Got the passport. After days of chasing around to get proof of address at the banks, doctors and optitians all they asked to see on the day was my marriage licence. It took four hours and £114.00 and I walked out of the office in Peterborough with a new passport. Mrs Dixon it is now – an e-passport and a picture that makes me look like a criminal (no smiles allowed).
It feels great to be getting back into performing. Did a bellydance workshop on Sunday with Dawn O’Brien on two different styles – Fusion and American Folk something. It was so good my friend and I booked some private sessions with her and had the first one tonight. It’s so different having someone making sure your posture is right, that the moves are being done correctly and to have time to drill the moves to build muscle memory.
Have to find a way to fuse bellydance and poetry on stage – can I do it by the end of November for ‘Positively Red’?
