Circo Kernow Students 2011



We've been blown away by Hugo & Co...

                                           
They've been studying circus performance skills for only 1 or 2 sessions over 10 weeks...
And we've picked out a selection of the best photos...
         
The group are mainly aged between 14 & 18...
And they also learned how to put up the big top & prepare for a show.


They each tried all the activities & discovered what they prefer to do...

We've known some of the kids for a while, so it was great to see what they have achieved...

Even those we didn't know still managed to amaze us...

The group have also learnt Makulele...

And Capoeira...

Which was fun to watch...



Hugo's chosen skill was mime...


                                          
We were surprised by his confidence & of course we had no idea what to expect...

                                        
But we have been very impressed!

With all of them...

Rowan is 14...

And these 2 were wonderful...

Jake is climbing down the rope...

Just stunning...

Amazing...

And brilliant!

Emma was also the girl on the silk rope...

                                           
The Hula Hoop girls wowed us all!

Then the finale...

And taking a bow...

You can see the group performing in the middle of Truro, where they appeared as statues to advertise their show. 

Enjoy!

Looks it was a fun evening for the audience and the performers. I liked Hugo's costume, he really looked the part.

Thank you all!

Hugo's had a wonderful time at the circus school. He's quite keen continuing with mime & statue work...

Watch this space!

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday. When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 
We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out... We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!
I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago...  Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!
We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on …
