so finaly finally i recieved some responce to the mil.ion emails that i wrote to different companies about intern ships and voluntary work and what else not and nottingham city museums and galleries responded to me inviting me to the volunteer open day so this is what happened.
the open day was held in beautifull wollaton hall.  some people might rcognise it from last batman film as it was mr batmans residence.

this beautifull place where i would not mind living lol is on top of a hill surounded by deer park and a masive gardend and a golf course. u know seemed prety straight forward get bus nr 34 from city it has stop right next to one of the gate,  claim the hill and be there but no its too much to ask. well i got to the bus casualy driving away obvious get out a bus stop early needed walk half a mile till the gate.  when i got to the gate there was massive sign stating warning the deer rruting season is on,  they may get very agresive if your in their area. . my first thought i gona get kiiled by an angry deer. always a good way to go.  lol.  so gether my self and start walking up the hill at least only see deer far away in the golf bit but i still keeplooking around and snaping pics cos my phone was not videoing proper just in case i die before i reach the safety of the garden next to the building. cos no deer is alowed there lol

noticed that all pics have a bit of bluriness to it?i was not for stoping to take a pic cos i dont want to die by a deer killing me lol.  as i got closer to the building there was more people ther so felt a bit safer lol.  when finaly got trough the door there was quite few people out about i was like standing there where do i go till this nice museum lady aproched me saying that i look confused so she just told me to go in the hall bit and wait.  there was about 10 people all together for this open day.  they took as all trough to this small room like a mini library bit realy nice room where we got like a small presentation of all the volunteer projects happening then they gave us like 15 minutes to have some tea and cookies wile we fill in forms if not done so before they had really nice chocolate ones must note lol then they gaves us all times to come back for 1 to 1 interview.  i had about half an hour to wait so i just quickly went trought the museum bit. first i saw these amazing stuffed birds they had like all these differnt things really reminded me of the natural history museum in latvia that i used to love as little kid.
