What?, its February!!! Gosh hasn’t time flown this year. Because we are independent thinking women we thought we would have our Christmas do in the deep dark days of winter which is when after the heady days of New Year and Christmas with the family, a woman needs a treat, just for her. So this is what we did, we had lunch, and a very pleasant lunch it was too.
But before lunch we started with breakfast. The Almanack does look after us extremely well, being able to toast the odd slice of bread just when you fancy it is quite appealing, especially on a cold and damp February morning. There was a very good turn out, it was so nice to see so many of us. I’d received emails from those that were unable to make it so I knew they were there in spirit if not in person.
I’m often staggered by how this group is growing, with such warm, good humoured women, who are a pleasure to know and meet every week. My thoughts sometimes wander to that day in August that I sat on my own willing people to come and join in the knitting fun, never in my wildest dreams did I think it would grow into something as wonderful as this. So I would like to say thank you to each and everyone one of you, it is you that make the knitting group as amazing as it is.

Sadly not everyone could join us for the meal, but the 13 that were able to (and how’s that for a spooky number!) enjoyed our lunch at The Green Man who did a fantastic job, the meals were all superb, you couldn’t fault them. And being it was 2 for 1, there was much merriment when it came to pay the bill. In fact, there is talk of a repeat at Easter, which I think is a very good idea.
So, Happy Christmas everyone and may all your knitting dreams come true.
