First of all, I need to give credit - that lovely drawing of Paddington and the Queen holding hands that I added yesterday was drawn by East Yorkshire artist, Eleanor Tomlinson, and I gather it has gone viral. It's all over Facebook like a measles rash and it still makes me smile each time I see it.
Eleanor has said:
“The reaction has been so positive and lovely, it’s the best problem to have as an artist. It’s all you ever dream of, putting something out there that people take to their hearts and show their love and support for.”
Isn't that nice?
Yesterday was a dull, damp day and, although it was bright very early, now at nearly seven it is cloudy again . However, the forecast looks promising and some sunshine would be very nice. Fingers crossed.
My parcel arrived. It was a little, not very expensive video camera. I thought it might be a good one for practising and learning and it is easier to hold than the camera. I think I've got the basics although the instructions are less than complete and I've found certain things more by luck than intent.
Not I have to start using it and seeing how it goes. You never know - maybe one day I will have a proper YouTube channel rather than the kittle bit of closed stuff I have now. Unlikely, but you never know!
Yesterday was another 'at home' day apart from circuits. I did do a tidy but, right now, you'd never believe me, so that's on the list. Also on the list is Lindsey's Groove class and, later on, a trip into town to collect my new glasses and my back up pair of hearing aids, hand over my old ones for a service and new batteries before the warrantee period runs out and go through my list of questions, issues, etc regarding the new ones I already have.
May was an expensive month, for sure!
I've done something rather silly. Well, not exactly silly, but not something I have done for ages. I don't like asking people for money, even for a really good cause, and even less do I like it at the moment but . . . well, I've signed up to swim 5K in July. It doesn't have to be all at the same time (couldn't do that) and I've donated anyway but, if any of my readers would be able to donate a few pennies to Great Ormond Street, here's the Facebook Giving link.
(Fingers crossed that the link works because I'm not good with tech stuff.)
I've also started a JustGiving page in case people prefer it.
Now I have to ask how long the Nuffield pool is and work out how many lengths I need to do.
Phew - I feel tired already!
Time to stop rambling and get a move on. Have a great day, everyone. xx
