Another month gone so inevitably it means another long winded moaning post from queenie……HA that got ya!
Actually this has been a bizarre, weird up and down month.
It began with a court case of which I walked away victorious, my honour and self-belief restored, I believed in the human race again, justice was indeed my friend….this lasted about ohh a week before I had a mental jellified break down, through my toys from the pram, stamped my feet and vowed enough was enough and I was giving up!
My friends, being wise and knowing me, simply sat and waited, telling me to have a break, knowing very well that I, having been called the pit-bull in the past for always getting back up and fighting, would indeed get back up and fight another day. It took a couple of days before they were then moaning at me that I had not had enough time off!
So having analysed why I had this jelly like tantrum and realising that *I had too* was the answer, I had spent the last 7 months waiting, keeping strong, putting my life on hold for this case and when it finally happened I realaxed, I began my life again, I went out every day, and then I had a wobble…because I had to…simples.
So now, newly, renewed and invigorated I have my armour back in place and my queenly crown sitting at a jaunty angle, laugh as much as you like, in my world I see rainbows and no rain and as Dc Seuss once said, people fart butterflys..I like it bet you wished you were here!
So this month:: I am in chats with DDA WATCH in the hope that they will be able to have a stall about BSL etc, sadly the RAF can no longer come, sadly the talks with the RAF have fallen through as they appear, after 3 weeks of waiting to have a prior engagement.
Still waiting to hear from Help the Heros…think it would be good if they came, shows the community working together also waiting to hear from the W.I. Why I hear you ask well 2 fold..1) They do make exceedingly good cakes and also they are another generation involved.
The community police have agreed they would like to come along, hmmm will find them a little corner tucked away somewhere
The Agility is all going as planned thanks to the wonderful Wendy, who has it all in hand……boy do I love it when thing work out well…ie I have nothing to do with it!
The fastest recall is being sorted by the wonderful Karen Lawe, though I do need a small pa for that I may have one waiting in the wings for her.
The shows are slowly coming on..we have Zumba and toddler ballet plus (Fingers crossed) I have a little crew putting together a little show/play/song.
The Education page is slowly coming together and at last, I hope, people can see more about what I am trying to achieve.
The amazing Rachel Taylor has done an auction for us and raised over £300 So this means that the toilets have been paid for,(though we need more as that doesn’t include a disabled toilet) Hooray! And the insurance is now done another Hooray! I am chatting to someone about the generators however I can’t finalise any of that till I sort out the P.A systems cos it has to do with something called *Wattage* …… er no idea on that one….let’s hope I can find a lovely someone, fingers crossed the lovely Kirsty will help!
I have shows lined up ready for begging or to help others and possibly spread the word a little.
So far the list of dates are as follows
Thame Show 8th & 9th April
Newbury show, all about dogs, 14th & 15th April
Lambourn Vintage Show 6th May
Harwell Feast 26th May
Paws in the Park 19th May
Lambourn Show 25th August
Please do remember that it is only myself who is attending so if you fancy doing something, company is always welcome……a day off would be even better so if you want to do a show just let me know and I can give you a big hug and kiss (no tongues though!)
SO we now have 14 poss 15 rescues…we are full for rescues now.
15 businesses this does inc the police and vets kitchen plus two rides.
If you take a moment you will see that on the education page there are approximately 24 stalls, each stall needs a gazebo and most needs prizes of some sort plus each stall needs a minimum of one person to man it or woman it? SO again if you want to do something useful give me a call.
The wonderful Revolting Animals crew with the magnificent Cerburus is coming along to help me erect the gazebos….stop it now!
Oh and we have had our first advert in one of my local papers.
I am still looking into some more rides and entertainment, businesses and lots and lots of stuff……
I have decided not to stress out, it will happen, it may not happen fabulously lol but it will happen……I don’t have any time left to worry, as I have far far tooooo much to do from trying to raise funds, to sorting media, to designing adverts, posters and leaflets, to researching and buying, to drumming up businesses not to mention the building and making games and stalls, to sorting the bank account, begging and thankyou letters, arena shows the list is endless……stress what me……..nah!!
QUEENIE is coming home! Bring it on!
