Day 33: Rhapsody in Orange
Good evening 🙂
Guess what today’s activity was…welll yes…it was dancing…it is Wednesday…it is in fact Wicked Wacky Stick Wednesday 🙂 However today was a Morris practice with a difference, we spent this evening entertaining the general public I the quiet village of Maplehurst at the White Horse pub.
Small quite village it might be 99% of the time, but just occasionally the peace is shattered by a bunch of stick clashing, whooping, yelling jangling Border Morris dancers commonly known as Mythago. Tonight was one of those times. We descended on the place instead of out normal practice hall and, as we were in public we were in full kit and masks. AND…this was the very exciting bit for me…we got to wear coloured kit! So I looked like this:
I love my orange kit! It is so orange…and moves so well…it is so swishy 🙂 and exercise wise, the mask and about 50 tonnes of material on the kit, and the boots that weight 2kg each, all make all the aerobic dancing so much more…exercise-y
I did, Our Henry, King of the Fairies, Standing Stones, Avebury Ring, Maiden Castle, Fanny Frail, and possibly more that I have forgotten. It was lots and lots of fun and, have I mentioned that I love my orange kit 😀
Just in case, all the dancing was not enough…I decided to up my fitbit steps and activity points buy running up and down the garden a couple of times…to use up the extra energy 🙂
Day 33 Complete 😀 and completely orange!
