That was the noise that this week made as it rushed though! Anyone else notice the week went by faster than a speeding bullet?
It’s kind of taken me by surprise that we have school holidays upon us as of tomorrow. I’ve not organised much at all. That probably doesn’t surprise too many people though. Mr 6 is doing a crafty class one morning and that is about it. I’m sure we’ll take in a movie, maybe Te Papa and plenty of playdates.
I did catch up with the GP on Tuesday. Sometimes I wonder why we even bother to show up at the medical centre. After a bit of a wait (partly because I was there a little early, partly because he was a little late 🙄 ) I think I was in there all of 10 minutes. Most of which he was typing out the referral to a surgeon. So some more waiting to be done while I hear back for an appointment with him (or her). I decided to go public because when the gallstones aren’t bothering me it is like I don’t even have a problem. I’m not certain of the waitlist time but I guess that will be discussed with the surgeon. Waiting has never been a strong point of mine, but I think I better get used to it. 🙂
This afternoon I am meeting up with Beverley and Janine and best of all, Trace, who is driving down from Taumarunui I believe. She’s another lovely lass from Scrapbook Essentials forum. I tell you, it’s been so much fun to meet people in real life who you chat to regularly in cyberland. OK, it is a bit blind-date-ish too. But we’ll be right – safety in numbers and all that. 😆
Tomorrow I have an all day crop. One that I’ve organised no less! I’m sure it will all go well, but I’m always nervous about these things. For one, I’m hoping I get minimum numbers along simply so I’m not footing the whole rental!! That would not be so much fun.
The community centre is such a wonderful resource for us up here. The woman that co-ordinates the bookings raised the possibility of a regular crafting group making use of the facilities. I sort of shied away from the discussion beyond saying I thought it was a great idea. I’m not a great one on following through and was daunted by the thought that I might be in charge of something like this. However, I’m part of another crafting group which works particularly well. And so is a friend of mine who also lives up these parts. Ideas are being floated….
So tell me, if you are part of a regular craft group, how are things run? What things really work do you think? What things don’t? Do you meet weekly or monthly – or do you have another time frame? Do you have communal supplies or does everyone bring their own things with them? If you aren’t in a group, but would like to be, what sort of things would you want from the group do you think?
Yes, that’s right, i’m asking for some interaction. Feed me some mind food to mull over and give me your thoughts. Who knows, I might conjure up a wee thankyou here and there 😉
