Day 243: It is official…morris dancing cures colds (at least for a while)
Ok…that is probably not actually true…
I can’t guarantee that if you have a cold, and you go morris dancing, the cold will go away…
But I can tell you that when I got to practice and started dancing, I genuinely felt like I was better…no cough, no cold, no dizziness 😀
It was an awesome practice!
apart from making me feel better, I got to dance 15 whole dances, I did a couple of well known (to me) dances in brand new places with no walk throughs and no mistake and only a tiny little bit of new place panic which went away once I got started!The other remarkable thing that happened was we built a cage out of sticks and locked Dan in for being too fit and energetic…
no we didn’t do that, that would be mean!
What we did was build a gauge in the practice hall to measure our sticks and check they are regulation length.
Ok…No we didn’t do that either.
What actually happened was I stuck my stick in the hatch through from the kitchen…and it happened to be the same height as the opening…
seee….that wouldn’t have made as good a story if I had just said that in the first place…so there :-p
anyway…despite being ill…and thinking I might not make much dancing happen…I (as I have mentioned) did 15 whole dances (and a couple of walks and a half dance…yes a half dance is a thing…) and these were:
Maiden Castle, Sticky dance (aka Awakening) x 4, Standing Stones, Our Henry x 2, Taggle Taggle Gypsy x2, Parma Ham x 2, Summerland, Foul mouth cat, Fanny Frail 😀
Wooohooo 15 dance…this is a record!
I am without a doubt fitter than I was… 😀
Day 243 Complete 😀
