SCHOOL HOLIDAY MAGIC:

It has been such a fun day! A big thank you to all the families who came along to see the performances.

The day started off with TWO booked out shows at Rathmines Theatre followed by an evening performance at
The Ary Toukley
where two of my Circus Friends surprised me by attending the performance - it was a lovely impromptu catch up 🙂
Its very exciting that COVID 19 restrictions have lifted and events such as these can take place. Keep your eye on this page as I hope to announce similar family friendly Variety Shows in the near future.
(Special thanks to Rachel Mallaby for the photos)

PUZZLES:


I recently obtained some Puzzle Books from the collection of the late Gary Neville. Gary was a High School Teacher (and Magic Enthusiast!!) who was always challenging his classes with Puzzles and Riddles.

While this sort of thing is not everyone's cup of tea, I thought it might be fun to post a couple of puzzles below. To play along you may leave your answers in the comments below. I will post the correct answers TOMORROW!

1. What is a four letter word that can be read forwards, backwards or upside down?

2. I have an object in my hands which is a thread-like material. I cut clean through it with a pair of scissors. I have not created two pieces with four ends but only one piece with two ends. What is the object?

3. Professor Paradox startled his fellow passengers on the train yesterday by leaping to his feet and exclaiming:
"Brothers and children have I none,
But my Father's Grandson is Nick's Father's Son"
What relation is Nick to the Professor?

CONGRATULATIONS OLIVIA AND JADE!!
