They may take my sunshine, but they’ll never take my freedom!

The transition from Thursday to Friday was a tiring, sleepless yet exciting one…and so our journey began ante meridiem, much later than planned, but earlier than I expected… Timings are always late in our household. A while after we embarked upon our travels I obviously had a nap in the passenger seat, which is about as comfortable as sleeping on a rock. Upon awakening it was bloody pissing it down! Ahhh, we must be in Scotland finally!

We eventually arrived at Wiston Lodge to hit things, mostly drums, yey. What a fun experience it’s been thus far and hopefully the rest of the 8 days will be on the drum circle facilitators UK Playshop Mentor training course. Appropriately named, as opposed to a workshop, there’s much play involved 🙂 fun times.

As soon as I arrived on Friday, the true b-boy in me emerged and I found myself testing out the decking in front of the cabin I’m staying in. (You know you’re a breaker when you find yourself examining how suitable every floor is for dancing on, where ever you are.) The scenery was magnifiscent and I couldn’t resist busting out some moves while there was a strange period where water wasn’t actually falling from the sky. Earlier on today, Saturday at the time of tapping on the keyboard, there was a break in the training program and a couple of people continued to drum, so I cleared a space at the end of the room and got my groove on. There’s no way I could go 10 days without breaking at some point, especially when theres a smooth wooden floor staring back at me almost every minute of the day. Stop typing Twist and show me the damn video, ok:
