Friday again

Hello every one ,its a bit of a nothing sort of day ,weather wise ,the wind has dropped thank goodness ,its been so wild the last few days ,doing a lot of damage and lots of flooding .

I havent posted since the beginning of the week ,On Monday evening I went to the Womens Institute ,Ipaid my subsciption for the year,and enjoyed the  'speaker slot ' we had four people telling storys ,And this might sound dull, but believe me they told their storys  with such enthusiasm with out hesitation on different topics ,with out notes  ,they had us spell bound ,and I hadnt thought about it before ,but this is an art ,a talent ,and thoroughly enjoyed by us all .

I enjoyed  seeing the ladies,who had taken part in the Pantomime ,remember I took pictures ,they were all very smart and if I hadnt seen for myself ,you wouldnt have believed they were capable of some of the antics they had got up to ,remember the ballet dancer with her Tu tu caught up in her  knickers ,very smart intelligent  Lady totally out of character , you never know, do you what people are capable of ,but such good fun ,They were delighted with the pictures I had taken ,and I was asked if I was interested in joining the group ! Watch this space  !!

Maurice was off Monday Tuesday and Wednesday ,we went to Huntingdon on Tuesday ,where I bought some wool !a card for the camera I had bought for Maurice for Christmas ,and toiletrys from Wilkinsons ,quite what has happened to the rest of the week ,I am not sure ,but hey ,here it is Friday again ,and we are nearly mid way through January ,'Doesnt time fly when you are having fun 'So every one have a good day and a restful  weekend ...with Love From

Everyone has a story to tell, but you're right, there's some skill involved in telling it well. B. x

Hi Jan: lovely entry, and graphics. (my New Year resolution,  Brighter Blogs).  Look forward to your appearance in the drama group. I suppose it's like being an actress, not really `you' at all.  Shyness isn't an issue !  Bunny xx

I've never been good at story telling and hate talking to a group in public.  You're right....it is a talent.  Glad you're enjoying the WI, a lot of fun seems to be had at the meetings.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs,

My Dad is very good at getting up and telling stories like that, and making speeches, it is a bit of an art form isn't it :o)  I know I couldn't do it!!  
Glad you've been enjoying yourself :o)

I cannot believe how fast the time is flying by.  It just seemed like it was Christmas and we welcomed in the new year.  You really do fill your time with the most fascinating things.  I think that's what keeps you so young at heart.  Love your tags!  xx Chris
