Vanessa's  JUNE Offering

Hello Ladies

When I announced that I was going to be talking about funerals last month I was slightly concerned that I might scare you all off and I'd find myself talking to the committee and a bunch of puzzled chaps from the bar. Thanks to all of you who took a leap of faith and turned up though. And many thanks for all your nice comments. I'm glad that you found it useful and you now know a little more about what's available. The ladies from Adams told me how much they'd enjoyed meeting you, too.

This month we have a health and well being theme. Our very own Marianne Tracey is going to be talking to us about the benefits of Pilates and doing some exercises with us. She taught a few of us how to walk properly on the way home from a trip to a pizza restaurant and it was fascinating!

The second half of the evening is down to all of you. There are many ways of looking after your mental and physical health and well being, from exercise to meditation to craft, and I know you all do all sorts of different things. Lets have a bit of a sharing session so that we can inform and inspire each other. What do you do to make yourself happy and/or keep yourself healthy? Do you belong to any groups? Do any interesting activities? Have a way of dealing with stress? Do a sport? If you feel you might have something worth sharing, come and grab me at the beginning of the meeting and I'll put you on the list. I'll only be asking you a few simple questions  so it shouldn't be scary. And if you have something you'd like to tell the group but are already coming out in a cold sweat just thinking about public speaking, how about you write it down before you come and I'll read it out for you?

I know we have a fount of wisdom and experience in our group so I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas. And it will be a great way of getting to know each other better.

I manage my stress levels by going out and having fun, and what could be more fun than a Jaunt with Jenny? There are still a few spaces on the trip to Eltham Palace on September 14th at a cost of £26. Bring your money along to the meeting.

Looking forward to seeing you all

Much love
