Rock a Hula fundraiser!

Back for one extra special night of fundraising! If you're in London come on down and say hi! All profits from this night will be added to my fundraising total and go straight to Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support. Do you need a better excuse to party?!

Rock a Hula REVIVAL!

Sat 2nd March - 8pm until late

"Standout 1950s night" - the Times
"One of the biggest parties we've seen" - Timeout

Rock n roll, hula hooping and swing dancing return to Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes for a rare revival in Spring 2013! In 2009, something very special happened at Bloomsbury. Rock a Hula arrived: a wave of 1950s hula hoops, showgirls, rockabilly bands, hair parlours and Hawaiian beach photo booths! Over the next 2 years, thousands of people came to hula, learn to swing dance and get their vintage wriggle on, in a hands-on, un-pretentious, chaotic cavalcade of good times! Not being ones to end on a downer, Rock a Hula last hit the Lanes in December 2011, hung up our hoops, and decided to take a l'il break.

But in Spring 2013 - we're BACK for one night only: to raise a load of money for a very good cause - in aid of Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support: all profit will go to these charities.

Join us for a very special event presenting rare vinyl DJs El Nino and Lady Kamikaze, live hula hoop show from Miss Constance Irkles, special guest live band, vintage hair styling from Pretty Me Vintage and much, much more!

Advance tickets just £5 (£7 door) available now at

After what seems like months (19 days) of "taking it easy", I'm finally running again, thanks to the awesome people at Norwich Osteopathic Clinic. Not only did they fix my foot, they tolerated my internet self-diagnosis (I was right btw - smug face); they listened to my increasingly panicked training fears; they ignored the excessive quantities of fluff between my toes, and they talked me into signing up for the Black Dog Half Marathon (more about that later). HEROES. I can't recommend them highly enough. So, now I'm smiling again, I thought I'd share my good mood with you, my dedicated blog readers. AKA my Gran, and someone in Germany that stops by for a read most days (guten Abend!).  In the form of this. Lolz

*BTW = by the way
*Lolz = laughing out loudz

UPDATE: I have just been informed that in fact, this is a more accurate representation:
