Send in the clowns……watch this space…….

Wow the days have flown by without me noticing since my last post.
Well, aside from everything I’ve had a lot of things to think about, this blog included, but I’ve decided to just keep being *me* and not tailor to an audience, friends and familly or not, Im not gonna give in an let that influence what I put here. I think when I saw the amount of hits it had got, I got a little shocked, but, If people wanna read it, then thats ok, if it wasnt, I’d be writing in a diary-on paper.
I hope you had a great one babe, and I’m sending ya a huge huge net-hug )))))))))C(((((((((   ;0)
well, Wednesday, saw me at the circus. Great show. Saw a clown there I remembered from last year, nice guy, what struck me most was how “traditional” he was and how well that worked with an modern audience.

Its interesting when you look into it really, the “art” of “Clowning”,……… some of these guys come from famillies with generations of history in the circus as clowns.
This guy for instance is a 7th generation clown, also a highwire artist and is indeed, a world record holder.

I used to speak on front of lots and lots of groups and audiences. I remember how nerve-wrecking that alone was.

I consider myself VERY lucky I never had to keep them entertained or make the laugh!
I would have died a death in seconds methinks.
Damned hard job made look very easy I would think.
I suppose thats why we never think about it as difficult, it looks so easy, but only if its done properly, one slip-up from a not-so-great clown, and I’d imagine you would immediately see the difficulty involved.
Yesterday, we spent at Dublin Zoo, wonderful day was had by all, Noah got some great photo opp’s and we got to spend the day with those we love. So much fun. :0))
Today, we spent in my mothers with my sister Karen, and eventually my other sister Elaine (Liams mom), the little guy himself, and my father.
Good day, bit tiring but worth it, an god that kids growing fast! Its amazing seeing him now almost walking!!

Anyways, Im gonna go an spend the rest of the night watching cheesy british comedy and drinking coca-cola and eating things I shouldnt (thinks of choc bar smuggled from mothers house in bag) >:o)

  2. It may be stuff we *shouldn’t* eat… but if loving Cadbury is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
