Well I finally went to my first class and very enjoyable it was.

The evening started well by meeting a new friend again, she had came into shop a while ago and we got chatting, I found out she lived very close to me and I gave her my number. Well needless to say I never heard form her, I am the same you get given a number on a piece of paper and than forget all about it. I had just parked my car and she drove up , I mention this because it is just funny how life puts people in your path for a reason and if the first time it does not succeed it tries again and I think this time it has and so we went to jive as newbies together.

I am not sure how I felt , nervous, no not really , I was hoping I would A, not fall over, B, register some of the moves C. be relaxed enough to actually speak. D. have fun.

There were people with partners and people on there own but that did not matter as all the women covered around the outside of a circle and all the men on the inside. Introductions were given and we were off for the first moves, they were mainly experienced and I wonder if he had thought about having beginners and than a more experienced class, as it must of been quite boring for the experienced ones. He showed the first move and off I was jiving, well, in my head anyway.

The evening proceeded and after a few attempts you moved around the circle, very enjoyable. I was given the compliment I had natural rhythm, which I already knew , but I kept getting told, to stop leading which I did not realise I was doing and to relax more .

The interesting thing for me was the leading and yea I suppose I do take control or try to take control of things and so I am looking forward to being able to be led as I think this will help me in my every day life too.

I have an upcoming birthday , the last few years I have chosen to forget them really but this one I thought I would actually organise something but in true Helen style it has gone pair shaped. Though I am not to upset as they are good friends and who am I to stand in way of them having the chance to see there loved ones in UK. So do I go for a plan B or do I actually sit up and read the signs that have been coming my way, not to plan anything and just see what happens and stop worrying and go with the flow.

Writing club starts next Tuesday, I have been some thought to that and wondering what I should take to do. I have started a book about my life the last 2 years however I have wondered whether to do a selfhelp book of sorts or even a saucy fiction, must make a decision soon or may be take all my thoughts and get advice at group , either way should help. It may even help with my blog writing which would help to.

It is raining, funny how upsetting it is to see the rain on a Sunday afternoon, I started this post outside but now I am as is my washing.

A big billboard has disappeared from one of the routes upto my hill side retreat (home), It has upset me, I know very weird , but the thing is when I first came to view this place, the billboard had a name on it, and well I saw it as a sign that this place will be good for me and than when I drove past I saw it had gone and I never took a photo of it . I am thinking of walking down there later and see if it has just blown off and see if I can take a picture of the name.

Well let the birthday week commence, ok, let the birthday month commence.

Go for the saucy fiction, Helen. I reckon that's where the money is. Happy Birthmonth. Eggie
