Well, it's been a very busy couple of weeks and I feel absolutely shattered! Confession- I haven't danced or drummed for nearly a week and a half and that's a long time out of my normal schedule. I needed the time to just enjoy hanging out with my boys and family, (very proudly watched my middle brother graduate, entertained my young nephews and rocked out to the 'Prodigy' to name a few things.)
I also got the chance to see my good friend Lianna perform at Planet Egypt- so not completely dance free!? She was, of course, sensational and I enjoyed the night out more so as I'd never been to Planet Egypt before. A very upbeat atmosphere hosted by the delightful and charismatic Anne White, who ensured her guests and performers were well looked after and entertained. Also performing was the lovely Janet from Nottingham. I've only met her briefly at Derby a few months back, but she is a very memorable character and her dancing just brings ot the biggest grin in me! Actually, it was amazing the number of faces I recogonised as I really don't get out and about on 'the scene' much at all.
As for my own dancing, I got the chance to perform in Essex a couple of weeks ago. Despite a costume and music malfunction (although the costume was fine by the time I got on stage) it was another really lovely audience who fully appreciated the dancing and drumming, particulary from Hossam and Serena of course! I hope that won't be the last time we perform for the Essex dancers, especially as they are some of the most hospitaple people I've ever met (many thanks Jayne!)
