I've kinda abandoned my little blog recently but I have been busy.
A few weekends ago I went to the Acrobatic Convention in Edinburgh. A whole weekend of aerial and acrobalance as well as some other cool stuff to try out! We had people from all over, London, France, Iceland......it was AMAZING!
I did quite a bit of acrobalance and as I was one of the smallest I seemed to get passed around the various tall people to be lifted. Good fun but my poor little arms were bruised afterwards.
I also did some trapeze, silks, more chinese pole and some tightwire (and discovered I am definitely not a natural at walking on thin wire!)
However, one of my highlights of the weekend was Teeterboard! I'd never done it before but after having a taster I'd definitely do it again. Its basically a big see-saw. The flyer stands at one end and you have two people who run and jump on the other which sends you up in the air. Its quite tiring when your doing the runnng and jumping part but I really enjoyed it when it was my turn to fly- heres a little video of my somersault... YAY! ( i can't seem to turn it round so its on its side)

(a wee bit of Rachel's jelly fish in the background)
One of the girls had already started working on this bigger painting when I got there but as we were running out of time, I jumped in to finish it.

Her and her husband are acutally in the process of designing/building their own house at the moment and even the Grand Designs team have been out following it. They've got as far as the foundations and have built the beam structure of the house.
So of course we trapeze ladies couldn't resist having a wee climb!
And a wee bit of that internet phenomenon planking (even though its not a real plank!).... Two of the girls Lauren and Claire did a little bit of fire poi for us. I've tried normal poi and found it hard enough to keep them under control, never mind adding fie into the equation!
