...Auntie has a good many lectures to give, and some new academic work...plus a lot of history projects, and some journalism. In August, Auntie will be walking to Walsingham on the John Paul walk for the New Evangeslisation - more on that in due course.
At Bogle Towers, some substantial house repairs, begun in 2016, will continue with a new and rather urgent project....this in fact starts immediately.
And then there are the groups and committees organising things...including some projects that cannot be abandoned and on which some people rely...
But meanwhile, Auntie has spent today, after doing the ritual taking-down-of-the-Christmas-cards-and-wreaths, on a fresh embroidery project. It's another kneeler for the John Fisher School chapel. (We have a family connection with this school). The school colours are blue and gold and the work is satisfying. I visited the school the other day. Some years ago my mother created a pleasing pen and ink sketch of the school, of which a limited edition was made, and copies distributed. The original, coloured in watercolours by my mother. hang in her room, and has now been donated to the school, to hang in the vicinity of the chapel.
