London Bridge and the Paso Doble

Did everyone have a fun Halloween? Have a look here to see what we got up to.

Anyway, a few weeks ago my husband twisted his foot and damaging some ligaments while getting out of bed. The poor guy was in a lot of pain, but I couldn’t help laughing. I’m such a bad wife. Hee Hee Hee…..I did make it up by driving him to hospital and pushing him around in a wheelchair. He was on crutches for a week and half, but he can walk (very slowly) now.

Last week hubs wanted to rest and some peace and quiet so I took our Rascal on a bus trip to London Bridge. It may appear to be place for business people and tourist, but there are many things for children to do there. We went to the the Fashion and Textile Museum first which is the bright pink and orange building along Bermondsey Street. There we saw the Foael and Tuffin made in England exhibition.
Don’t you love the swinging 60s. I recognised a few clothes that were similar to what my Mum use to wear. We also so some cool fabrics, knitting accessories and sketch books:

They also have knitting workshops there too, but they are quite expensive.

We then popped over to More London, Hayes Galleria (see photo below) and the Unicorn Theatre, which is a theatre specifically for children. The model of the unicorn by the entrance is amazing. We didn’t buy any tickets to see a show, but will definitely do so one day as it is so close to where we live.

A short update from my ballroom dance class: we learnt the basic steps of the Paso Doble. It is such and dramatic dance and a bit embarrassing to do…..Hee Hee Hee……but I think my dance partner and I made a good first attempt.

and no, he didn’t drag me across the floor like John Sergent……so funny….photo from Strictly Come Dancing

I don’t believe that we have covered the basic steps of the five ballroom dances; Slow Waltz, Foxtrot, Quick Step Viennese Waltz, Tango and the five Latin dances; Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, Jive and Paso Doble. We have a break from dancing next week and then we will be adding more footwork/steps to the dances…..I can’t wait!
