Slight Disappointed

I had planned to visit Cleobury Mortimer and choose some new lingerie ready for the concert today. Good job I decided to telephone first. The shop I use is closed until the 19th June. Oh well some money saved and I can make do.

So I will endeavour to get ready for afternoon tea in aid of a charity event this afternoon the other side of Oswestry.

Next on our agenda is to try and find a b&b near Southampton for 4th July as we are going sailing again for charity.

I love being out on the water and really enjoy the ease at which I can relax. Financial worries are all forgotten the moment I leave the shore. It is an amazing feeling and Steve appreciates the break too.

At Cowes Week last year I tried new sailing skills and was glad I had a go. I will never forget that experience.

I love meeting new people and trying new things. I hope the weather is nice.

I was torn between a sailing opportunity and a writing opportunity on the same day as sailing had been booked for sometime I felt I had no choice but to stick with existing plans. I hope I haven't made a wrong decision.

I suppose I can always write about my sailing experience when I return.

So my big plans have been thwarted but small ones have replaced them and I am making do, saving money in the process which is not a bad thing.

I am looking forward to next week's writers meeting. Can't wait. I have finally completed my chairman's challenge and am really happy with it.

Best wishes



  1. The sailing sounds wonderful! I'm so envious, do write about it afterwards...hugs..

  2. Choosing new lingerie to go to a concert! And there was me thinking that when women threw their knickers at their pop idols, it was underwear they'd had for years!

    But yes - write about your sailing experience. How would you describe it to a wheelchair user who'd never been? What does it feel like? What advice would you give them when they go sailing for the first time? Ooh - there must be at least 3 or 4 articles in that!


  3. Simon what are you like?!!!

    I have never been to a concert in my life so this is a huge first for both Steve and myself. I can't imagine me throwing underwear at Ronan.

    I won't be using the wheelchair when I go sailing. I will try and manage without any of my aids.

    I tried to manage without them on Saturday and left a stick leaning against a wall -- SILLY ME. The car wasn't parked far away so I was able to manage that short distance without my sticks hence I left it behind. Luckily for me it was a friend#s house so I can retrieve it today.

    I have been sailing twice before and love to get out on the water. I will definitely write about it as soon as I get back.

    Shame I will miss the Writers Bash.

    Best wishes
