Oh my goodness, I can hardly contain my excitement! Is this going to be our last online meeting? Will we really be able to smile at each other and chat away in the actual, real world? It’s been such a long time but they say absence makes the heart grow fonder, and my heart is feeling jolly fond. I don’t know if you feel the same but WoSWI has taken on a new importance in my life over the last year. With my world shrinking down to the four walls of my house, it was wonderful to have a regular connection with you all and to feel I was part of something bigger. Weirdly, I think I’ve actually been able to get to know you all better on Zoom than I did in meetings…and what a lovely lot you are. I just want to thank you for joining in and entertaining me over the months, and also for keeping the faith and renewing your membership.
Next (last?!) Zoom meeting June 10th 8pm
This month we have a personal stylist coming to talk to us about looking gorgeous whilst being kind to our planet. She’ll be discussing the life cycle of a pair of jeans and also showing us how to shop from our own wardrobes, rather than succumbing to disposable fashion. She’s going to be talking for a bit and then there will be plenty of time for questions so she can solve all your fashion dilemmas and clothing conundrums. Here’s her website, if you’d like to check her out
Next month’s meeting July 8th
You name it and I’m crossing it – fingers, eyes, wires, tees – that we’ll be able to meet indoors. I’ve spoken to the hall and they’re ready and waiting for us so it’s all down to Boris and the scientists now (Boris and the Scientists. Worst band name ever). We’re planning a relaxed and informal meeting to ease us back into public life, with much cake and chat. So far it has a working title of ‘Bakes and Banter’, courtesy of Sally Ann. If there are any hiccups with the road map and we can’t meet at the club, then we’ll arrange something outside instead.
We don’t normally have an August meeting but who even knows what normal is any more? The committee have decided to tear up the rule book, rebels that we are, and we’re going to be organising a big WoSWI picnic on the evening of August 12th. We’ll be meeting earlier than normal to make the most of the light but that’s about as far as we’ve got with the planning. Put the date in your diary and all will be revealed in due course.
Looking forward to Zooming with you.
