Thanks for popping in. All the excitement of the past few days caught up with me today. Had a spot of G.E.S. all day. Let’s see if you can work that one out !! Tell you what – if anybody guesses this acronym, I’ll send them a £20 Clarity Gift Voucher. If, like the last time I played this game, when pretty much EVERYBODY guess H.E.F.T., then I will put all the winning names in a hat and pick one !!
I haven’t got a demo left in me, so how about a little picture gallery of the O.D.Team? I missed a couple of important people, (like Dave, Jayne, Debby, Leanne and Heather!). My bad. But in my defence your honour, there was a lot going on! A lot of people worked very hard, and I’m guessing they’ve all got a touch of GES today!
It’s the best I can do today. Pooped, as they say. GES. And an early start tomorrow.
On the subject of G.E.S., I also want to mention something else. Many of our guests in Ditton travelled a long way to join in. From Birmingham, from Cornwall, from Manchester. I also spoke to several people who were very unwell too; people with severe physical disabilities, elderly, frail people too. It must have required huge effort for them and their carers to get to Ditton and spend the day with us. But they did, and they were thrilled to be there. I could sense their pleasure. I bet they are exhausted today.
One young lady, Elisabeth, who has Cerebral palsy, was so excited that we had come to Ditton, because she actually lives in the next village, Barming. I spoke to her for quite a while, and she put it beautifully. She said something along the lines of “Groovi is brilliant. It is the first time ever that I can craft and make something by myself, unaided. I can get in the groove and create beautiful lineart. I spend hours doing parchment art and I forget my pain, which is really unbearable at times. I can’t believe you’re all here! All the people I watch on HOCHANDA! This is the best day ever!”
And that’s what it’s all about people!
Or should I say, “That’s what it’s all about: People.”
Love & Hugs,
