Stans impersonation of a dormouse from the Alice in Wonderland extract was not to be missed either.

You have neglected to tell people where it is being held :?

Wish I could but I am still grounded with this new kitten, she has a bit of an upset tummy which I need to keep an eye on. I am hoping it is a case of food she is unused to, she had tuna for the first last night. :?

Mine go mad at the smell of garlic and onions cooking and won't leave me alone until I put some in a bowl for them, they don't eat it, just keep going back to smell it! :) :oops:

A really good Book Club night on Wednesday. A variety of subjects ranging from Ancient Ireland, modern poems, Egyptian storytellers and the lives of Egyptian women. Interesting discussions afterwards and plenty of laughs - looking forward to the next one - same place, same time next Wednesday.

The Book Club continues to thrive. Nice to see new faces last night and we had another variety of readings - Spirituality, Paul Doherty, Larkrise to Candleford, Omm Sety and Pam Ayres. A great night.
