I'm still webless, I'm afraid. The lovely telephone people went to the wrong cottage to connect me, and had the wrong mobile phone number for me. They've made vague assurances about next week. I'm currently in the library, where I get thirty whole free minutes to check several hundred emails and to post this.
Great to see so manay of you entered the competition below. I'll draw up a shortlist of five shortly and Lisa will pick her favourite, sending the winner a signed copy of her novel, Prince Rupert's Teardrop.
In the meantime, proof that I've left the city behind for a more bucolic, dare I say alternative existence, came through the letterbox by way of a 'Green Events' leaflet. There are some priceless (unintentionally) comic courses to attend, such as:
The Journey: Are you already in action but want to go deeper? (Oo-er)
An Evening with Gordon Smith: Why do Bad Things Happen? (Sod that philosophy degree - an evening would have done apparently.)
Five Animal Qigong Retreat (?!)
Fungal Foray - autumnal hunt for fungi with slideshow and feast. (Now that's more like it.)
Gentle yoga with Derek the Dog
But my own personal favourite is:
Workshop on Angel and Animal Communication and Healing - communicate with lost and deceased animals - post photograph and sample hair.
Obviously time constraints mean I can't do all of these. Any suggestions?
