Hello everyone, It is good to be back.
As you maybe aware, I took a posting break from about the end of January. It hadn’t been a planned break, but a series of events and hubby being incapacitated meant that my energy levels were low. I did though tutor two of the Pharos One-Name Study courses – Introduction to One-Name Studies (901) and Practicalities of a One-Name Study (903). Both of these courses will run again in 2023, in July and September, respectively, and then again in 2024, so if you wish to take these course this year, please do sign up, they are filling nicely!
I have also delivered a whopping 15 presentations and Book of Me Workshops. I have remained journaling and course writing, with two courses in the midst of being written, one is taking me far longer than I anticipated, because it is needing a wide range of researching – more on that in due course (no pun intended!). I have also been completing a series of presentations on Medical Genealogy – more on that later.
Hubby is back on his feet, walking without crutches and “moon boot” and is now catching up on jobs that he usually deals with – anything above 5 foot, gardening, pruning and lawn mowing. We also have trees in the garden, really large conifers that are likely to be over 15 foot. They have needed to be cut back for over a year, but we made the decision to remove them. We still have privacy in the garden and will be planting more trees to replace them. I always thought trees once planted lived for years, but apparently not. Coupled with the fact that a previous owner had over cut back and we had many brown (dead) patches.
In recent months I have completed five notebooks, filled with journaling, numerous notes, ideas and similar. I have missed writing here quite a lot actually, which surprised me and I am planning finishing a number of posts that are in draft format, sharing hints and tips for research, more posts on European research and I have some Q & A posts to do.
Tomorrow is the start of June and I am hopeful that the summer months in the northern hemisphere will be productive. We have lots to do whilst we have longer days and better weather.
I am disappointed to see that WordPress is no longer sharing posts with Twitter directly – so if you were also sharing posts via Twitter how are you managing? Until I discover a better method, I will share posts manually (if I can), alternatively, sign up to receive posts in your email, or follow by Facebook and receive posts in your newsfeed.
Until next time!
