Dear Dr. Keane I was speaking to someone about that training I was telling you about because I sort of was under the impression it would have happened by now from what I was told. Obviously things changed a bit and need to be discussed further, no problem there. It's the fact that I actually phoned to make sure that I wasn't being forgotten about. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Nothing was said except an explanation for the delay, then later more work schedules, so all good. Perhaps it's because I don't often do things like that. It wasn’t until afterwards that I felt bad about chasing it all up, seeing where I stood, making sure that what was agreed wasn’t forgotten about. I sort of feel like it may have been wrong of me to feel so anxious, especially afterwards. I know that what I did
was something good and the easier option would be to have sat back and not done anything about it. At times I do wish I could just take the easier options, but I equally know that then I would not grow or experience things or get anything done. I hope that we catch up in chat some time soon. I understand though that you've had a busy work day. You asked me if I was still writing (I am sorry that I forgot to answer that). I have not written in awhile. I told you I would tell you about the Edinburgh Fringe Festival I went to. that you said you were looking forward to and I ran out of time to tell you properly before, sorry. It's the largest arts and cultural festival in the world and runs every year in August. People come from all over the world to see it and to take part in it. There's comedy, drama, dance, song and street entertainment. People who are now famous started out at this festival as they began to carve out their careers. You actually get a mixture of new performers and established, famous people taking part. There is also book and international festivals that run at the same time. Venues are all over the city, in theatres, pubs, marquees, halls, speigal tents (they are famous and ornate, very unlike any ordinary tent). I saw a comedian from the USA and then a presenter/author/comedienne from over here. I got to meet her afterwards, which was fun and special. I hope that we can catch each other in chat. If not, I certainly look forward to your response and hopefully chatting another time if you are still very busy.
