And a mince-pie-tastic time was had by all...

Ding-Dong!! Our Christmas get together was as brilliant as all the others and a wonderful way to get us in the mood for the festivities...

First off, we were in our new home - the Weston-super-Mare Museum and, it felt very much like home very quickly! Special thanks must be said for the wonderful staff who made us feel welcome and who were such a great help while we were setting everything up (round of applause please!!). 

Our lovely new home

We were overwhelmed with magnificent mince pies (and I rather liked one in particular with lime icing (worked a treat with the rum!) in fairness it was the only one I had but is was rather brilliant!). Well done to all those ladies who joined in and well done on some spectacular baking!

To accompany the mince pies we had some mingling along with a mooch around the museum. It was a real treat to have enough space for everyone to move around and take the opportunity for a chat and it was a bit of a novelty for us Committee members to be able to join in with the meeting (usually we're running around like maniacs trying to find chairs!)...

We then had a spectacularly difficult Christmas Quiz, followed by a marvellous make-a-long where we demonstrated the art of turning jam jars into festive tea-light holders (details on the Make Log). Those 'making-a-long' created some beauties!! (our members are a truly talented bunch!)

Our lovely WOWzers poised and ready to Make-a-Long

And that was it, our fun-filed festivities were over!

So, be sure to make a note in your diary for Januarys meeting where we will be joined by face-yoga expert Danielle Collins (who is hopefully going to be able to assist in repairing the damage inflicted by the excess of Christmas) and we'll continue the theme with a variety of health and wellbeing topics.

We look forward to seeing you in the New Year....

..... Happy Holidays!
