A fresh start

So where are all those posts about Worthing then?  They’re all here (taps noggin), but I’ve been a bit busy IRL lately and didn’t want to rant/cry/bore everyone.  It’s time for a fresh start I think. We’re in (its lovely), and we love Worthing, but it was a little bit bumpy along the way (school stuff and change – I’ve bored myself with it all now, and can’t think about it any more).

My girls love the circus. Being an Ariel performer is one of the many things B plans to be as an adult, despite the fact that she’s very much not a performer. K loves the greasepaint and glitter and performing is her natural habitat. So when I found a holiday workshop learning circus skills, in a real theatre, on the actual pier, they both begged to go. This is unlike my kids. I was keen because I suspected they would love it but also I thought it would be creative and physical and a great opportunity to meet other children...
