    Hope the payment comes soon. 

    The WI show sounds really interesting. In theory I'd love to be part of something like that - in practice I don't know that I'd cope...

    WI's are all very different SH.  I visited several in the area before deciding which to join.  You can usually go along to 2 or 3 meetings before making a decision whether to join or not.  Maybe ask a friend to go along with you and see how you feel.
