has happened just prior to the deadline of this week's news
and I have seriously struggled to get the issue ready on
time. The issue contains many more photos than usual, so
I have had to miss out one or two of the less time sensitive
articles which arrived during the week. My apologies for
this and I will run them next week.
weeks when I finish an issue of Wyenot News, I feel happy
with the result and other times, I do not. Although there
were a couple of articles in last week's issue which I felt
pleased with - in particular, the Broome Farm Classical
Concert and Goodrich Castle photos, on the whole, I felt
unhappy with the issue and utterly miserable all week as
a result. I tent to be quite a manic depressive person,
which I guess goes with the territory of trying to be creative.
works all day and night on Wednesdays and Thursdays, so
I spend two whole days alone after each issue of the news
and have too much time to think. It was not until Friday
when Tina and I went to the beautiful Rose Cottage Tea Garden
at Symonds Yat to see our friends, Nick and Angie that I
felt better again. Symonds Yat East is just beautiful and
the therapeutic effect of sitting under cover in the garden,
watching the heavy rain and the river go by brought me round
again. I thoroughly recommend visiting Rose
Cottage Tea Garden to watch the river flow, whatever
the weather and whether you are local or on holiday!
The problem was, I was very unhappy about the Rowing Club
article and worried about whether my friends who are members
of the club would still talk to me. I need not have worried
. . . !
week's Dragon Boat article produced more feedback than any
other article or photo I have ever run on Wyenot News. It
seems that it struck a chord somewhere and 100% of the response
was congratulatory. Even from long term members of the club
itself. The response came by email, MSN messenger and people
stopping me in the street.
everybody found it amusing. The best email I had said, simply,
'Thanks for the dragon boat article. It made I larff, it
I was annoyed at the time by what happened on the day. Making
people laugh was exactly what I intended by publishing.
you enjoyed it and on with this week . . .
