My next adventure is on the horizon..

After a long time planning, I’ve finally saved up and booked my place on a circus arts day experience! Right now I’m feeling a mix of excitement tinged with a hint of nervousness. Actually, quite a BIG hint of the nerves. The day will consist of juggling, tightrope walking and the trapeze! Will I fly through the air with the greatest of ease? I bloody hope so!

For someone who isn’t a fan of the high height life this is a big step for me. I can’t wait to try something new and meet new people though. I love the arts and have always been part of it, circus is a string to my bow I’ve never added. Until now!

Cirque du Soleil here I come? ummm, probably not.
