Lavender and Daisies.

Greetings People,

Got two fabulous quilling books the other day, one by Jane Jenkins and one by Diane Boden Crane. Both have much to offer any quiller. How Diane thinks up all these things like the chocolates - which are amazing - is beyond me. Jane's book is slightly more arty and has wonderful fairies and angels in there. They have already got my imagination going and am thinking up Christmas decs as I write.

We finished our NLP course and am now a qualified NLP Practitioner... anyone need a phobia sorting?

Expecting my mum to stay on friday, she will be here for about a week. It will give her a rest from ironing Nick's shirts and cooking his tea. Though to be honest I think doing these things keeps her going, shes not doing too bad for 89.

Dreading tomorrow, I am going to the hospital to see a guy about my shoulders. I am so fed up with not being able to move them properly, can't put them behind my back which makes dressing /undressing difficult. Am so sick of moving like a 90 year old instead of a 48 yr old.

Neuro LInguistic Programming or just NLP

Hi Folks, for the past 6 days John and I have been on a very interesting course in which we are learning to be NLP Practitioners. We have been at the home of Joe and Melody Cheal who are Master practitioners and have been teaching us and also 8 other people too. We are a diverse lot, there are social health professionals, project managers, a communication lecturer, RSPB managers, HR professionals and us, who are basically doing the course because we feel it will help us personally.

Today, we wrote our first trance. Learning how to use the correct words positioning them in such a way that as you are listening to them you begin to relax your senses, and your internal and external sensations. Starting off with a normal sounding voice and slowly softening it and pausing it. Making you go deeper and deeper into your relaxed state. Thats right..

Then of course we had to bring these friends out of the trance, I mean I could hardly leave them there could I? Could I?
