I had some amazing luck this week....I won a brilliant gift /prize when my number was picked, randomly I stress, on DIL’s blog. My gift was a 60 days subscription to all the classes on Miss Art’s Paper Crafting School, on the net. I do not know where to start …I want to shut myself away with the computer and my stash for the whole 60 days …well 57 ‘cos I’ve wasted three days drooling over what’s available to learn and wondering if I have the right bits to do all the classes I fancy…I really don’t want to buy a lot of extra stuff as there is so much already inside these four walls. I have never ever done this sort of thing before…infact I have only done a couple of classes ... at the crop, when we have had someone there to teach. Oh yes …and what has the weather done just as I win this …switched from wet and /or overcast to SUNSHINE ….how can I stay in when its actually behaving like it should be in Summer lol.
I was trying to make this a shorter post, as I have blogged a couple of long ones this week already …..so ….
It is of my late husband, Pete, in the early 80’s or even as early as ’79.
A group of musician friends of his, agreed to do a gig for charity in the church hall …they met together to rehearse in the afternoon… this was to be the very first time they were all to play together. Some one suggested a tune …another called a key … the keyboard player counted them in …and they produced the most amazing music. A few teenagers who I knew and played in a band, snuck in to hear them and one turned to me and said …’How long have they been playing together?’ I looked at my watch and replied ‘Twenty minutes’ …he was totally lost for words and filled with admiration … sitting in silence for the rest of the session.
Oops …sorry …this was longer than I meant….I hope you managed to get this far.
I managed to visit just over 75 of you last week …great fun...except for the stiff knees and back lol …and many of you triggered ideas and gave me help …Thanks to all of you WOYWW friends out there …what a huge band we are now.... spread all over the world.
Take Care xx
