The dreaded lurgy and news..............
Over the last few days I have succumbed to the hideous cold virus. I dosed myself up with vitamins for months before starting work and then on Thursday it hit with avengance. Viruses always go for the jugular or my case the larynx so I sound like a dalek. I had a terrible headache and a temperature. I dragged myself into work on Friday and managed until lunchtime by which time I was flaking out. Over the weekend I flet worse but by today I thought I could go to my Child Protection study day. I managed until after lunch and then had to go home again so tomorrow I'm staying in bed!!!!! The study day was really good despite me coughing and sneezing over my colleagues. Did you know that approxiamately 20% of suspected paedophiles in Britain are women and that despite popular belief some sexual predators are young people themselves? It was a very thought provoking and disturbing day at times. To anyone with children on the Internet just make sure they are aware of the dangers and you protect your comoputers as much as possible. It was scarey some of the ways perpetrators groom children on the net.
In news Elle's studio are holding a journalling course in August which is free. As someone who is often unsure on how or what on occasion to journal, I think this will be a g8 course to follow.
Shimelle's course on taking better photographs is going well, although my stinking cold has limited the pictures I have taken today and over the weekend. Also I only have a point and shoot digi camera not a DSLR so have limited choices on the things I can alter. However I will give it my best shot.................ooh cool pun.
