Normal-ish Service Has Resumed!

Thank you all so much for your kind messages on my previous post. The antibiotics did their job and I'm happy to report that I am feeling much better than I was. I'm still feeling very tired but decided that it was time to get back to normal life so yesterday I met up with some friends to take some photos.

It was the first meeting of my new photo group so I didn't want to postpone it and I'm glad I went ... an hour outdoors taking photos blew away some of the cobwebs and the company of friends lifted my mood. The photo group is for people using their phone cameras and today was a scavenger hunt with ten words to find photos for. We met at 10 am in Westbury and separated to search for our photos as soon as I'd issued the list, meeting in a cafĂ© an hour later to share our results. Here are mine ....

The morning was a complete success and I've had messages from the others to say how much they enjoyed themselves. I now have a month to come up with the next set of words ... we'll be meeting in Trowbridge Park if it's dry, or in St James Church if it's raining.

If all goes well I hope to get round to read your blogs today. Don't worry if I'm not posting every day ... I'm fine but will be taking things one day at a time for a while. It's good to be back though!

    1. Thanks Mary-Lou. I really enjoy the scavenger hunts and these immediate ones are good fun ... only an hour to find the photos and then an hour for everyone to show what they found to the rest of the group, so over and done with in one morning. xx
