Last Saturday Toby and I got to go Swing Dancing at the local Bowlo (aka Hazelbrook Bowling Club). It is right about the corner (almost) from our home. Dad kindly looked after the kids and off we went. It was our first time going dancing in a little over 3 years.I found out that I no longer fit the dance shoes I bought 5 years ago :( Turns out it’s true after 4 kids my foot has grown half to a whole size. I guess I was doing well until the last one.
Lets just say the band wasn’t so crash hot (PenrithSwingBand). But we didn’t care, we got up for all but 3 dances for the night. We made several boo boo’s and laughed a lot.
It was so much fun to go out and have the dance floor pretty much to ourselves and feel no pressure that we were surrounded by great dancers or have to feel bad at how rusty we both were.
Today we ran into some of the people that were there that night at a garage sale. They said “are you the two dancers from the other night”, we said “yes”. They said “that was great!” So a compliment to boot.
Now we’ll have to find another venue we can go out and strut our stuff at.
