Went to the school reunion today. Its 60yrs old and a VERY posh convent school run originally by English nuns. four of my class were there. We left 38yrs ago! YIKE! I brought some pics of some of the girls aged around 12 and one of the nuns in full habit with the whimple and all!
It was hard. I was the only one in a wheelchair. The mass was long and I was jigging and jerking at the back. I walked out a few times as I was so self concious.
I did walk of course cos I can. My deafness meant that I didnt hear any of the mass nor what the classmates said to each other. I picked tiny snippets up.
I greeted with fondness two nuns I really liked. One who fed us in the refectory, Sr. Francis, and I told her her food was fab. One always remembers those who fed us eh?
Also a nun who took mags and I under her wing very early realising we were deaf etc.
I enjoyed it but it was HOT! I stomped the old hockey pitch and the class rooms but the second time I did I realised I was one tired lass so went and retrieved the wheelchair and packed up and came home.
Fan on, my chihuahua sleeping on my shoulder and I am happy.
Am charging my new camera (ginny!) and went to put the kit lens on which flew into the air, luckily I caught it. Great if it had smashed just out of the box.
I am glad I have it out of the box and plan now to 'get a life' after London.

Hi Ann,
 
Sounds like quite a day you had at the reunion! 
 
Oh, my heart lept when I read about your lens.... Oh man, that would have been horrible to smash a brand new lense!  I'm glad you're going to get out and enjoy your treasured hobby.  I use Canon cameras and lenses too.  I think they're fantastic.  You picked a really good kit.  Even better than the Olympus in my opinion. 
 
Have a great weekend Ann,
