Out and about

Yesterday morning I went to a Gedling Community Volunteer Managers Forum Meeting entitled 'Volunteers and The Law, I never knew how complicated things had become and also a bit stupid in my mind.Example,if you claim for lunch with a receipt that is fine but if you are given say £3 allowance for lunch you are deemed to be an employee in the eyes of HMCR

I went to Breathe Easy Nottingham in the afternoon.We were entertained to an excercises demonstration.I was worn out just watching!!

Last night I went to a meeting about improving the local enviroment.Subjects included:-improving /development a Nature Reserve & Wet Grassland area(Netherfield Lagoons),turning a disused railway track into a walkway and wildlife haven right in the middle of the community..I came away with lots of seeds for sowing which will grow into friendly plants for bees,insects etc and a bee house.The name of the group 'NAG.,and that's what they did(in a nice way) and I have been asked to join the group.Apparently they need someone who does not care about speaking their mind,I don't know why they asked me!!!!!!

This morning I went to my surgeries Patient Participation Group,s meeting where we discussed requirements that patients of the practice had put to us and a few legal issue.

All in a days work as the say.

This afternoon I sat in the garden with Badger just relaxing.
