This has been a weird and frantically busy week, things that have been 'pending' for ages are finally successfully completed but other things that have previously been just vague possibilities are now uncomfortably real and needing action, some family friends have been having a hard time, but for others the sun is shining and life has taken a turn for the better, up and down and then my computer dies ... hopefully there is some hope of resurrection but no luck so far... I am so used to everything being 'just there' on my PC that I feel completely disorientated without it and it's hard to focus on all the basic things I do with a computer, like updating this website, even though I don't need to use that particular computer at all.
On the dancing front, this week's Tuesday class was such a lot of fun - though perhaps not the most successful from a dancing point of view. We had the largest turn out of the year so far, including a lovely newcomer and returnee guests, but very few experienced dancers so it was perhaps not surprising that my little masterclass on diamond poussettes was enthusiastically enjoyed but not desperately successful - we didn't really have time to go into the details of it for everyone - but I love a challenge - and as long as the process of trying is fun in itself it hardly matters if it takes a few weeks to get there. We did manage to get Christmas at the Heath danced as the final dance - although we scrapped around a bit to get 7 couples so late in the session - but it's definitely been added to the list of 'dances we like' so the night ended on a positive high, and that it always the best way to go.
