There is something very relaxing about Poetry - especially when it is read aloud. For me it is not something to read quietly to oneself - it is for reading aloud. Not so many of us at our monthly Poetry today, but it is quality not quantity which matters and we had a lovely afternoon.
My morning, which started out quite relaxed and pleasant did rather gather momentum as the morning went on. The bank, the Post Office, the Solicitor, all went swimmingly until I arrived home to find that my gardener had put all the grass cuttings and weeds into my grey (i.e. rubbish) bin - being on the farm we had no need for a green (garden rubbish) bin. So I went on line to order a green bin (22 pounds per annum) - this took me such a long time because my computer seems to have mixed up all the signs. Each time the council form told me to put in my e mail address, instead of putting in @ when I pressed that key it printed "
- later at Poetry I found another person who had had the same problem this mor ning with the same two keys. Just now, trying to print the pound sign for the top of this paragraph, when I pressed the pound sign all I got was #. Can anyone please explain to me exactly what has happened? As it seems to have happened to someone else I am assuming that it is not necessarily my computer. Any ideas?
