Bee, More Masks and Greenham Women

22 May

The bees are busy, we are glad to see. This one was moving around all the Lavender pots.

Our eldest was due to come from Exeter for a couple of hours this afternoon to fix my Beetle. In exchange I made her a couple of fabric masks. I had not anticipated how hard it would be to see her but not be allowed to hug.

Elastic is running short

My spirits were lifted by a wonderful zoom session this evening, Greenham Women singing songs of the time, all led by my lovely choir leader, Claire. In between singing the songs, people shared their stories of being at the various gates, all given colours and each with a very distinct personality. A couple of the participants had been there with their Mums as very young children. One Mum and daughter were there together from their different parts of the UK; participants came from allover the country and were really inspiring. It was a brilliant session.

    Your masks look very nicely made–and lovely fabric!

    Finally hugged my granddaughter on her 10th birthday. Could not resist. You are fortunate to have the virtual choral experience. Something to look forward to! xoxo

    That’s a great way to be together- the zoom session I mean.
    And then it is hard to not hug. That part is not nice

    That was very restrained of you, I’m sure I’d have been giving my daughter a hug!

    It must have been very hard to see your eldest from a safe distance. I hope the Beetle was fixed and that it won’t be too long before we can all hug again!

      Thank you for your love! It was much harder than I thought. Actually, I hadn’t given it any thought until I couldn’t! The Beetle is happy again! Love to you . 🙂
