I had my fourth visit with Miss A today. Here smile was as infectious as ever when she opened the door. We soon got chatting about how her week had been since we last met and as always she had the tv on in the background and I had the kettle boiling for a cuppa as we were both parched. I asked Miss A what it was she was watching on the tv and she said "its just the ads at the moment" and we continued to natter over our brew. It took us 45 minutes to realise that the ads were in fact on a loop which we both found quite amusing and was testament to how engrossed we were in our conversation. This was another fun visit to Miss A and I look forward to our next meeting.

Arriving at Foodcycle this week, the cooking team were overjoyed to see the huge volumes of donations that were collected by Gill, lots of fruit and veg and several boxes of mince pie's, most of which were topped with icing and looked delicious. I was in the kitchen this week and as ever enjoyed getting stuck in with the various tasks that needed to be done to provide this weeks menu. The kitchen team was somewhat smaller than it had been in recent weeks, but we got down to it anyway. The menu this week consisted of Mushroom and asparagus soup to start, vege curry with rice and roasted veg, a pre dessert of those tantalisingly tasty looking mince pie's and thrm my very own creation of mixed fruits crumble. A bit later Dani arrived with the hosting team to help look after the evenings guests with hot drinks and chats. I think the evening went well and I estimate we looked after around 35 guests throughout the session. Great task and well done team, across all functions.

Hightown was chilly tonight so the 5 of us were wrapped up warm. It was Musa’s first time out in his new black GoodGym t-shirt so it was nice to see it peeping out from under his coat once we got warmed up in the Methodist church hall. We enjoyed hot chocolate, coffee mince pies and chocolates while getting our hi vis from Maz, one of the organisers of the High Town Lantern Procession. And then it was time to usher the families into the procession. Martin and Duncan made an excellent job of stopping the traffic to allow the children and their parents to get safely across. Hill and Gail led the procession down the road with Musa helping to stop traffic at the side streets so that the children arrived at the square and gathered in front of the tree. We enjoyed listening to St Matthew’s School Choir singing Christmassy songs whilst we kept our eyes peeled to ensure there were no children near the road. We joined in the countdown and the lights were turned on 🎄 and it was time to relinquish our hi vis and return home.
