Keep smiling Ritchie! ““Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, and sometimes your smile is the source of your joy.” Thich Nhat Hanh
I really had to take this attitude throughout this grim time. I was blessed to have a lovely wife with the same outlook. I also cleaned up my diet and started working out near daily. And we were so lucky to have great weather in London in April. How was it where you were?
Playing should not just be for kids and while I went down there to do some filming, I ended up having great fun playing with Juggling Jake‘s mini-bike, tightrope and walking plant pot thingies. I am doing some magic shows at Swan Shopping Centre in Leatherhead as part of their awesome Magic Mondays events every week in August. I think me and Miranda had more fun there than the kids.
Juggling Jakes does brilliant juggling shows and his workshops are so fun. He had so many fun toys which of course the kids were all over but so were the mums and dads. Really was great family fun. My favourites were the mini bikes. I used to own one and right it quite easily now I can barely get going on it without pulling 12 muscles.
Come down to Leatherhead; Swan Shopping Centre next Monday 20th August and 27th August. Bring the little ones too! Like Swan Shopping’s Facebook page here. They have great shops and cafes and lots of brill events.
I am trying to cut down on my LBC consumption as news and politics is frankly depressing and disempowering especially news about Brexit. But I do love Nick Abbot even though starting at 10 pm he’s well past my bedtime, I can now listen on the LBC catch up app. I have yet to call in but I did send him a text last week and this was his response.
