down on the farm

We ate well and kept good company last Friday when we met at Mudchute Kitchen for our coffee morning. Very respectable score of 7.4 for the cakes, with the rhubarb and ginger sponge, strawberry sponge and the chocolate brownie jostling for top score. We had to walk off our excesses with a visit to Pets Corner - loved those ferrets and guinea pigs! - then strolled round the farm where we admired the animals and got up close to the Gloucester Old Spot. Janet knew just how to make her smile with a scratch on the head with a stick, though I'm not sure it would suit me. Everyone was envious of the wondrous vegetables on the allotments, not mine unfortunately, and our shed was investigated to check on the little stove for making tea. We carried on around the top path admiring the views and the wayside flowers, pretending we were deep in the countryside and dreaming about all the lovely jam we might make when those brambles ripen.

Perhaps we're all just country girls at heart after all.

goddesses hit the runway

Well, it was quite an evening.  Sharing names, and words, and flow.  We put our feet on the ground.  We thought about times when we were on a roll.  We had some music and some movement.  We chatted and smiled and let ourselves go.

Then we took flight.

Massive thanks from us all to Cate McKenzie for leading the evening with such energy and warmth.  If you want to spend some more time releasing your inner goddess Cate is running a workshop at Bromley by Bow Centre on 12th August.  More details available here.

july meetings: release your inner goddess

Come and join us for a workshop at our next meeting on 20th July with life coach Cate McKenzie and find out how to release your inner goddess and become more confident in day to day life.  Cate is passionate about building people's confidence and helping them to connect with and create the life of their dreams.  Who knows quite what will happen?  A group of women releasing their inner goddesses all at once -  surely it's bound to be heavenly.

We will be in our new home, St Margaret's House on Old Ford Road, and it's 7.30pm for an 8pm start.  We'll provide the tea and coffee, but do feel free to share any home made baking or bring a bottle.  Visitors may join us at a cost of £3.

If you feel like taking in a bit of urban countryside later in that week, come to our coffee morning at Mudchute Kitchen at 10.30am on 23rd July, the cafe at Mudchute Farm.  The farm is one of Europe's largest city farms and there are a wide range of animals to admire.  And it'll be interesting to test the cakes, of course.  Follow this link to find out how to get there.
