Chairpersons Chatter

Hello you lovely lot, and if I might say, looking a lot tidier than the pre hairdresser/barber reopening rabble that I encountered on my last correspondence (I CAN see you you know!)… STOP that right now!!
So, firstly, news.. Our lovely Jo has been quite poorly and in hospital so send lots of positive vibes their way and I would imagine a phone call or two would be nice too. Get well soon Jo and make sure you get John running around after you. I can just see him now in his nurses outfit. Oh, hang on. No. My imagination doesn’t QUITE stretch that far…
So, have you heard that they want to lock down all those of us over the age of 50? So that will leave Winnie and Elliott to run riot on our behalf– have fun guys. Sorry if I have insulted anyone under the age of 50 but since I’m nearer 60(but not there yet thank you very much Zeph) my memory is not what it was.
I have had a lovely trip up to Northumberland to see friends recently, which we do every year, but this year we really didn’t think it would happen so we felt very fortunate indeed and had lots of fun.
Apart from that I have been busy making masks and my poor, cheap as chips, sewing machine has done sterling work. I’ve really enjoyed it and feel I might invest in a more flashy model of machine when all this is but a distant memory (well, we can live in hope).
I think those of us present at the workshop with Leisa Rae from the UOoGB will agree that it was really enjoyable and that we learnt a lot. It certainly gave our esteemed MD plenty of food for thought… I am just envisaging your terrified little faces!! Don’t panic, there literally is something for ALL abilities.
I have managed, in a socially distanced manner, to see a few of you actually in the flesh which has been lovely. Zoom, although an alternative, is not the same as you don’t get the same frisson of excitement that, at any moment, someone might actually try to hug you or invade your personal space! The very notion.
Anyway, I have been in touch with Joan Pybus a lot and she is going through a tough time with her house sale and it has caused her untold stress. To the point where it is severely affecting her physical health so I would ask you to think of her in these tough times and wish her a swift and uncomplicated move. Hopefully within the next couple of weeks.
OK, I think that’s all so you can all wake up now and go and do something more interesting. I’m sure there must be a sock drawer that needs sorting…
