When we went to see Disco Cirque, my eldest daughter was smitten by the silk work—an extremely flexible performer executed stunning acrobatics while gripping two pieces of silk cloth that hung from beam to floor.
So now her birthday wish is for two long pieces of silk and duct tape, to best attach the cloth to our ceiling.
I might just go with the second option on her birthday list: a pair of Rollerblades, which I was fully prepared to veto until her obsession with circus silks.
Perhaps she’s be satisfied if she saw her mum wearing these fab Circus Suede and Net booties by Christian Louboutin?
Or should I just send in the clowns?
