When I am feeling a bit down I write short stories and poems.

Hence the two I have put up today :-)

I have 'my book' in rough form, one day I might even finish it :-D

When i was a child i used to climb trees & things and get the addrenaline pumping as i knew when i got to the top it was worth the effort, it raised my spirits and i could see for miles. Nowadays im a bit big for climbing trees in the physical sense of the word it wouldn't be adrennaline but fear pumping through me, but i do still climb trees family trees. It gives me a more sedated rush and now a branch is my limit when i get to the end of a branch i know its all been worth it as it raises my spirits and i get to see things a lot clearer once i'm there x

Other than reading, I might do a bit of transcribing for one of the 'Free(groups)'.

It's calming if nothing else and you feel that you might be helping future Family Historians.

I help others re finding their family trees. At the moment I have 3 people who once they had seen my work re my tree wanted the same for themselves. One lasts usually visits on a zsunday from 11am to around 2pm. She always brings a bottle of wine. We found that one relation is famous in his line of work so we are trying to get copies of as much as we can. Also discovered cousins that she did not know.
The other lady who is interesting has such a common name I thought it would be difficult but......
Strangly some of her relatives live in the same area as one of my cousins and his is strange.

I read, and enjoy this as much now as I did as a young child.

Well that is about all, I have a very sore throat, started yesterday and no better today. Fortunately my Sunday Lady phoned to say she had much the same so decided not to visit....makes sence to me.

Today my granddaughter in Belfast is being Babtised , we have quite a few of the family visiting so they are going to confirm why we have not visited, although my son and his wife already know.

Well. That is all for today, off to have some Meds and then back to bed, might feel better later, I hope so.

Bridget :-D :-) :-( <3

And sometimes a long walk in the fresh air followed by sleep.
