I've been residing in Winchester over the weekend - a lovely relaxing time with RAF son and family. He's got a good posting there, he's teaching at the college, while DiL is having fun - (AKA working) - at a nearby stable. Grandaughter has been 'working' at a nearby kennels, to get some experience in - part of the plan for eventual V.E.T. training!
I see that some enviable marathon running has taken place - well done all
and I see that MY beaches have been invaded - you are very welcome to enjoy the Gower, but remember the mantra - leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but photographs. Being good WAISTers, I'm sure that has been the case
Meldy - DON'T THROW THOSE MAGS OUT! Please donate them to a local school or some such. Many schools now are trying to get kids interested in crafts and the like and I'm sure that they would appreciate them. If not, a charity shop would take them.
PS, any knitting/sewing patterns can be chucked my way, I'll pay postage
I've had a bit of a full on day today, a poetry workshop most of the day. I turned up late because I had a watch on that I'd not worn since before the clocks sprung forward . I was only half an hour late, cos I thought I would get there half an hour early so I could look around the place!
This evening, I've been to the world premiere of Under Milkwood The Opera. Some of you may have heard of Dylan Thomas our famous poet. This year is the celebration of 100 years since his birth, so lots going on round and about. The Opera was good, really good. A little 'modern' in parts musically speaking, but on the whole very enjoyable. It was extremely well staged and performed.
