If you look carefully on the State Theta website, you’ll see a picture of Guineapigmum indulging in an arcane Pilates ritual.  I’ve been doing Pilates with a local teacher over the winter; just what I’ve needed to get my much abused body back under control.  Anyhow, Audicia is planning to hold a series of classes – various activities – in her brand new, very beautiful Ormiston studio over the summer, so do take a look at her brand new, equally beautiful website.   The classes aren’t yet on the website by the looks of it, but they are on posters displayed at various locations locally.

And the guitarist Gordon Giltrap is playing in New Winton village hall at the start of June.  I think there are tickets still available if you’re interested. 

A hissy fit or the Secret Life of Chemistry Teachers

New Winton Village Hall, near Tranent, was the venue for a concert on Friday night, featuring local singer-songwriters Kim Edgar and Alex Hodgson – and, on the double bass,  Gareth, head of Chemistry at PL.    The hissy fit came from GP1 as we hadn’t consulted him in enough detail before buying tickets and he went swimming instead.  His loss – it was a great evening of entertainment.   There are two more evenings coming up – a Scottish Music Night on the 10th May and the guitarist Gordon Giltrap on the 6th and 7th June.  Gordon Giltrap played at the hall a couple of years ago and was apparently a huge success, with tickets selling out within a week.  We’ve bought ours; although if GP1 throws another fit, there may be a ticket going spare.
