Just kidding around paint walling

On a freezing cold evening In Worthing we met up at one of our favourite task venues at Kamelia Kids day care centre. The team were slightly depleted tonight for various reasons but it was a warm welcome all round for my trusty team that did manage to come along tonight.

Drum roll .....

Rosalind Gillybean Paul Barbara Paula John

As ever, we had a warm welcome from Andy who is the caretaker there and basically is the glue that holds the whole place together. Andy showed us the area to be painted and gave us all the tools. There was a slightly dodgy moment where the white paint was mistakenly magnolia but Andy asked to continue covering over the yellow paint with the magnolia until next week when we can go over it again with brilliant white.

I do hope you enjoy the photos today ! We have Paul and John with their extending rollers, Barbara and Paula looking rather mischievous and Ros and Gill looking rather glam.......

1 short hour later we washed the brushes and scrubbed the drip marks on the carpet (!) before heading out for a group photo.... and thats when the fun really started !


Unbeknown to me John had made me a 'This is your Worthing GoodGym life' red book and filled it with photo's, memories and messages from my team. Its absolutely wonderful. I love it :) Rather unusually for me I was speechless when it was given to me by Andy ( shock , horror! ) If anyone would like to borrow this iconic item you are more than welcome to. Its a great read and momento of my journey with GoodGym and something that I will always treasure. Thank you to all for your lovely words and special mention to Mrs R who rallied the troops!

See you all next week for round 2 of paint walling :)
