By now most people will have read the newsletter and know I'm the recipient of an angel scholarship and a year's free lessons, and in case you didn't understand all the emojis... I'm delighted and very grateful I owe you all so much and I love the sense of humour and off the wall comments that fly around the forum, not to mention all the helpful hints and novel techniques. I'm looking forward to setting a record for the most lessons completed in one year once this exhibition is finished, although I suspect I'll get stiff competition there.

Val... I'm sorry I didn't acknowledge the scholarship straight away... although I did reply to Nolan's email. I've not only been frantically busy; I was kidnapped to go camping in the wilderness (ie -no internet reception), then, when returned to civilization I had internet/computer speed problems that would not allow me access to even PB; then I had a little brain collapse and got thoroughly muddled and forgetful - happens from time to time. (More speed and reception problems, only this time the recalcitrant machine is me)... and so on... However, not for one moment, did I forget the scholarship. It's been hovering around my mind like a true halo of hope and pleasure.
Gita, thank you for your good wishes.
I'll try and live up to the honour.


Annie.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear..... I do hope you didn't think you were being chastised Linley. Far from it, just a bit of tongue in cheek. I shall have to amend that.... next time less tongue and more cheek!  ;)    :2funny:      :-*
Cheers, Val

Of course not Val... I know you quite well now.... but you see, I was feeling quite guilty about not acknowledging the gift sooner, so I thought I'd better make some excuses anyway. :2funny:
I've been worrying that you and Sharon might take my comments on non-reactive people vs happy outgoing humans personally whereas it was really one of those digressions we aren't supposed to make on the forum...  the stern:Keep on topic rule.....Sometimes I write before I think.... Should :-X  ;)

I must have missed those comments... should I be offended?  :eek: ..... NOT!  :2funny:   Besides the rules are really more like guidelines...  :whistle:    ;D

Val.... with my present state of fuzzy brain, I possibly forgot to post it! That might be why I can't find either!  :2funny:
