I’ve been out of action for a while due to muscle problems flaring up again, also having to prepare a slide show for my village WI. When first asked, I was told just to put my photos on a memory stick, little did I know what a problem we would have. After spending hours on it each day for quite a time, we had to admit defeat as the photos just wouldn’t stay in the date order that I wanted. We wizzed up the M5 to our daughter in Bristol and she sorted it all out for me, thank goodness. After that we went away for a few days to Scotland and just got back a couple of days ago. This break was booked the day the undergardener got the” all clear “from the hospital in Exeter after his radio therapy treatment, the holiday was for him and we spent a few days travelling from Inverness each day, twice behind a steam loco and a diesel on the the other day. I can see a couple of posts coming from our trip, but at the moment, our little church is hosting a flower festival which I thought you might like to see, the theme is Hobbies and Pastimes. Other churches were asked to participate and it is amazing the variety of hobbies that are represented. I should have been doing an arrangement but wasn’t back in time, so there isn’t one representing wood carving!
The church looks really beautiful with so many floral displays, I really wish I could have been part of it but decided that the undergardener came first. I did my bit by baking a few cakes which were put in the freezer before we went away and acting as a steward today ! Refreshments were available for the three days of the festival, so everyone from church helped in one way or another, making it all a great success.
I will soon catch up with all your posts, there are so many for me to read!
