Many of you know I took up bellydancing around four months ago. It all started when I saw a group of ladies performing at a local summer fair. All shapes, sizes, ages and abilities. I loved the music, the attitude, the costumes…I just had to sign myself up for classes and now my best friend, Mandy has joined, too!
The company who run the classes regularly put on shows and the latest one was a massive showcase at the Fairfield Halls Theatre in Croydon. This was my first perfermance with them and I had an absolute blast! I just thought I'd share this piccie with you. I think you can tell I'm enjoying myself.
Since having children my belly has never quite been what it used to be..it may not be big but it certainly wobbles. A lot. Bellydancing has really given me a confidence boost about my wobbly bits. It's about the dance, the music, the enjoyment rather than what size or shape you may be. I highly recommend it!
A very kind person sent me a beautiful orange coined hip belt in to QVC when they heard me mentioning my new hobby. In return all they asked for was a signed photo of me…I am absolutely devastated that I have misplaced the letter which had their details in it. I deliberately put it in a safe place but it's nowhere to be seen. Please, please if it was you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or write in to QVC again and I will post the piccy out to you right away. I love the belt and wear it to my classes regularly and really want to say a personal thank you.
Here is a piccy of Mandy modelling it as a headscarf during a recent evening in practising our moves! The more wine we had the better we seemed to get..'beer goggle' effect, I think that is!
Please write in and share with everyone…with the new year just weeks away it may be a great time to think about taking up a new hobby. What have you always wanted to try?
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Love Catherine x
