There was a point last autumn when I was attempting to go out three week nights in a row: for choir, ballet and morris. Which is hard enough anyway, but harder when I had to spend time with Missy when I got in, making them very late nights (and she really wasn't happy about me being out so much). I spent the rest of the week and the weekend recovering. To make it harder, trying to do the steps at morris is hard enough as it is, without having aching legs from ballet.
Something had to go and I hoped something would make the decision for me. And something did: the point to book for ballet this term was when Missy died and I was not feeling like making any decisions.
So I am currently not doing ballet. It's not the first time I stopped. After an autumn where I bought a house, had labyrinthitis and was busy at work, I then needed some time to relax in the winter, so took a term off.
I hate to stop because it feels like I keep taking things up and then dropping them. The trouble is that there are so many things I want to do and only so much time to do them. I can't remember when I started ballet, but it was before 2011. So I've been doing it a long time. I originally started to help me with my balance. And then in summer I found I have better balance than normal people who don't have a balance problem. So I think it's safe to say it's worked.
