Also I have another hobby, but I'm not much into it compared to figure skating.

I like to read about extinct animals, ancient times animals etc.

Hi, there definitely is, this move is from ballet, but I honestly don't remember the term for it, there is a huge glossary of those terms and they are all in French.

I don't have the time to watch the video, but just seeing «Russian v English version «heading already puts me off. Cause there is no such thing, I don't know where people are coming from — with such utter crap. There is no such thing as English ballet, ballet is classified completely differently. For example, in my daughter's school it is Gechetti method and Vaganova method, a mixture of the two. But they teach contemporary as well and all sorts of stuff.

My youngest son knows absolutely everything and anything there is to know about dinosaurs and other extinct animals, it is crazy how much he knows. He has been into all that stuff since he was about 3 years old and has some friends from nursery who are in different schools now (he is 8 now) or even moved out of London, but he meets up with them now and again still, cause they are also into it, they exchange all sorts of nature science models and their knowledge on the subject, etc. It is crazy.

I got to go to work now, I know you have May holidays right now in Russia. We don't. But we have two bank holidays in May (one in the beginning of May and one at the end of May), this upcoming Monday is a bank holiday. And both me and my husband managed to take Tuesday off. So we are having a long weekend.
We spontaneously booked a luxury break in Venice, Italy — for 4 days — right in the middle of all the palazzos and canals and gondolas — the view from the hotel will be amazing we were told and we are flying out BA business class. I don't mind whether to fly economy or business class, it is not a long flight, but no other flights were available at such short notice. Flying out this Friday evening — straight after work and coming back next Tuesday night — the flight literally touches down at Gatwick at 11 pm on Tuesday — so won't get home till one o clock past midnight and we both have to be at work the next day — Wednesday — but who cares. We just felt like we have to get away — come hell or high water. We have a big holiday coming up at the end of July — almost two and a half weeks, but that seems like miles away.

I will post some nice pics from there when I get a chance. For now

Venice - the most beautiful City in Italy (this is not my point of view, it is what the Italians say)

Reddit is known here as a pile of trash. And the comments are usually trashy. I don't go on websites like that.

P. S. About Venice. I have been to Venice three times in total in my life and to be honest — it is one of those ultra special places that you never get tired of. Probably one of the best places to go in Europe, but a bit funny. It is extremely pricey, for example — transfer to our hotel one way is £300 (just a short 3 mile trip from Marco Polo airport) — I mean, that is pricey by European standards, food is much pricier than the South of France, etc. Water taxis and gondolas — private ones are pricey, and a lot of Italian millionaires have houses there. But — the beauty of it is quite breathtaking. When you are there, it is like — you are in a very very old place, a lot of medieval and Renaissance architecture, it is like the time stopped there ages ago and has stood still, you suddenly remember all those nature paintings of Venice from the famous museums you saw in your life at one point or another. The cobbles on the streets are very old and they even banned the suitcases with wheels there, cause they make such a load of noise and the place is packed with tourists from all over the world — throughout the year regardless. But it is like a tourist trap in terms of spending, even a bowl of pasta is expensive in the local restaurants (well, compared to France for instance, where the food is dirt cheap). The first time I went there — I went with a boyfriend who was not rich himself (obviously, we were very very young at the time) and we tried to do it on the cheap, he ended up phoning his parents and getting them to pay for a lot of stuff on their cards by phone.

Unfortunately, the environmentalists are saying that Venice will be gone as we know it — in about 20 years. Cause they have a problem of the water level rising year on year, so eventually they will — kind of sink. I don't know how alarmist that is, but I hope it won't happen. The place is absolutely beautiful. More special than Paris or Barcelona or any of those places.

You are good at describing your trips. And it seems like Venice made quite an impression on you. I think I'll go there in a year or two. I hope this place won't sink and will be fine.

Thank you so much for the compliment, I am not that good at describing things, rather simplistic, I am a bit like a dog — I say (bark) what I see and I guess it has its own appeal to people — other times, it puts them off, etc.

I really hope you will go there, you will absolutely love it. You are quite distinguished in your tastes if you don't mind me saying.

Another thing -massive thing — you know I banged on here a lot about my daughter getting the role of Matilda and doing theatre performances. Well, Professional Arts Awards took an exam of one of her performances and they gave her the highest possible mark — Distinction and well, this is actually a big one. She got the Certificate today, I am gonna post it. Remember I posted her Matilda "a little bit naughty" song in one of the rehearsals?

Btw, Kamila Valieva like Ina Bauer is a dying breed nowadays

Usually ladies do it like that




I'm glad Eteri teaches her students to do a proper Ina Bauer. It doesn't give them more points. But I believe judges see the difference and give some extra points in presentation for a lady who can do a proper Ina Bauer. I think in will be fair

P.S. Alena has great Ina Bauer too. Alena does it so well fans call it Alena's Ina Sass Bauer ))
