Sad but fun. My tag is [=NsL=]Doorman. If you can find them you can see my stats




Line Dancing

This was something that always appealled to the redneck in us. We first saw it at a pub/restraunt which had a western theme. We did nothing about it until one day a leaflet came through the door saying classes were starting in the village hall just round the corner. Off we went, got very enthusiastic, bought the boots etc. and have an enjoyable few months. The trouble is, there are as many dance routines as there are songs and our tired old brains couldn't cope with the continuous learning process. We gave it a good go though!

I know it doesn't look much fun but it was great while it lasted!





We went to a place called CentreParcs in Thetford for a weekend break, some while ago. If you don't know CentreParcs, they have all sorts of facilities under one roof.... literally! Well we tried all manner of things such as badminton and...other stuff I can't remember. One of the things I tried was fencing. I had always had a sneaky desire to take it up-something to do with Robin Hood in my youth I guess, probably why archery appealed as well!- Anyway, on our return home, I found the local club and jumped in with both feet. Once again I bought all the gear, foil, jacket, glove etc. etc. not to mention the books. I got to be....average. Not bad for an old 'un but it didn't take too long to realize that you need the reactions of a cobra to be any good. My reactions were more akin to a sloth!

Another hobby/sport bites the dust! My father despairs of me, he thinks you have one sport and pursue it all your life.





Water Aerobics

.I don't know where this one came from. One day the memsahib said 'I'm off to water aerobics', 'water aerobics' I said.'Yes, water aerobics' she said. so there you are! I think it's something to do with doing aerobics whilst in a swimming pool. Mmmm.






Now this was a good one. Pleasant evenings spent trying to knock coloured balls into various pockets, at the same time quaffing copious amounts of beer! What could be better? Tricky old game though, we never did get very good at it. Perhaps less beer and more practise would have made a difference.





Yoga is enjoying a renaissance at the moment and Arja has taken it up quite seriously. She's coming along famously and already can put both her legs behind her neck. I don't know what you think but it impresses the hell out of me!
