Sometimes I need to squeeze that sponge out though and take a step back as it’s easy to suddenly wake up and realise you haven’t seen non Derby related friends for ages, or worn anything other than Dri-fit and team colours!
I had the perfect opportunity to change this one Sunday at the end of April. I was carrying on as usual when I was introduced to the possibility of being in a music video which was being shot locally! The band, The Computers, were taking over a … Read More »
Hard to start a blog when it’s so Sunny outside! I have been massively sidetracked with important stuff and some not so important stuff today, but thought I would just start typing and see where it goes!
I guess one of the biggest things since we spoke last was that my team S.W.A.T (South West Angels Of Terror) played in and won the final of The South West League.
Wiltshire, Dorset, Plymouth, Kernow and us have been playing against each other in double header bouts since October last year to see who would be crowned the best team in The South West League, for the years 12/13. So far we hadn’t lost a game, so spirits were high and on 6th April this year we took the title and the lovely trophy that had been made to mark the occasion!

Last Weekend was magic! In fact the whole week was a whirl of fast paced Derby goodness with a humongous chunk of PR frivolity chucked in!
Are we sitting comfortably? Then I will begin:..It started when we had a very special phone call at SWAT headquarters from non other than The Sun newspaper ! We had been chosen (thanks to some help from Roller Derby UK) to feature in a double page spread about the sport we all love! Football, I mean ROLLER DERBY!!!!!
What an honor! Now we knew we’d been working hard on and off the track, but to be noticed by a national paper wasn’t something that happens every day!

Sometimes you have to just start! – My first blog for a while, but it’s crammed with lots of Roller Derby goodness!
Well I didn’t think that would happen!
Writers block, laziness, busyness, business, not knowing what to say, knowing what to say and not wanting to? For whatever reason my blog history now has a massive gaping hole in it!
This is my first blog since January.
I’ve started to write it in my head many times but never put fingers to keys and actually done it! So much has happened, almost too much and I think that has actually stopped me writing it as the enormity of the task, how to cram it all in, just got too big! The thing is, for you the readers, reading a novel of a blog would have been as much of a chore as me writing it so today, I’ve just got myself into gear and just started typing! What will be will be (and hopefully … Read More »
