Today was the official opening of the WI office on the Isle of Man. I am the federation secretary, which I took over in June.Its a busy post, but I think I am enjoying it so far.
The Governor of the Isle of Man's wife, Ms Katie Richardson, came to perform the official opening. She gave a lovely speech and cut the ribbon on the door. It was a lovely day, the sun shone and there was lots of creams cakes!!

Last weekend we went to Chester to see My Son Nathans final degree show. I can't believe that that he has finished his 3 year Art degree already! He is waiting for his results now so fingers crossed he gets a 2.1 as then he has a place at Liverpool University to do a Masters degree in Art history and curation
Here is Nathan with his exhibit all on a theme of blue as a melancholy colour and loneliness.
