Wow well it has been awhile since I did this writing thing! How are you all?
So lots has happenedsince my last write up. RHowever long story short, just like Sarah I too have quit my job andmoved away from busy busy London, and now I have lots more time to dothings like JUGGLE!
So what have I been up to? Well those of you who aresubscribed to me on my Youtube channel will have seen that lately Ihave been going crazy trying to buy every last prop from Firetoys now England is getting some glorious weather. Mylatest toy being a walking ladder, loving the prop at the moment, I am recording my progress just for fun.Unfortunately training has ground to a halt due to the little rubberfeet being already completely destroyed? It's only been two weeks?Are they designed to be used on clouds?

So what the heck is a huddle juggler? Well I have recently had a juggling gig. I was hired to try andcreate a fun atmosphere at a careers fair by Huddle. The idea was tobring along some fire and knives and turn some heads, a faultlessplan!

O hello health andsafety.
Yes we were told prettymuch straight away that both danger props were a no go. So it wasback to old faithful balls and clubs. Unfortunately as all jugglerswho have performed such things know, you can do the hardest tricksyou can think of and nobody will really turn a head. It is sad but Ihave found that nobody really cares much about juggling, well notlike other circusy people anyhow. However, put a chance of juggler death in theequation and you have a completely different story. Do simple cascadewith fire and you will have an audience, it is the jugglers tragedy.
I set off to try andget some interest, luckily I had brought a stilt along with me. In mystreet show I end with a juggle hopping about on a single poweriser stilt and itnever fails to get attention, and now was no different. I basicallyaccosted people, showed them a trick or two and sent them in thedirection of the Huddle stand, something that was pretty easy aseverybody I spoke to had a great opinion of Huddle anyway. The gig turned into a hybrid of walkabout and performance kind of thing, but it worked quite well.
Best way to train one side of your body only!
After two days ofjuggling and hopping about in the heat, it is no surprise that myarms are now aching like mad, and at least one of my legs are :)Really enjoyed the experience and am looking to do lots lots lotsmore juggling again now I have escaped London so expect more posts, Iwill also try and record some of my live performances so you can seewhat I get up to.
