I am supposed to be doing my reports, but.............

Nickie and I had to be at Writtle Agriculture College tonight for a six o' clock appointment. We were viewing the college to suss out its suitability for our Regional Day in 2011. As far as I was concerned it ticked all the right boxes for me. The lecture room with blackouts AND hi-tech equipment.Lovely gardens, it was like walking round 'Gardeners World'. A lovely restaurant at the end of this avenue of trees. Nickie and I were hoping to sample some of the food at the restaurant on July 12th, when they have an Open Day, unfortunately it clashes with F.E.T., we are having a study day at Snape Maltings.A wet studio where the students were hosting their art exhibition. Jo, who was showing us round, was very patient as Nickie and I took photos of their work, some very interesting items of clothing using sweet packets and magazines!

I am now going to be typing up the findings of our visit ready for our committee meeting next week- back to school reports tomorrow night.
Saturday looks as if it could be a verrrry busy day- Nickie and I have three exhibitions we want to visit before 3.30pm.
1. CHAT at The Guildhall, Thaxted.(10.30-5.30)
2. Essex Adult Community Learning Textile Exhibition at Northbrooks House, Harlow. Denise from Craft Arena is studying here(10.00-4.00)
3.Roothing Valley Quilters at High Easter Village Hall. (10.00-5.00)
We are also stopping off in Chelmsford to get some reasonably priced wooden beads that I found last weekend-I hope they are still in stock!

But you forgot to mention that all of that has to be done in time for me to get back to Lizzie's bar-b-que which starts at 2.30!! Not too sure how we are going to manage it all - but we like a challenge dont we? x
