Does any one fancy a picnic type affair on the common in S'hampton on a saturday day to evening and maybe beyond??

I tried to get something together for this weekend - but it all went a bit flat..

Anyhoo.. If you think it could be a good idea.. lettuce know.. and I'll try to sort it out..

picnics by close to the sea side..

Posted:Wonderful to see everyone and have a good natter and spin.
I think Spanner deserves an award for learning the basics of staff in the quickest time - what was it? 10 minutes?

Great to see you again to Ros, and stop saying you're rubbish at spinning!!

Also everybody else for turning up and staying through the rain - it was wonderful.

Hurrah for Stix for organising it

Posted:Hi everyone! Had a really good time at 'spoc' thanks for making us feel welcome...just got back from southampton and its 9 oclock! Cheers to jim 'the scientist' for letting us sleep and eat all his food at his house!

It has also encouraged me to keep trying with the poi...and maybe even have another go at staff!

And the journey didnt go too bad on the way home! Cheers!

Posted:I never once said I was rubbish!!

I mentioned that I should practise more - and I pointed out some nifty stuff that others weree doing and said I wanted to learn it! I've just had tempest hastling me for about an hour for being negative It's just cos I want to be able to do the stuff I see around me - that's all! But I never put myself down (maybe messing about but not seriously) - surely someone will attest to that??

She does however complain that she's not as good as certain others round these parts.


I, on the other hand fully accept that i'm rubbish at spinning.....

But anyhoo - you're an amasing spinner and I was mucho impressed with all the BTB stuff that's been playing havoc with my shoulders for the last couple of months.

I'll try and put the photos up this evening, I didn't take as many as I wanted, but that's just an excuse to do it again

Posted:we started at the Hobbit pub drinking pint cocktails for 4 - I had a Frodo (double vodka, Arhcers, cranberry and lemonade) and a Gollum (double vodkz, blue curocao, orange juice and lemonade) Had to drink them really quick coz it was closing time.. so i mixed the two together - got a Mirkwood (looks like muddy water) but tasted great..

Then it was off to the Dungeon (bit of a goth/mental club) but it's got a nice area outside where we sat with the jugglers... they had pretty balls.. UV and everything...

Posted:T'was my fault for draggin' ole Trippy away from the party... I promise next time I'll let him play!! Thanks to everyone for sharing (either directly or from letting me watch) their skills... I will have to get me practicing hat on!!

Next time I think I'll invest in a BBQ and some grub... I was starving by 10 'o'clock!! Hence we wandered home for pizza!

Thanks again to you all, hope we can do it again some time, Trippy is hoping to get a POOFTAR ! going (Poi Or Other Fire Toys At Rudheath!)...

Posted:lol - The Frogollumdo (later named the mirkwood cos it looked like pondwater) was the nicest drink in the place! Good on ya misstix!

Chilli & Trippy - I didn't know you were driving down. You could have brought my boyfriend with you1 I haven't seen the poor bloke for weeks - so if it happens again we'll have to arrange something.

(The jugglers were Rupert n Tom btw)

THanks to everyone for a wicked night and so much inspiration! I can't put my toys down - there is so much I need to learn. loads of special thanks to Durbs n Stixy who both gave me a real confidence boost Love you guys. And as always you both looked bloody fantastic with an endless supply of new stuff! Stix your green flames were boooootiful.

Great to meet Trippy, Scientist n Chillipepper too you're all naturals n with a teacher like trippy your staff's gonna get good real quick. - and WessexGirl rocks! Sorry you had to run off so early babe. Ow - your spinning blew me away, so I've nicked a load of your tricks to make me feel better .

Strugz - thank your lovely girl for, well, being lovely and putting me up and for having the best sofa in the whole wide world. I've stolen some of your doubles stuff cos it looked awesome, but you don't need to worry.....by the time I've perfected it you'll be well away with a whole new set of nifty tricks. Great to see you babe, and to meet mrs wonderful

ooooooo - I wanna see everyone again!

It's quite alright, it's the least i could do, as you showed me how to turn the bloody thing off

That we will.
I did think that before the event, but as he hadn't been into the thread i figured he mustn't have been interested.
Infact, warn him that i'm gonna start to pester him to meet up for a burn!!!! As his secret is out that he lives 10 minutes down the road from me.
I think he just doesn't like me
