I just thought I grab a few mins and type a ramble! It was good to meet up online this morning and have a chat and catch up with everyone. For me I saw some familiar faces and names and also a couple of new ones so was good and enjoyed the chat. I gagged Dolly downstairs and moved myself upstairs so I had no additional involvement of a singing African Grey!! I was joined by Rocky the Shih Tzu pup we recently took in as was needing a home due to what amounted to some sad circumstances. So he made an appearance now and then waving a paw!
I know when I contacted back last year about becoming an Ambassador for me I was thinking it would be good to get me out the house after what was a turbulent couple of years for my family health wise. I was thinking it get me away and give me something new to think of and use the grey matter a little on as well as something I had been thinking about for a while and was interested in.
Well Covid come along and put a spanner in the works as to actual meeting up and meeting new people. So that initial thought on getting out the house and having an interest and meeting new folk went out the window! I think that was a wrong thought for me really! I felt just as happy and involved and seeing old and new faces and names today as much as I would have if had been a live meeting in town or somewhere. For me the advantage today was good as I had to disappear swiftly at the end so apologies for not hanging around to chat, I had to take my good lady off for her annual diabetes eye test thing. If the meeting had been somewhere then I would have either to have left early or not attend as the appointment was important. So the online life worked in my favour today and can see it being just as fulfilling as I hoped it would have been just not in the physical sense of being in a room down the town, but I was at home drinking coffee and able to take part in something which I felt was worthwhile and interesting. I look forward to the next meeting! Does it mean come Christmas we can have a virtual meeting and party?!
I guess what am saying is that apart from it being interesting and great to see familiar and new faces today my thoughts haven't changed in that it has been fulfilling and is working for me personally albeit in the virtual world. I am getting to meet new people and chat with people I met already and slowly to get to know people. As we all know the world has changed and constantly changing with this virus. I hope one day we can return to some sort of normal, whatever that may be of course! But the virtual world is filling things in a big way and I guess pushing us more into embracing technology and getting used to it. Maybe not a bad thing as technology holds a lot more than we realise I find at times.
I bought myself a new laptop as after my old fav developing a noisy fan it was a good excuse to update and did partly use the excuse of well I do need this dear for the TinT stuff! 😂 I just have to not doze off and find the laptop has slipped off onto the floor as reckon that played a big part in the fan becoming noisy!
Anyway, I hear you all muttering shurrup by now! I just wanted to say was great seeing folk this morning and catching up. My apologies for diving off quick as had to go to Barton Centre with the wife for her eye pics. I just hope she smiled whilst they took them!!
