I am totally out of synch again! I missed Sunday’s and Wednesday’s posts and I am posting this today instead of tomorrow because I have a new computer. I got it for my birthday from my lovely husband and once I get it set up things should get a bit easier. This ‘steam’ driven computer I am still using at the moment is really on its last legs and stops and crashes all the time. However before I can set up the new one I need to transfer some files from this one to my external hard drive, and then I’ll have to set up the new computer so I can access the internet and my emails – oh you know all that techy stuff that I’m not much good at. If I disappear for a while again you’ll know why!
Since my last post I really have been ultra busy. My local history group had two Open Days in the Cemetery – believe me it’s more fun that it sounds – and as well as the actual two days we had to set up displays, learn scripts, I had to research and write a guided walk and then when it was all over we had to take it all down and pack it up. If you are interested you can read about it here: http://www.rshg.org.uk/newsarticle.asp?newsid=349
The weather was glorious, lots of people came and we had a lot of fun!
The day after our Open Days was a Bank Holiday, this was fortunate because somehow I managed to sleep for 12 hours! I never do that and normally I am an early riser. My husband finally came to check if I was OK at 11am and woke me up. I felt a bit groggy when I first got up but the weather was so nice I spent the rest of the day in the garden tidying up.
On Thursday, after work, I did my first (1 of 4) workshop with the young people at the Foyer. Gosh that was a challenge! I’m not sure they were inspired by me or by the idea of making matchbox momentos, that’s what I was asked to do with them. Some of them did some fantastic work, but it was so hard to keep the attention and interest of others. I am going to have to try harder for the next three weeks, I hope some of them come back next week, I was really looking forward to sharing a creative experience with new people.

Right, now to start sorting out transferring from one computer to another, hopefully I will see you soon from my new super-dooper, ultra fast machine.
