Video: Bod Roll on Aerial Fabrics

I just thought I'd share a video of doing some aerial fabrics, as a few people I know seem curious as to what it involves.

Here's a video of me practicing a bod roll in class earlier this month:

It's the only video I have of doing aerial fabrics at the moment, but I'll try and add some more of different moves over the next few months.

Baking bread

I recently bought a copy of the cookbook Five Minute Bread, and I've been having a lot of fun with it! I really enjoy a homemade loaf, but I get fed up of kneading fast, so after hearing some recommendations of this "no need to knead" bread book, I thought I'd give it a try. So far, so good! The cookbook is not vegan and includes some recipes which are not suitable for vegans such as a bread salad and some sandwich recipes, but in general most of the bread recipes are vegan.

It’s time for the end of ageing nuclear power stations in Europe

 Last month, I joined a delegation of UK Greenpeace activists going to Belgium to take action at the Tihange Nuclear Power Station on the Meuse River in Huy, which has been running since 1975. It was designed to have an operational lifetime of just 30 years, and yet decisions made by the Belgian government in 2003 and 2012 mean that it is now permitted to run until 2025, a full twenty years longer than it had been originally designed for. It should seem obvious to anyone that this extension is simply not safe, far above and beyond even the normal dangers of running a nuclear power station.
