How's your week gone?
They seem to fly by don't they?
I've been enjoying a
creative writing workshop
creative writing workshop
here in Arundel.
Maybe one day I will unleash
my stories on an unsuspecting world.
Probably not, ha ha ,you're quite safe.
Too busy decoupaging fish and shells on chests of drawers.
The workshop is a lovely small and friendly group.
Great fun, it's very helpful and inspiring.
Run by an ex- journalist.
Do you ever become an ex- journalist I wonder?
Or is it one of those things in your blood that never leaves you?
Anyway, we have a couple of glasses of wine in the break.
The last part of the evening passes in a flash
and we usually go out the door chuckling over something.
If you are local and have a burning desire to write
email me and if a space comes up Ill let you know.
There is a fairly new networking group that meets once a month.
Up in the old jail house in Arundel High Street
That's an experience in itself.
Its a great space.
Here's what Jailhouse says about themselves.
You can hire it...for parties, weddings, etc etc
Come and experience one of the South East's most unique live entertainment venues. Located at the end of a hidden passage away from the hustle and bustle of the High Street the Jailhouse is Arundel's best kept secret. Passing through the iron cell gate and into the lobby guests get a feel for what it would be like to enter a real Georgian/Victorian prison.
Anyway ....networking group.....
useful, friendly doesn't go on for hours about rhubarb....
If you are promoting your local business or want to find out
what's happening in the town, its well worth going.

Mangan AntiquesWe have friends...yes we do, really....Julie and Rudi, at Mangan Antiques,who have a lovely warehouse full of interesting vintage and antiques decorative pieces.
They are in small village called Runcton near Chichester.
One of their specialities is chandeliers, and they also hire out vintage crockery etc.
By the way, they will also rewire and repair your own chandelier.
They are a great source either for something lovely
for your own home, or trade buyers,
and no I'm not getting a commission. LOL

They have done up Arthur Crofts old place ,a real treat.
Gutted it and opened it right up.
