Now that dp is working from home dd can start her dance classes again. She wants to do something like disco, jazz or something modern.

She has been doing ballet and tap for a few years already.

anyone, she is currently twirling and doing a rather unsettling thrust behind me grin

Sorry, can't help, only know people with children in Wimborne ones which are a bit far, but just wanted to say I hope the move is going well for you

Thanks chocolate, we had such a great time when we came down the other week, saturday is the big day.

Chocolateteapot Thu 31-Jul-08 13:05:40

Oh brilliant, I'm glad you had a good time. Will keep my fingers crossed it all goes smoothly for you on Saturday.

Don't know about Blandford, but Dorchester Ballet and Dance club is worth a look if you can travel that far. See

twinsetandpearls Thu 31-Jul-08 13:13:23

will look at that and auto route the distance

Chocolateteapot Thu 31-Jul-08 13:25:32

Is she going to be riding again, if so have you found any where for that ?

Think Dorchester is about 30 mins from Blandford, Wimborne about 15 mins.

Two in Blandford TAP, will look them up for you hold on.

twinsetandpearls Thu 31-Jul-08 13:41:50

Yes she will be riding, there is a riding school behind our house so we may just send her there.

twinsetandpearls Thu 31-Jul-08 13:42:13

Didn't realise wimborne was that close

Shoshe Thu 31-Jul-08 13:42:25

this is the best one for dance

this on for riding

both are used by past and present mindees.

AND ARE YOU HERE YET [jumps up and down with excitment]

twinsetandpearls Thu 31-Jul-08 13:44:22

That is the riding stables behind our house, and had seen that dance place when googling. Thanks Shoshe, we arrive on Saturday.

Dp said that her school had links with a riding school as well.

Shoshe Thu 31-Jul-08 13:48:42

Which school did you choose in the end,

Are you living on M....D... Rd ?

twinsetandpearls Thu 31-Jul-08 13:50:07

No, going now to look up what M....D road is.

She is going to archbishop wake, she and dp fell in love with it.

Chocolateteapot Thu 31-Jul-08 13:51:10

Yes, not far. You just shoot down a lovely beech tree avenue past Badbury Rings and you are there.

twinsetandpearls Thu 31-Jul-08 13:52:35

round the corner from milldown road

twinsetandpearls Thu 31-Jul-08 13:53:15

I am so excited I could squeal

Shoshe Thu 31-Jul-08 13:53:39

Milldown rd is where all the senior schools are, deer park is on it.

do you want to know about Drs and such?

Shoshe Thu 31-Jul-08 13:57:30

By the hospital????

My Parents lived on Milldown Rd.

Best park around is out at Pimperne, lovely swimming pool at the leisure centre, soft play up at Sturminster Newton, great walk around the milldown, and along the old railway line.

{runs around in circles with excitment that somebody is actually moving here)

Twinset, I love your enthusiasm !

It is great, we have friends who are coming here for a week whilst we go to France. I was coming up with free/cheap things for them to do as they are a bit skint atm and as I was doing it I was thinking how lucky we are to live here.

Brilliant for your DD having a riding stable behind your house. Is she is excited about the move ?

twinsetandpearls Thu 31-Jul-08 14:04:14

have put some pictures of views from the house on my profile.

One thing I always do well is enthusiasm, all my reports for subjects I was crap at began with " well she is certainly enthusiatic.

twinsetandpearls Thu 31-Jul-08 14:05:01

I am a two minute walk from the town centre, on a cludesca that then backs on to fields.

twinsetandpearls Thu 31-Jul-08 14:06:43

She is very excited, a bit sad to leave the only house she has known and the friends she has had from being a baby but she has a wetsuit and can't wait to use it.

culdesac! shocking typing - it is the excitement.

Am taking dd into the village for lunch and will then email you.
