It’s Wednesday already, and I should be getting ready for a research trip to the Hampshire Record Office (HRO) in Winchester on Saturday, but I am not.
I have fallen behind with my preparation and I don’t feel I am going to be in a position to make full use of my time at Winchester, and that would simply be a waste of time and money. As much as I would like to spend time at the HRO and I am quite looking forward to another long train ride, I have decided to put it off for at least another week.
Instead I am going to spend Saturday catching up, not just on family history, but some housework and general filing. It also gives me an excuse to spend some time “playing” with Family Historian 4, whilst pretending to be updating it with information and photos from last weekend’s visit to Framfield and Blackboys.
If I feel the need to get out I can always head down to the Brighton History Centre for a quick bit of genealogical research that won’t break the bank (provided I stay away from the postcard shop whilst I am down there).
