Rebound as therapy

Whats that I asked my mentor?

Only bouncing around on humongous trampolines, my god you could not get me on that minibus fast enough. myself and 2 carers took 3 clients, who all have profound and complex Learning disabilities for their weekly rebound sessions. We were meant to have a client each and take turns at having a rest, not a bloody chance its Janathon. I bounced with 1 client, then the next one came and got on our trampoline, as their carer was resting, before I new it I had all 3. A jolly good time was had bouncing for over an hour, the clients had a great time too ;) Also, seeing them so animated was an absolute joy.

Must remember to do ones pelvic floor exercises before I go again next week, four children and all that, I suppose I could always resort to Tena Lady!!!!!!!!.

I got my four miles extra walking in again, must admit I was tempted to stay on the bus for a few extra stops though as torrential rain was weather of the day today. But no, I braved it like the good little Janothoner that I am.

Got home a little earlier than expected so dragged my self out for a little jaunt on the bike too, only one mile as I discovered that its too bloody dark to ride at night here even with my bike lights, but hey ho I bounced myself silly today.


  1. Trampolining is fab exercise, I did a class once and I was completely knackered by the end :) Sounds like you all had fun!

  2. Well done! You are a true Janathoner!

  3. an HOUR? of Trampolining? My god I'm not surprised you were tempted to skip some of the anti-bus-walking.

    My godson has a big garden trampoline and he usually finishes me off within about 10 minutes.

  4. it is so much fun, and when you have someone holding your hands who you have never heard utter a word,or make eye contact stare directly at you saying "one more bounce" well my heart just melted and on I bounced
