Tomorrow and Prayers

Tomorrow ,I will need to be up and about a bit earlier than I have been of late ,not so much up ,as dressed and ready ! ....I am being picked up at nine fifteen ,to go off to the Tenants conferance ....the company I used to work for (and am still on the news letter team ) used to hold these sort of meetings at big hotels locally ,who had conferance rooms suitable for a large gatherings, and were no doubt charged  exhorbitant fees ,now they are held at a rather grand purpose built complex for the deaf/blind,and so of course the fees from us using this as our venue for the day go towards a far more worthy cause .

After the opening greetings we will ,seperate to different work shops of our choice ,on offer ,I have opted for one on recycling,in the morning session and best value in the afternoon,we will have breaks and a speaker and lunch and a chance to do some net working,ending the afternoon ,with a question and answer session ....so it promises to be an interesting day out ...Maurice would like to have been there too , but since it is his last night tonight ,he would be to tired

Karen has compiled some pictures of various activities through the year ,to be shown on the big screen ,to be viewed during a tea/coffee breaks ,and asked my permission to use the one she took of Bob(the Chelsea Pensioner)and I ,so Ally has asked me to take some pictures ,so if I get chance I will do that ...Well I am now off to sort through my wardrobe to look for something to wear ,it has turned alot cooler /cold now ,so with that in mind ....I will wish you all a good day ......

But before I go, can I ask you all to keep Jackie ,from 'H ope Floats'   http://journals.aol.com/siennastarr/Hopefloats/  in your thoughts and prayers there is a tereble fire raging near her home ,with four dead and one seriously injured firemen ,Jackie has had the most awful year ,and can really do without this ,Jackie is one of the girls working so hardon the Vi Vi awards ,so Jackie you are in out thoughts at this time ......

Have a fun day at the conference tomorrow.  The workshops should be very interesting.  I always learn one or two valuable things from them.  

What a coincidence I have a conference next weekend too.  As an ambassador of the Viva Project and the Youth Forum, I have been asked to give a speech.

Have a great day!

Hope you have a great day tomorrow. I have been hearing about the fire on news on our TV. They say it was arson. I have been in prayer for all those people. They need the rain we have here today instead of all that wind. Helen

icklemisssexpot said...

Love the butterflies on your entry today they are such a pretty colour...Here's an idea for recycling but not sure if it would go down too well...I haven't used plastic carrier bags at the supermarket for about 3 years now...Well i do occasionally but not for a big shop...I use those plastic crates that fold flat...So now i get what would have been about between 10-20 carrier bags worth into either 1 or 2 crates or sometimes 3 if it is a huge huge shop...Tescos encouraging their shoppers to use their own containers makes me laff and i always say when i see the ad that they are copying me LOL...I didn't start it to be envirmentally friendly but to save me carrying tons of bags up the stairs but it works either way...Hope you enjoy the conference   Caff xxxxxx

A busy day  sounds good.Feel sad for Jackie especially with all that fuss over the vivi awards as well.She could do without this extra burden and must be so frightened.I have left a message and she will be in my prayers. love conniex

cacklinrosie101 said...

Sounds like you will have an interesting day, Jan.  I think the recycling will be a fascinating topic.  Have yourself a good day.  I'm so worried about Jackie.  I have her cell number and haven't been able to reach her.  I'm just praying that everything is all right.  xx  Chris
