Creatures of habit
For a year or two now, I just haven't enjoyed my WI meetings. With the exception of a couple of really good speakers I have on the whole been bored stiff. Bored stiff to the point of nodding off in meetings. I decided that I wouldn't renew my membership this year. This has saved me £41 which will be added to the retirement fund.. That made me realise that without even considering how much it was costing me I have in the past simply renewed my subs. I gave up the wood turning club a couple of years back when there was a waiting list for new members. I had been a member for years and it simply became... 'what we did every wednesday'. I like to think that a new member would be joining with all the enthusiasm that Tony and I joined with all those years ago.We used to borrow 'the videoes' and poured over every book we could find on wood turning. We passed my lathe onto a family friend with the express instruction that it came back to me if it was no longer needed. I miss that little lathe and often wished I hadn't let it go.
