I’m pleased to say that all Phoenix activities are now up and running and the
attendance is picking up. Jeff will be running the Wednesday afternoon social
at Sheepfair. So don’t get the blues on a rainy afternoon pop down. There will
be quizzes, card games, etc or just a cup of tea, biscuits and a chat with friends.
The kitchen can now be used if and when
required and there are biscuits!
Deja vu. Is the feeling that one has lived through the
present situation before !!!
So I say welcome to all my deja vu friends.
I might start a campaign against the deja vu feeling.
You will have rules to follow to become a member.
Do not tidy your cupboards again
Do not sort out the garage.
Do not start baking banana bread
Do not paint the shed
These small steps are just the start of riding yourself of
the deja vu feeling.
The only exceptions to the rules are
Laughing (you may need to follow Joe Wicks exercises on
YouTube to achieve this, not doing them just watching)
PS if you do take part in online exercise there are also
some good YouTube videos on how to become a
The big plus this time is the vaccine, for which we are all
truly thankful, we didn’t have this at the beginning of the
year. So, while we are all looking for a top that has sleeves
that we can roll up to the top of our arm, let’s remember
that we can do this because we’ve done it before.
Is that deja vu?
Keep safe, take care
Love Sue xx

Chat from Me — August 2018
What can I say about the July Coffee morning! An outstanding performance from Lydia, Chris and Debbie, who sang songs from various musicals. They had the hairs on the back of my neck standing up, especially with their rendition of ‘I Know Him So Well’. They were young, professional and very talented and deserved the standing ovation they received. Anyone who missed this treat might get lucky as we have invited them back in December. So watch this space!
The raffle was organised by the Bridge club and raised £100 for Alzheimer’s research, this was a fantastic result.
