I am feeling quite tired after what feels like six months of socialising in the space of a few days! The day after the wedding I went to the 25th birthday party of the choir I used to sing with. In my day we were a community choir with no auditions and do-it-yourself performances but now they have moved onto bigger things. The party was in Kings Place, a new arts venue near Kings Cross station. The building was lovely and the evening was great but not nearly enough time to catch up with the 20 odd people that I hadn't seen for about 8 years! My voice was hoarse and I was getting a bit fed up with repeating the same information time and time again! I was also not very good at walking in my sandals with a heel and was disappointed to see that the venue had few seats and we were expected to stand all evening!
This week I have been at a the College of Occupational Therapists annual conference in Brighton. We are manning a stand in the exhibition with the aim of promoting our courses and the University. It has been successful but relatively hard work as we have been busy. I have also been delighted to catch up with colleagues I haven't seen for several years. A good bit of reminiscing about old times and our drunken exploits at previous conferences had ensued although this time I have been 'tee-total' as alcohol seems to make my hot flushes worse!
