I have just had a wonderful three days and it would be easy to forget we are all still in a precarious position (apart from the need to wear a mask from time to time!). On Friday, I along with Beccie, Theresa and Lorraine, enjoyed a truly great day out at Bressingham Gardens in beautiful October sunshine. Post to follow from Theresa. Over the weekend, Venetia and I travelled first to Stretham and then to Sussex to catch up with our family before we are all put into complete lock down again. I wonder what Christmas will look like this year? Probably rectangular on a computer screen as we communicate through cyberspace with our loved ones!
Talking of zooming, Beccie was really looking forward to the Hallowe’en Spooky night on Saturday 17th October. It was her chance to be a Dracula bride and go to town on the makeup. There would have been a prize for the best and most gory outfit. I look forward to seeing some of you on Saturday. I must apologise for appearing to be asleep in the picture Beccie posted of our last zoom meeting. It has nothing to do with the fact that Beccie was speaking – just a blink caught on camera! Lets try and make the meeting interesting by presenting yourself in sometime Hallowe’en. A pointed hat, some gruesome fangs, spider makeup or all 3!
Each time I write a post I try to be upbeat and positive but our return to St George’s Hall sees to move further and further away. However, I shall be booking the hall for the third Saturday of every month in 2021 in the hope that, as soon as we are able to return, we have a venue to go to. I have decided not to think about the themes for 2021 until such time as we know firm dates. But rest assured, our first meeting after lockdown will be special. We’ll glam up, splash the cash and have a ball.
We are now heading into winter and I am mindful that this can be a difficult time for some people at the best of times, but even more so now. If you need a phone chat or to meet up (abiding by the covid rules in place at the time) remember we already have volunteers in place. Contact us through the website and we will put you in touch.
Love and best wishes to you all,
