Remember way back in the early days of the challenge and I introduced you to the Demented Cats?
Well, the lovely group has grown and invited me back to Royston. So that’s where Maisy and I headed on Saturday night.
More parking on the M25 and we made it in time for bed.
I think you may be starting to see why I don’t do such a great job of keeping up with emails now, lol.
Anyway, running workshops for groups has its own step-by-step route to success so I thought I’d show you just some of what’s involved.
Wake up time is often 6.30am. After that there’s some driving involved to get to wherever it is that Maisy and I are supposed to be.
Step 1 – unpack boxes and boxes, and some bags, of ‘stuff’.
Step 2 – Get into venue and assess the situation.
Step 3 – Set up tables and chairs.
Step 4 – Set out supplies.
Step 5 – Make a mess and some pretty artworks.
Step 6 – Meet and fall in love with cute dog.
Step 7 – Pack up supplies, tables, chairs, and repack Maisy.
Step 8 – Do silly group photo.
Step 9 – Do sensible group photo,
Step 10 – Drive off to next challenge
Generally arriving at next destination in the early evening.
Phew, busy innit?!
The next destination in this case by the way is a garage near Brighton where Maisy is to have her MOT *queues dramatic music*
Long story short, sadly she failed it do currently I am taking refuge in a budget hotel until the morning when the garage ‘hopes’ to be able to have sorted things that need sorting,
Right, this just about brings us up to date I reckon so, as any good serial concludes, I have a cliffhanger for you.
Will I see Maisy again?!
Will Maisy get the operation that she so desperately needs?!
Will I get to Surrey in time for the three day workshop weekend?!
It’s a good job that I don’t live with a general anxiety disorder isn’t it … oh, wait, I do!!!
Please don’t forget that I am doing this tour in order to raise awareness of mental health issues and to raise money for Mind, the mental health charity.
