Thursday 30 June 2011: Gym nippers
I took an hour off this morning to go and see Bella's end of term Gym Nippers performance.
It was a little disappointed at the lack of clowns and elephants, but the skill, agility and concentration on display more than made up for it.
The main danger seemed to be dropping off the balance bar while staring proudly at a seated parent, something Bella cleverly avoided by traversing the bar sideways with her back to us.
Of course, when I were a lad, we didn't have all this apparatus and had to learn the same skills by breaking into buildings and trespassing on private property.
