For the first time, I've met a fellow blogger :)The lovely Denise, from Denise's Planet, was in Dublin for a while and we met for coffee and a chat. It felt like we've known each other for years and it made me feel the sense of community there is here among bloggers. A lovely day out. Great to meet you Denise:)
Are you losing followers?And at the start of the week feeling very energised and getting my newsletter out quickly, (if you'd like to sign up for my almost monthly news sheet about our work, please add your email address over in the column on the side), I noticed that I'd lost some followers and thought oops... I've not been doing any entries, people are leaving. Then I spotted this post from Inge at Desert Canyon Living which explains it and explains the fact that lots of people are having the same problem. I don't know what if anything I can do about it but I wanted to pass the information on to you.
Exciting plansWith excitement rising, our plans for Australia are coming together nicely. We will be stopping off in Dubai for 5 nights with a good friend whom I met when I lived in the Emirates many (many) years ago. It will be very interesting to revisit the place after such a long absence. The temperature out there is a scintillating 21 degrees C at the minute - it'll be up a wee bit from that by the end of the month - *heaven* - and among other outings planned, we're going to a garden party where a few musicians will gather with us for a bit of a session. Cannot wait. I want to start packing my case now.
But in the meantime, I'm dosed with the cold and have practically lost my voice. With 2 concerts looming next weekend here at home, I'd better get back to the sage and honey tea and some gentle exercises before panic really sets in.
How's your week been?
