Making the most of life’s opportunities!

Last night I was invited to a social gathering in a local hostelry. Now I don’t know about you, but at this time of year I’m very reluctant to venture out again after I’ve closed the curtains and put on the fire. This, coupled with the prospect of walking into a crowded pub on my […]

WOAPA cd recording

  On Saturday 20th October 2012 a momentous occasion, in my opinion, occurred. Approximately 150 adults and children gathered together in the main hall of a local school to record some of their repertoire for a cd. The buzz of excitement in the hall was electric. Looking around at the faces of those present, it […]

I’ve previously blogged about some of the experiences I’ve already enjoyed since joining. Brian and Lou, the lovely couple who run Woapa decided […]

My Scarecrow Challenge

Tuesday 21st August. Can’t believe it’s been 5 days since my last blog. The days go fast when you’re challenging yourself! My last post was cut short as I had to go and make a scarecrow to be used to promote Cogges Manor Farm’s Scarecrow festival this weekend. I’d had the idea for a Dame Edna scarecrow […]

Finally, after much frustration

Finally, after much frustration I’ve managed to get to this point in my attempt at blogging! All this social networking stuff comes easily to my sons’ generation, but it’s a bit harder for us oldies. 2010 was the year I started my new beginnings. After years of being a bit of a couch potato I decided […]
