The Greatest Show on Earth

Roll up, roll up!

Fantastic feats of daring.

Glitter.

Glamour.

A colourful display to remember for the rest of your life.

Danger!

Novelty!

And all accomplished without the aid of a safety net!

Yes,  your woolgatherer is…. performing amazing feats with a {gasps from the audience} crochet hook!

Well, that was unexpected…

Well, that was unexpected…

I was confiding that Heidi’s days with us are numbered, we had picked out our new van and that Mr Snail was taking her to Cognac to get a PX price… Things did not go to plan.
