Yoga class has been reduced to 4 students and last 3 weeks there was no class;-(
On the first Saturday I was busy as in the morning I went to HH Library for a history walk around town by railway.
Then in the evening went to The Drill Hall in Horsham with my sister & J for a dance with the Milestone Big Band, with a basic cha cha class taught by Christopher & Diana Crowhurst
and then demo from same. Danced a number of cha chas with J & C. Went home with C to visit the family.
Two weeks later we all returned to the same location for an afternoon tea dance, which had a better selection of dance styles, and tea and sandwiches, for less than the previous offering. The 3 of us had a better time.
Saw Logan (15) at the cinema after work (met J from work there - unplanned).
Other sister H came to visit, from Somerset, and we went to visit my niece at her new house. Gave my sister my spare copy of "A Natural History of Dragons".
On second Monday went to book club to discuss The Peace War / Marooned in Realtime (had finished the first book but not all the second)
Had a bad cold, such that I lost most of my voice, and fortunately was assigned admin at work (rather than having to answer phone calls). Had more interrupted sleep due to coughing!
Ballroom Dancing classes continued every Tuesday, revised technique on the ballroom style dances.
Restarted regularly listening to audio books, via Audible (after a dip in February). Started listening to the Lady Trent's Memoirs which are perfect audio material.
Got diagnosed with Osteoarthritis, pain in my feet and fingers.
used up my last leave by taking last 2 days of the month off! On Thursday went down to Brighton and bought tickets to see "Thoroughly Modern Millie" at the Theatre Royal preceded by a tour of the back stage area. Something to look forward too.

Your April post hasn't shown up here, just on LJ. Should I comment on it here?

Also, the last email I sent you came back saying "permanent error", so can you send me an email with your current e-ddress? Ta ever so!

I read that Vinge omnibus from the Sf Book Club 20 years ago or so, but remember enjoying it very much. What did you think?

I'm sorry about your cold, & hope you're feeling better.

The dancing sounds lots of fun!

I hate it about the osteoarthritis. How severe is it? Do they have you on any meds? Have they talked to you about possible trigger foods?

The "Thoroughly Modern Millie" movie is lots of fun; how was the show?

I've enjoyed the Lady Trent series very much, & will miss it when it's over.

I looked up a veleta video; it looks like fun. You really get around the floor! [without having to get polka-giddy.]

Which normal pain killers? Long-term, there could be consequences. I'm assuming you're informing yourself.

Try the Thoroughly Modern movie, & let me know what you think.

Yay for potentially more Trent goodness!

Woot, woot!
