By the time I arrived at Bellamys this morning John and Pauline had not only collected the seating but also arranged it so everyone would be able to view the poets. All I had to do was set out the food, organise the drinks and fluff around until our first audience members arrived. All 60 seats were sat upon so we had a Full House. I intended to capture all the audience but after taking one photo I was distracted and then just plain forgot!
Please excuse the poor quality of photos – I planned to take heaps but I was enjoying the readings so much I set the camera down and then it was a case of oops quick grab a photo before he/she sits down.
The photos seem to get blurrier as the readings progressed. I assure you no alcohol was consumed before or during the reading. You know that expression ‘a bad hair day’ well for me it was a ‘bad camera day’.
The poets, Sue, the audience, my catering mates, the Bellamys and my ever supportive husband, Barry, all made this event thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you all.
