What a whirlwind few days it has been I love the long week –end breaks.
Is this nearly summer? I have my heating on high as I am so cold.
Sunday I managed to get a few ends of petenque practice in. It’s great to see the skill is returning many moons ago I was a real whizz at petenque it looks like it’s a skill like riding a bike it’s one you never loose! In the practice it was a revelation I am better at long shots than short ones. Again it was nice to be at a naturist club enjoying the late afternoon sun. The evening was spent watching local bands at a charity event. A friend who is in the band “Frocked Up” was playing. They are great playing ballads, 60s to the present day hits. It was a chilly evening once the sun went down maybe I should have tried my new Ceroc dancing to keep warm!
Monday I was at the local naturist club taking photos for a duo life modelling project. I have been luck to find a male life model who wants to work with me. We work so well together we have the same thoughts and ideas on how to execute poses so the artists can have interesting poses. We do life modelling, costume modelling and portrait modelling. I will be adding a page to my web site with more detail on the new venture. The shoot was fun as we were using a self -timer on my camera. We managed to get some great natural looking shots. I am sure being in a wooded glade helped as there are many natural props to utilise. I had one of my moments I had found a tree that was brilliant for sitting up against. The timer was set beep, beep. I rushed into position next to the tree. In haste my footing slipped next thing I knew I was unceremoniously sliding down the trunk of the tree, landing in a heap at the foot of the tree! Like all these things it happened really quickly. Yet left me laughing uncontrollably. Oh! Was I hurt? I had a bit of a sore back on Monday and a graze on my bum!
Thankfully the day ended with a lovely Bar B Q with lots of laughter. Food was really lovely and desserts were to die for!
Back to work! What a soggy one it was everyone came in looking really soggy! It was a long day sorting cards as I had to make hours up for the Bank Holiday day off. I knew I had something to look forward to in the evening another dance class at a different town. A new move was learnt all was going well until they had us doing it three times in a row. Argh! Ok it’s a man leading the dancing so really I should just glide around and have fun…. In reality I preamp the moves and that muddles the messages between feet and brain! My solution to this is close my eyes and trust the man, this way I can feel where and how I am being guided. It is only class 2 and things are falling into place.
Today I helping a friend do some wood work in their boat. Over the years I have been “trained “how to hold things and when to pass things etc. My friend was amazed I knew how to do certain things and instinctively knew how and when to help. The wood work looks good, I am so pleased to have helped! Think a trip on a summers evening with a nice chilled wine would be nice. It would be an opportunity to see if the wood work is still standing!
A male life model has just asked my advice as he had a lucky escape at the week end. He was life modelling with some elderly women over stepped the golden rule of not touching a model whilst posing. He very sensibly cut the class short. My advice to him was that was the best thing to do and put it down to experience. And to be very careful next time.
I seem to be some kind of “auntie” with life modelling. I am often asked for advice and help. I give answers that fit the situation. I have an ability to see all sides without being judgemental maybe its to do with the hypnotherapy training.
