Well, it was thirteen, actually, in the drumming circle I attended last night. I know it sounds a bit hippy and to be honest it was - when we went around the room introducing ourselves, one woman described herself as a witch! - but it was a great fun. There was a nominal leader, but there was no pressure to be in time with anyone else. I didn't experience any trance state or euphoria, but there's nothing like hitting some really hard to relieve tension! So my first celebration for today is making new friends.
Elsewhere this week, I met a lovely local author who wants me to read a children's book she self-published a few years ago, with a view to doing something with it. As coincidence would have it, another writer has contacted me about a similar project.
Finally, I received a £25 National Garden Gift Voucher through the post. There was no note with it, but the sender seems to be a media company, so I can only assume it is a reward for a letter I sent to Gardener's World magazine. I'll go and have a look in WHSmith.
Have a lovely weekend, folks.
