Such a simple subject, but it turned out there was lots to talks about.
We had a poll about favourite colours. The results were: 1. Blue 2. Red & Green. This was a bit odd, as we had asked everyone to wear clothes in their favourite colour – and there was clearly a love of pink. One member explained that, downstairs, the inside of her house was predominantly a tasteful green. Others chipped-in with comments on how they also liked green. We may have to review our voting system!
The homework was popular. Gyda is so pleased people are taking time to work on her crafts and produce some excellent results using basic bits and pieces.
Janice gave an update on the Carers Centre.
It’s great to have this venue available again. We anticipate our members will be popping down in the coming weeks. Their website is due for an update, but you can find some information here.
Gyda’s craft was creating a flower and a bee from paper. Very simple, very quick, very popular.
A jumbo selection of Pearl’s jokes:
Pearl’s tunes were: “I can sing a rainbow”, “Yellow rose of Texas” and “Hi ho silver lining”. I believe Pearl’s home must be full of fun, she has hundreds of jokes and a ready selection of top tunes. We hope she will not be spending too much time at her local gym, now that has reopened – the group need her input.
Gerry read “If I were a colour”:
Lynne’s quiz was about The Colour Green. Did you know the reason for wearing green on St. Patrick’s day is that legend has it leprechauns can’t see you if you’re wearing the colour. And if they do see you, they will pinch you!
Janet told us “When I’m old I will wear purple”:
Janet, who is not old, does like to wear purple.
It was difficult to fit in all the pictures in the Show and Tell session, but Janet managed it
David showed us a couple of his recent excellent paintings. I suspect he is running out of wall space to display them (we have two hanging in our house, while the group is not meeting in person).
Watch out for the sunshine… it is coming.
