When we went to see the Wickerman burning last month, there were numerous other activities for kids to take part in. From creepy story-telling around a fire in the iron age roundhouse, to seeing what life was like in a Roman encampment ..... and Poi!
Poi is the art of fireball spinning. There was a Poi workshop and the kids loved it! Obviously, they weren't using real fireballs though!
Beginners use sock-type things, made from a non-stretchy fabric, with weighted balls down at the 'toe' end. Then, you just spin them! There are loads of moves to learn and the kids spent the best part of an hour there.
So, for my SOS today, here's Kali in mid-spin!
I'm cooking (don't fall down with shock - although I hate cooking, I have to do it occasionally!) a beef stew for supper tonight. Tim is away taking some of his students on a field trip today and won't be home till after 7.00pm tonight. It's freezing cold and I know he'll be hungry, so I'm doing tatties, cabbage and also making dumplings too! It's his favourite - and one of mine too! I'm cooking the beef on the hob at a very low temperature and the aroma is just wonderful, even though I say it myself. By the time he gets home, it will be as tender, as tender can be!
I wonder who will be voted out of Strictly tonight. By rights, it should be John Sergeant. I think he's lovely and it great entertainment, but there really are much more committed and talented celebs and it's a bit of a shame if one of those gets voted off instead.
Oh, and did you see Cherie's legs last night? Wow, wow and thrice I say, wow! She's in incredible shape ..... not only for HER age, but for any age!
