I would definately be up to the residential weekend being held at the hotel in conventry. The Academy suite seems to be the perfect space to hold such an event.
I really, really appreciated Nick and her ever patient Husband Si for all the help and assistance they gave me over the weekend of the Dinner Dance - carrying my bags to the room, cutting up my chicken for me (
), untangling my seqiun top when it kept catching on the velcro of my wrist splint
, getting my mobility scooter in and out of the car etc, but next year I have persuaded my hubby to come with me no matter what.
I must admit that I did find the weekend quite stressful and I had not been in a good position to pace myself before hand as I had lots of hospital appointments and a 3 hour hair appointment in the week leading up to the weekend and the morning of the Dance I woke up to find that the ceiling was starting to cave in in our utility room where the bathroom fitters had not fixed the pipes properly, and there was water dripping through the light fittings
. I ended up having the start of a bad Migraine on Monday morning and broke down in tears in the middle of my accupuncture session as the pain in my neck was so bad
Next year I will make sure I take a couple of days of work before and after the event
Hopefully I will get to see a load of my fellow bendy bods again next year ........
