Greeting from a very English girl…….

there has been lots of rain here, river banks are briming

I am having a lovely time here in the heart of England. On Tuesday evening, after a lovely walk in the country during the day with plenty of stops for tea, I went with my sister-in-law to the local church hall for the flower club evening, ok, stop your laughing, this is what you do in the countryside when you are,er a lady of a certain age. It was actually very enjoyable. The evening started out with tea and cake of course. Next, the minutes from the last meeting were read (Blimey, it aint ‘arf formal) then it was on to the fun bit called Ready, Steady , Flower arrange! Yes, speed flower arranging, what a hoot.. A bucket of flowers, choice of container, pair of scissors, ten minutes….go…. Best one by vote wins.

this got my vote

    • No we were just there to observe the experts. However, they did ask if anyone had ideas for raising money and I suggested naked flower arranging like the calander girls. That got a big laugh!

  1. Looks like fun! We “old” ladies have to keep busy, ya know…book club, flower club. As long as there’s tea and cake and occasional wine, we’re happy. Glad you’re having a good time. You’re not going to come back with one of those pesky English accents, are you? 🙂
