My new place :-)

Monday, March 25th, 2013

I am about to move from my current house which has no space to handstand or have a good stretch, into a fabulous warehouse conversion where just outside my bedroom is this amazing training space.  I will be living with other performers including handbalancers and bendy people which will also be fun.  My actual room is rather small but i think i’ll fit, it’s all about getting the storage system for all my clothes and stuff right!  So basically I can train without kicking lightbulbs, wardrobes, chest of drawers, ceilings, walls etc etc, how very exciting!!!!

 

Facebook Addiction = The need for a Facebook month off!

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

After deciding i was too addicted to Facebook I decided to have a break from it.  I used to go on it on autopilot as soon as the computer got switched on, and wasted endless hours on there.  I designated March as my No Facebook month.

It is sad but i would spend hours on Facebook and then would end up comparing my life to everyones amazing news updates i read about and got depressed i wasn’t doing enough, when actually i have this amazing life where i am happy and content.  Being single and babyless i also got a bit bored of all the baby pictures and updates that seem to take over 75% of my newsfeed…

I logged out on my computer and deleted the Facebook app from my phone.  10 days in and i was struggling, the temptation to log in was great, all i could think about was what i was missing out on.  At the same time it was blissfully refreshing not to have my life being taken over by Facebook.  I resisted temptation and didn’t log in.  I am now 20 days in and I still haven’t logged in.  It is amazing how i now feel like i don’t have to be on Facebook all the time, that it doesn’t matter what the Facebook world is up to because this is MY life here and now, i DO NOT NEED to log into Facebook to live my life happily.  I am very grateful for my Facebook break.

I will however be logging in on the 1st April 00:01am.  However, I plan to log out after each log in to reduce the autopilot Facebook visits and restrict my time on there, and i am still debating whether to reinstall the app on my phone.

 

Ickle Pickles

Monday, March 11th, 2013

Last week I performed at an event called the Incubator Ball for Ickle Pickles.  I performed my handbalance contortion act followed by walkabout handbalance and contortion.  (www.icklepickles.org)

Ickle Pickles are a charity that raise money to buy equipment for neonatal baby units, such as incubators.  It was a pleasure to perform at their event, and absolutely fantastic news to hear they had raised a massive £18,100!!!

Below are some pictures by photographer Charlie Turner (www.charlieroundturner.com) and some feedback I received from my performances 🙂

“Sally was fantastic.”  “We had some brilliant feedback about her performance.”  Rachel from Ickle Pickles

I need a new place to live

Monday, March 4th, 2013

I need a new place to live!  If anyone knows of anywhere in North London, zone 1/2/3, with a big room for rent then do let me know.   I have to move by when my contract runs out, so before the 27th March. x
