Memorandum Monday

I've been racking my brain (didn't take long!) to see if I have any firsts to report, but I'm not sure that I do.  I've been out and about quite a bit but there's nothing I haven't done before - lunch with friends, band practice as usual, photo walk along my usual route around the village, book group, games night and a couple of trips to the cinema.  But as for anything new ... can't say there has been anything ... unless ...
Does taking on the role of secretary to the band count?  As well as being one of the musical directors of the band I have also taken on the responsibility of the secretarial role.  I've performed lots of the tasks when I worked in an office in the dim and distant past, but this is the first time I've ever done these things for the band.  It's going to be interesting is all I can say!
Taking on the additional role satisfies my wish to do some voluntary work in my retirement (the band is a registered charity) but I still plan to keep my musical responsibilities as well.  It'll keep me busy, but I'll be busy doing something I love.
I'll be back tomorrow with more of an update.  Hope you're all well and are having a good week.
Linking with Sian at From High in the Sky.


  1. That definitely sounds like an interesting "something new" especially if it is going to give you some more stories to tell. I'd also say that going to the cinema would count, if you saw films you hadn't seen before. We can all always do with good recommendations.

    Have a good week Eileen

    1. I didn't think about the films. I saw 'The Danish Girl' which I'd definitely recommend, and 'Minions' which isn't really my sort of thing but the kids loved it!

  2. Good luck with your role of secretary, I was secretary of the band for a few years, it was hard work but very enjoyable.

  3. Sounds like something fun to do with taking on that secretary role; a little bit of diversion and perhaps learning some new things!


  4. Eileen I think your taking on the secretary role for the band is certainly something new (to you) & I agree with Sian, recommendations about movies always a good share (thanks for recommending The Danish Girl, it's on my list).
