Hello lovely U3A people,

You know the expression that begins, ”Just when you thought it was safe ......”?  The committee has been working towards starting to reopen some of our groups, when it seems we’re suddenly back to square one.  As I write, we’re waiting for advice from U3A national office which should clarify the most recent government guidance.  That is, if the government hasn’t changed its mind again by the time the guidance is issued. I do hope we’ll be able to meet soon, in the meantime Zoom is our helpmate. Let us know if you need any Zoom tuition.

I hope you’ve been sending your lockdown tales to Margaret and Jim for inclusion in the newsletter. If nothing else, it may demonstrate that we’re not alone in the madness. My most recent “senior moment” involved footspray and hairspray.  I’ll leave you to guess what happened, just to say, I have the most beautifully styled feet anywhere.

Just be careful out there,

Best regards,

Viv

Hello lovely U3A people,

I hope you’re all surviving our current predicament in good health and looking forward to the time we can get together again.

No doubt we’re all having new experiences and some time in the future we’ll think, “I wish I’d kept a diary.”  I have made some diary entries. Mostly they seem to concern food. I’m not sure why that is but a psychologist would be able to explain it. We’ve always tried to avoid wasting food but we’re doing it now more than ever. So, when I spied a packet of Weetabix at the back of the cupboard and an overripe banana I just knew there would be a recipe on the internet. Unfortunately I forgot to put the egg in the cookies. Having tasted a couple and a day having elapsed they hit the bin. And promptly bounced out again! I exaggerate, but not much. If you ever run out of tennis balls I’ll send you the recipe.

Kind regards,

Viv
