Come On In and Smell the Roses…

As Sunday January 22 was Homeless Sunday here in the UK and having given up the word 'procrastination' as my only New Years' Resolution - I was determined to throw open the doors to St M's Parish Church and having gone to the trouble of creating a feast of tasty goulash in polymer clay for the less fortunate of the parish - I was also determined to put those church mice to work that day. I should add that several of the mice decided not to put in an appearance that day as I could offer nothing stronger than a mug of tea and those who did finally brave the cold to serve up the hot lunch I had prepared and raised awareness and support for those who have no home they can call their own - well, they did me proud! However, as the Mice of the St M's Flower Guild were also nowhere to be seen and with neither the time nor the inclination to teach the basics of floral design to those mice I could see who were scurrying around; I decided to take myself off to find a quiet corner in the midst of all of this frantic activity and arrange the church flowers myself...

With THOSE Mice Away, Tee WILL Play… Some More!

Fortunately, the vision for St M’s Parish Hall has been realised and this old and quaint parish hall has been created as a place for celebration and busy social interaction for besides the Christmas Coffee Morning to raise funds for Shelter- a UK charity offering assistance for those threatened with the loss of the very roof over their head and a Big Brekkie during Christian Aid Week. We've also made  'Pancake Promises' for Lent... And we've offered a plate (or several!) of delicious cake during the 'World's Biggest Coffee Morning' for Macmillan Cancer Support...
