Enough events have accumulated in Real Life since the last time I wrote about them that it’s worth posting another summary.

Having enjoyed the two classes I did at the WEA last year, I recently booked for three more — “Singing for Beginners“, “Great World Thinkers and their Great Ideas“, and “Drawing and Painting in the Botanic Gardens“. Unfortunately the last one has been cancelled, so I’ll only be doing the first two.

One reason to do these courses is to meet people and hopefully make friends, and indeed I have established private communications with one other member of the class. The “Great World Thinkers and their Great Ideas” class starts on the 27th of May.
