Another flying post..

Well it's Monday morning and the sun is shining and the sky is blue after torrential rain earlier. I would like to go out and enjoy the spring flowers and pleasant weather...
but before I go out to Chris's this afternoon, I need to send a few emails regarding an Easter marketing campaign to people I don't know at all, update the church website, finish a web page to sell tickets for an upcoming event, try to move forward a storage system which needs to be accessible to people spread across the country from the Scottish Islands to London...
Later I need to grapple with a pricing structure for selling books in Mongolia, and did I mention the database I'm trying to sort out - only 3000 items to look at...

In the real world, I had a lovely birthday shared with friends, and celebrated with some colourful flowers



We have also booked a holiday to Egypt in the Summer and I'm hoping to get a new mobile phone next weekend to replace my current one which keeps switching itself off without warning... I'll let you know! - Now must write those emails!!!

So, a quiet day then? :)

About the storage system. I am intrigued. Can you say more about it?

Unfortunately the storage system is not really as exciting as all that... I on the Board of a Charity Trust, there is a large body of information which needs to be stored safely but also needs to be accessible to all the Trustees as well as people in Mongolia!! - unfortunately this Trust has had bad experiences with electronic storage before my involvement. One person involved has mentioned filing cabinets in every email he has written in the past few weeks (really quite a lot of these...)
There needs to be a solution which involves both physical storage in a particular location and some electronic storage to aid accessibility - no one seems prepared to make any decisions and it's driving me slowly crazy!!!

I love the colours in the flowers, they are magnificent. Thanks for sharing.
And Egypt? Isn't that on your list of things to do? That's cool!

Yes Egypt is definitely on the to do list...I've been waiting nearly 20 years now - we had planned to go in 1989 - just about the time I got pregnant with David... Hard to believe I might finally get there!!!

Ooh that's really exciting then. Do you have a list of what you want to see? What will the weather be like then? Will you see the Nile and visualise Moses?! Can you go inside a pyramid? Those are the thoughts rushing through my mind. Mind you, it's before my morning coffee...
