Posted:yeah skully's pretty close to swansea! Or else, there is... i don't know if you know about this Skully, but there's a thing called Circus Eruption, Crockett something in Swansea anyway on monday nights, it's for teenagers methinks but they're always looking for volunteers to teach circus skills & says it doesn't matter about your ability. Check the back of the Big Issue, it's usually advertised in there....

I was freeezing on Friday, sorry i had to shoot off early though, should've come partying with you guys!!

Dunc!! your camera!! that's really bad frown cor... Cardiff's going to look like the theiving capital of UK now, first matt's mate's bike, my phone and now your camera frown
