Paper crafting and more – December

Christmas is coming and the group got stuck into making a wreath from baubles. There was much hilarity as baubles ran away across the floor as fast as we tried to thread them onto the hangers. However, the final results were stunning and will definitely deck our halls this festive season. We are looking forward […]

Book Club 2 – December

Today’s choice was the much- hyped “Normal People” by Sally Rooney. The concensus of our meeting was that we couldn’t quite fathom why it was so praised as a novel not to be missed. Well written but an unsatisfactory plot and ending. We all agreed, though one of our members’ daughter loved it so maybe […]
