    These are great facts! You wouldn’t believe how many children I’ve com across in teaching who really think the world was black and white! I also did tap and jazz but only til I was 14 and I never did ballet after I got told my toes naturally stick up too much and i’d never be any good! My ankles still click everytime I move. I also have the worst immune system which isn’t good when I work with young children who cough, sneeze and constantly pick their nose! I hate any sport: watching or playing but this could be because unlike you I am very competitive and hate losing which would happen a lot if I actually played any! Oh and Tammy Girl was the best!

I’ve had a cold for nearly a month now.. boo hoo!
