Christmas 2016

HAPPY CHRISTMAS from the Noakes family!

It may just be the three of us but the love and fun that we have in our family are felt with sincerity and gratefulness. It’s our first time to wear tacky Christmas jumpers and to be elves on Christmas day was so much fun. I love my family so much and I am so proud of them!

Hope you had a great day! WE DID!  Cheers everyone!  😀

 

Glitz and Glam FitSteps night…

Just having a little night of FUN celebrating one year at Brickhill Community Centre! Loads of my FitSteppers couldn’t make it as it’s half term break but in two classes that I’ve been doing (one evening and one morning), I’ve had over 40 people coming to my classes. I’ve made great friends and met amazig people. I have the nicest bunch ever! Here’s to another year of fun classes!  Cheers everyone!

FitSteps masterclass with Ian Waite…

It is always good to refresh your skills and go back to basics to be able to improve and be better. As a FitSteps instructor, it is essential for me to keep myself motivated and through attending masterclasses, I know that I will benefit even more to give what my FitSteppers deserve – the best of FitSteps.

It was such a fun day to meet Ian Waite once again, had a laugh, learned new moves, and got inspired even more as an instructor.

I would like to thank David Lloyd Milton Keynes for the wonderful time I’ve had.

FitSteps with Viv is running in Bedford  every Wednesday – 7:15pm and Friday – 9:30am, Brickhill Community Centre.

 

 

FitSteps at the Bedford River Festival 2016

Look at my FitSteppers now! They are performing people, performing!  Yes, and  infront of a big crowd after just a few months of doing FitSteps with me. We did a FiSteps dance demo at the Sports Village stage, and we were able to deliver the message we wanted to tell people about FitSteps and how amazing it is to dance. Wish all of my FitSteppers were on stage with us but I’m only allowed a few people to dance with me due to limited space on stage. What I love about my class is the mixture of levels/abilities/ages, and they just go for it. Some of them had background in dance, even a professional dancer, and others never danced at all, and it proved today that what matters most is that you are enjoying what you’re doing. That if you put your heart and focus into something you really love, you will shine in every way. To all my FitSteppers, THANK YOU! I am so PROUD of everyone, not just the ones who performed last week, yesterday and today, but EVERYONE who does my class! xxx

What an amazing weekend indeed!  Boiling hot, but brilliant!

A Touch of Class

Last Sunday, 8th May, I was able to see the touring show of Ian Waite and Natalie Lowe in Bedford, ‘An audience with Ian and Natalie – A Touch of Class’. I was with my FitSteps ladies and we had an absolute fun evening, meeting them personally again (since my training) and watching the show. They were amazing! Congratulations to Ian and Natalie!

 

Remembering our Wedding day…

9th March, 2000 – our church wedding day in Manila, Philippines. It was our second wedding actually as we got married in civil ceremony in London in July 1999. We really planned our wedding in Manila as my family and relatives were mostly there. My relatives and friends came all the way from USA, Germany, Canada, UK, Cebu, Pangasinan. It was indeed a grand reunion of people closest to our hearts. Garry’s brother, Bob, came from London. That’s his first time in Asia and he had a blast.

I remember flying to Philippines twice in three months whilst planning our church wedding. I even spent Christmas with my family there and had a brilliant time. I don’t know how I managed to put an international entourage. All my best friends from childhood who are now in America, to High School, to College, were there. Out priest was the brother of my High School bestfriend. It was so special. But I guess when you know you have found the right person you want to be with for the rest of your life, suddenly everything seems to be easy.

I was a beautiful bride, if I may say so. Ehem! Haha  My good friends made me look so beautiful in that beaded Indian silk gown, designed by my lovely friend. My make-up was just perfect as it wasn’t too dark, and it was very appropriate for a blooming bride.

My parents were still around during our wedding day. My dad passed away in 2003, three years after my wedding. My Mommy passed away in 2012. Mommy was able to visit us in the UK, when I was due to give birth. She was able to enjoy her granddaughter, who was born in 2002.

To my super loving husband who made me feel special all these years, I love you. I have no regrets after 16 years of being married to you. No one can ever replace you in my heart. Most of all, we were blessed with a beautiful daughter.

Happy 16th Wedding Anniversary, Garry!  ❤
