What a day! I've always believed that showing our #littleones what we do as 'grown ups' is vital. Do you agree? 🤔

She sees it as my #job however, it really is a #passion I try to show her the fun bits too! #wigs are great when your 5 and a little more than 5! #perksofthejob
I also like to let her try out things she is interested in. She saw The Kildare Academy of Dance and wanted to try #ballet with Miss Jenny. She loves it! The academy are performing The #Nutcracker this #Christmas
When it comes to performing I don't get up on stage but I do like to spin some fire! Any fellow #poi folk out there?
I used this skill when we ran The Moat Performing Arts Carnival #spinning #fire
I spun Fire at the canal after a candlelit walk down to the water

People who don't understand #spinning yarn by hand, aka #handspinning, think a spinning wheel works if the drive wheel turns. And that wheels are easy to build. I mean, how hard could it be? They're totally for women, so they're obviously not really technology.
These thoughts brought to you by yet another morning waking up to an email asking if someone should spend $300 on a non-working "antique" that someone says "works great," because new wheels people recommend start in the $500-600 range.

Functioning new wheels cost that because that's what it costs to build them reliably and bring them to market.

Could you build your own? people also ask often. Maybe. But you need to already have all the tools and already know how spinning wheels actually work.
