Its been quite a while since my last post. It seems the time has just run away.

I have been busy working on various projects in my blogging absence.  I’ve been back at Birmingham Royal Ballet in the Wardrobe department repairing, maintaining and fitting costumes.  I’ll also be working on Elmhurst School for Dance end of year gala performance.
