We had a lovely visit to Oxford for this year’s Mabel Day, and spent most of our time dancing in various pubs with the splendid Birmingham Rapper.
True to form, and contrary to any silly reputation we might have, we broke literally no light fittings whatsoever in any room we danced in.
There is a rumour (and indeed strong evidence) that a light in a room directly beneath us broke QUITE COINCIDENTALLY whilst we were dancing, but the connection is tenuous at best. As we all know, correlation does not imply causation.
We have only a few things left this year, including the Bradford on Avon carols (listening, not dancing), then a ceilidh down in Hampshire, a day in Bristol and, very best of all, a trip to Bridgnorth to dance with the wonderful Shropshire Sharpshins. We can hardly wait!
In the meantime, please forgive us the woeful lack of updates here. We’ve been busy with two things:
- Prep for our AGM next week; and
- Working on a new dance. Shh! It’s secret.
The AGM next week means there will be no practice. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
