Fantastic Group Run to the American International Church to make beds for the homeless night shelter. We set off from the Living Center in good time and made to the church to meet everyone.
We had some difficulty in locating all the duvet covers, which was over come just in time as the quests arrive.
Thanks to first timer Alice for showing us the excellent burrito duvet trick!

Fantastic to be back at the American International Church helping with C4WS's homeless night shelter.
Its been over two years since we've been able to support the night shelter, it was great to hear from the task owner Jonathan how things changed during the pandemic and how they are glad to welcome us back, some great stories from GoodGym visits pre pandemic were shared!
Niki and Louise's bed making skills i the womens room put our work in in the mens room to shame, we had to go back and up our standards. We were however very proud of our matching duvet sets and sheets!
We're back at there for next weeks group run and at the beginning of December, do check out the Camden Group run listings and sign up!

Today I completed a small shop for Ms L during my lunch hour.
After a brief catch up with Ms L, I collected her shopping list, clarified a couple of points ("What type of bacon?") and headed to a local supermarket.
I fairly whizzed through the store, with the only delaying factor being a quick call to Ms L to clarify whether fine beans were an acceptable substitution for runner beans.
Feeling fairly smug, I headed to my old nemesis: the self service checkout. Don't get me wrong, I love a self-service checkout. However, self service checkouts do not love me.
Today's checkout not only decided that I had to enter each orange individually instead of en masse, but that the weight of my oranges were both liars and actresses. Despite only buying 4 oranges, this tripled my time at the machine, and led to the assistant exclaiming "Hallelujah!" when she realised that she was authorising my last orange purchase. I can only suppose that the relative popularity of oranges to other fruits has skyrocketed in the last few months (orange being the new snack), and that Sainsbury's has consequently decided to make them more difficult to purchase.
Regardless, I returned Ms L's shopping, change, and receipt to her before toddling back to work.
