A jam packed weekend……

A great show with Philip Kinsella at RAF Henlow on Friday night, it was good to see so many friends and I’m sure the photos that Gail took will be on Facebook very soon. Philip is a wonderful channel for Spirit and he gave comfort to many that night. We are all looking forward to our new course starting next Tuesday night. Rock and roll x

A leisurely breakfast and a natter with Em on Saturday morning then a walk into town together as she headed off to work and I went to the start of my new ‘How to write a novel course’. Bit daunting to have homework from it and I am sure by next week one of the other participants may have recovered from my unexpected comment. We were discussing themes for our novels and happiness was one of them and that sparked an interesting debate. A particular gentleman said that he’d be happier if his hair would grow back, I sent the room into slight uproar by saying that there could be blessings in his baldness as that ‘did it’ for some women. Best not to dwell on what followed…….

I met Em after she had finished at work, we had lunch together and then pottered home. A lovely evening followed with much nattering and hot chocolates complete with whipped cream.

Today the ‘boys’ and I walked with Em to her work and I went off with Liz to the public meeting being held in Shefford by Angie as she gets her ‘Retreat’ project off the ground. Liz and I have no doubt that she will pull this massive project together, but it is rather daunting for her to go public with this. Gosh this world is full of ‘nay sayers’ and we had our fair share there. Liz says I was very restrained when I turned in my seat and ‘spoke’ to the individual who was rattling on about statistics. We are throttled by statistics and health and safely wherever we turn nowadays and I think it has got out of hand as most of these figures are there to appease the banking institutions and money men. At the end of the day a lot of people hold ‘stats’ up as a form of defence, or as proof of failure or success. I don’t give a ‘monkeys’ what the stats say, or if there are stats at all. Any project needs to start somewhere and the knack is in not getting bogged down with nonsense. It takes courage to stand up and be counted by doing something different, large in scale, away from the norm and just plain brave. Go Angie, we’ll back you all the way.

Good luck with your ‘mocks’ this week Em, you are a goddess x

Lastly, a sorry to Stevie for getting caught up in Shefford and not making it back to do the tip run that he gave up his Sunday afternoon to help me with. You’re a good mate to re-schedule for tomorrow morning and yes, I will say thank you by cooking!

Now onto next week……

    Hi Jane,

    Great to see how you’re growing in your blog…
    Amazing posts and ditto graphic “upholstery”..
    Proud of what you’ve built so far and the way you got there..

    Your personal Knight…

    For you and all your hard work.

    i send you a smile for each piece of mosaic tile…
    Although it gave you sore fingertips for quite a while…

    I know for you it was a way of having fun…
    And at times you could bath a little in the sun

    Every now and then you felt a bit like shouting…
    Or was it the painful fingertips with all this grouting..

    One thing is for sure, you gave it your very best
    So now it’s time to give those creative hands a little rest

    Your Friend,

    Oooo you are awful, Jane, but I like you! Not even Dick Emery got THAT saucy with his innuendo. But they were different times. “Oh, the times, they are a-changing”

    Yes, I agree: sod the statisticians, and be brave. You and Angie ARE brave!

    Richard x
