"Just in case anyone wondered what I meant by being useless with hair see the photo below. No I hadn't had a severe fright. This was the aftermath of Pickering. Bad hair day or what????"

"G - After 4 years of re-enacting, I have perfected one hairstyle which i do everytime. All my hair wrapped around a sausage to make a victory roll. It still takes me a good 20 minutes to do that, and quite regularly it doesn't go to plan and I cover it all up with a snood and hat.

Does anyone else have the same issue I have regarding dances? I can't dance. That is, I can't jive, foxtrot, quick step or waltz. I can manage a Gay Gordon, voleta, jive barn dance and the other social dances, but so many of these events only…
