This summer I had the opportunity to perform at a wedding at The Eden Project.  It may not sound much to some but to me, having grown up in Cornwall and just discovered circus when the project opened (2001), my first thought when we went there that first time was ‘what...

I turned up to yoga class this evening not knowing what I was about to let myself in for.  Our instructor, Keren, was talking about summer solstice and then explained that as it was the solstice, we would be joining in with the tradition of performing 108 sun salutatio...

Every year my partner and I go travelling.  We set off at the end of January and disappear somewhere hot for seven weeks, returning in mid-March when Spring is on its way.

I’d hardly had chance to recover from my Kuwait trip (see previous blog below) when I was off on my travels again, this time to Beirut! Except that I almost wasn’t…

Jessie and I were heading off to Beirut for two days performing our roller skating act at a street festiv...

Note to the great weather organiser in the sky.  Can you send some more of that fabulous sunny, warm stuff you so kindly provided last month, please?  Especially for me and a hardworking group of fellow performers? 

Remember that heatwave last month?  Hottest...
