Latest Phoenix update.
Following a recent meeting with members of the committee; providing there are no changes to the Government’s roadmap, Phoenix will once again be rising from the ashes and returning, as normal on the 21st of June 2021.
We looked at some of the activities returning, following the Government’s guidelines, on the 17th May. However, there is still an issue with cleaning chairs. tables, light switches, etc. after each activity.
A letter will be sent to all activity leaders, so if you have any questions or comments you would like to put forward, please let us know.
The AGM will be held in January 2022 and membership fees will be due at the beginning of January 2022.
We are looking at ways to keep in touch with each other!-
These are Sue Breen’s thoughts as an isolated Phoenix member!
The Thoughts of an Isolator
Today’s todo list
Shave legs – The forestry commission will be proud of me.
Pluck eyebrows – First I’ve got to find them🤣 (Does that count as another job?)
Sort out knicker draw – sort in colour and size, grey is the in colour at the moment so those old white ones are now in fashion. (Could be keepers)
Clean oven – This thankfully was just a passing thought Phew it’s passed
Learn a language- My husband says I’m doing really well at this, he reckons I’m using words he’s never heard before🤣
The most important thoughts of the day have got to be :
What can I eat next
How long until lunchtime
I’m really looking forward to dinner tonight
Surely it’s got to be ok to open a bottle of wine at 6 o’clock.
Love Sue x
I am also going to be producing the Newsletter, as usual, I am looking for items for the pages.
Please send me your words of wisdom, quizzes, poems, recommendations for books or films, ideas for staying busy, (keep it clean), etc.
