Yet again, I find myself writing about clouds and silver linings.
Only now, 4 days after we were due to depart, am I able to write about this without grinding my teeth.
My holiday to Italy at http://www.arteumbria.com/ was cancelled.
I was the invalid, still recuperating from a minor operation, and looking forward SO much to a week of 'doing art' with tutors Andy James and Mark Kelland, and then enjoying a week of R & R with our friends, but it was my husband who developed a severe ear infection. Obviously, flying is a very bad idea in the circumstances. So we had to cancel the arrangements.
I'm not bitter. No. Not bitter at all.
The silver lining - the contract offered by Lysandra Press - is currently still in place. Phew.
