Posted:yeah mabye. and yeah the ferrets will be coming ith me. but not at the moment. all they do is bit like hell. i mean they bite down to the bone then dont let go. we adopted them from a rescue centre so before they got there they must have been treated bdly by humans cbecause they hate everyone. but a few weeks of TLC (if i can get close enough to touch them) and they should be find. but its going to be hard. the boy all ready loves poi he stole my socks and ran behinde the sofa lol.

Posted:welcome back emogal, hope you're stay in hospital wasn't too serious and good to hear you are on the road to recovery....

So really, where is everybody? where's gizmo disappeared to? and miss buggleberry fairy, did you get her along to a meet yet? So my back hurts less, although still not spinning because crazy big pile of stuff to do, however i could be persuaded were there to be a cardiffy meet arranged for sometime preferably on a day it's not raining... or somewhere dry... but i'm a bit short on suggestions for those kind of places smile

Posted:ive got a slipped disk of cartilage in my jaw and still dont know whats wrong with my back, goin for an MRI scan which will hopefully tell me. Got really bad news from the doctor though: no poi until they know whats wrong, which could take anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months! so im not really a happy bunny, well because of that and because they have put me on 1200mg of co-drydamol a day, along with a few other pills

ummmm...........anybody have any suggestions as to what i can put here?!

Posted:*didn't realise there disks of cartilage in jaws* Ouch! that sounds painful. But at least it's winter, and no doubt you will be poi-ing again by summer, when it's nice and warm and easy to do so.

And so... ok, next meet whenever that shall be a sunday. which is good for me also, so yes...

Posted:now... i don't want to sound like a nasty responsible adult or anything, but i wouldn't recommend doing too much spinning before your back is better or you might just make it worse... then you will be unspinnyful for aaaages, maybe months, maybe years!! or it might be fine, but you never know, so don't over do it...

as for the jaw problem, sounds like you will have to do most of your talking online for a while anyway, good excuse for HoPping! biggrin

Posted:we are good here. dylan busted out an infinite hyperloop into an antispin flower the other day!!!(translates to: he spun them around a little) he really likes my old wooden diabolo sticks because he can bang them together over and over.

i can do a 2 diabolo shuffle now and duicides with one. i really need more space for practice with all this rain, like a gym frown
