December 2021: Christmas Chips!

Photo by Engin Akyurt on

Deck the hall with portions of chips!

We will have 30 portions of chips to warm our hands and hearts.

We will have carols to warm the atmosphere (and our vocal cords for those of you who want to join in!).

We’ll even be warming our brain cells with a quiz.

The doors will be open to keep the air flowing, so despite all the warming you may still want to bring your big coat.

Sauces and chips will be provided when you get there, but please bring your own cutlery if you are a chips-and-cutlery kind of person.

Chris from BWP will talk for 15 minutes or so about where our donations of gifts are going and why they are so appreciated and needed.

Thank you to everyone for “chipping” in! Here’s to friend-chips!

Hercule Poirot’s Christmas by Agatha Christie

Agatha Christie’s seasonal mystery thriller, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers.

It is Christmas Eve. The Lee family reunion is shattered by a deafening crash of furniture, followed by a high-pitched wailing scream. Upstairs, the tyrannical Simeon Lee lies dead in a pool of blood, his throat slashed.

But when Hercule Poirot, who is staying in the village with a friend for Christmas, offers to assist, he finds an atmosphere not of mourning but of mutual suspicion. It seems everyone had their own reason to hate the old man…

WI Life Magazine

Did you see us??

I was in WI Life Magazine this month talking about the podcast that I started while shielding. It is called The Jam Pact and is inspired by the WI campaigns.

I also opened up about my experience growing up with a severe and complex disability.

Joining The Hive WI marked a turning point in my life and I owe you all a great deal for making my life so much better 🙂
