Word of the week: skeleton



We spent quite a bit of time at NIA Dance White Belt Training last October in Wotton under Edge studying the skeleton.

And….it was fascinating!

Our trainer, Helen, brought the skeleton to life and I came away with some great creative ways of remembering different bones, i.e. ‘the 5 lumbar vertebrae are like bicycle handles’, ‘the ulna and radius are the only bones that spiral’ and ‘the pelvis, chest and head are our 3 main body weights’.

This image popped up on my Facebook page today, and I love it!  What a great way of illustrating names of bones…

Plus, I like the word skeleton.  Why?

  • most words that start with ‘sk’ are quite interesting.
  • it reminds me that it’s easy for us to take the skeleton for granted, it’s an amazing piece of machinery.  And well, without it, we’d be nothing more than ‘skin and guts’ 🙁
  • my son used to love watching comic villain ‘Skeletor’ on tele.

Are you looking after your skeleton?


@politicalhackuk Jaw dropping seems to be the new norm; we simply have to #StopBrexit

These people are beyond reason; this whole shambles was built on a wafer thin margin and a bunch of now discredited promises. 3 yrs on The People need to be given a meaningful choice now the facts are clearer.

Three years ago today the UK voted to leave the EU. I spent most of the day crying. Three years on we are still in as it has proven far more complex and damaging than even remainers like me thought. We now need to move on. Only a #PeoplesVote can do that.
