Circles


I think I'm going to take part in Susannah Conway's August Break (although I'm late in starting because her first photo prompt is breakfast and for the last two days I've been so hungry I ate it before I could take a photo of it.  I shall endeavour to remember tomorrow.)

Here's my circles photo - some hula hoops me and the kids made this week.  Some are made from scratch (and still need to be decorated), and others are up-cycled using electrical tape and old dirty hoops we found lying in the garden.

My eldest has inspired me to have a go at hulaing (or hooping?) - she's so good at it - and, guess what! With my large, heavy, home-made hoop I can do it!  For at least a minute at a time!  I even have the bruises to prove it...  And it's good for you too.  My interweb research suggests it can burn 100 calories in 10 minutes and firm up mummy-tummy.  But for the moment, we're just having fun in the sun.

If you fancy having a go at making your own giant hoop, I recommend this tutorial which we loosely followed.  I chose it over others because she has a happy sounding blog.  And I didn't knowingly copy her photo idea, honest!
