Celebrate #7

What a great linky this one is :)
Thank you as always to Lexa Cain, Tonja Drecker and L G Keltner for making it happen!

This week I am celebrating:

1 - Yes I did it! I passed my exams - all of them!!  So I was delighted because I'd been so worried about the first one and in the end I received the same mark as for the second one (and rather amazingly it was a good one!!)  The relief when I found out - very happy me :)

2 - On the back of passing the exams I am now on the next phase of recruiting volunteers to train as Walk Leaders for the walks I have already begun which in turn would allow me to go into other areas which are asking for Nordic walking.  Therefore, I am looking into funding and working everything out and hoping that some people would be prepared to take up the challenge. At least I will start to find out what the future of my Nordic walking plans will be shortly.

3 - the event I am managing is also progressing with 30 contributors signed up so far - just a week left for them to sign up so I might make 40 you never know?  The leaflets have been printed already which is fantastic and well before schedule so I will begin to deliver out this week and I now need to think about those final things like name badges and table placements so any ideas on what makes events better please let me know - I'd be very keen to hear :)

Here's hoping everyone else has also had a great week with everything coming together - let me know what's been happening to you - you know I'd love to know :)


  1. Huge congrats on passing your exam with flying colors! I sure hope you manage to train some people to help so you can get more promoting done. I never held and event, except for a Medieval dinner - and my tip is don't make baked chicken for 100 people and accidentally leave one chicken atop the industrial stove, forgotten. At dinner time you'll have 12 happy tables and 1 pissed-off one.

    1. That was a chicken only half-baked at home and the table had to wait 30 minutes for it to cook the rest of the way. The stove was so tall that when I accidentally set it up there, I couldn't see it anymore. My one and only attempt at holding an event...

    2. Ha Ha - sorry but how hilarious although obviously not at the time. Lexa you crack me up!!! There will be NO chicken served - just tea and cake :)

  2. Well done on your exams! Sounds like things are going really well with the Nordic Walking. :-)

  3. Congratulations on passing your exams! Sounds like you are very busy with the Nordic walking events. I'm a walker too - along with a group of other oaps. But only in fair weather!
