Today I’ve written 3 lists- lost one, one went in the recycling bin ( prematurely ) and the third one has all the mundane stuff ticked off so now to the nice stuff , which means a large R&C and to write this old drivel, followed by roast dins and a steamed pud .
Well In the last twenty four hours I’ve gasped,strolled and celebrated …..
Gasped……. at the amazing international troupe of six circus/burlesque performers’ production ‘Limbo’ in The Speigeltent on The Southbank .One contortionist bent back so far over himself it was if he was going to snap in half . But the best act was three guys strapped to three tall poles positioned around the edge of the circular raised stage .Initially they swayed gently and as they built up momentum , the poles( and them ) were bent over about 90 degrees , so at times they were on top of the audience .It was breathtakingly brilliant and original .We’ve never seen anything like that before.
Strolled……through the beautiful blanket of bluebells in Kew Gardens
Celebrated … our wonderful son, Jacob’s 25th Birthday , even though he is 273 miles ( if you take the coast road ) away.
