At last people! Lots of them, painting, weeding, chatting and laughing. It was good to welcome a big work party from Axa Insurance last month. They tackled many jobs that have fallen by the wayside since Covid 19. We send them a big thank you and hope they were as glad to see us as we were to see them.
It was a particularly cold day when the humans came in for steaming hot cuppas and biscuits. My canine pals and I studied every crumb being quietly consumed until someone broke the silence with “Why don’t dogs blink?” Haha, fooled you! We do blink, but the long soulful stare guilt trips most people into sharing a tasty treat. Apparently our meaningful looks stem from the way our ancestors, the wolves, communicated with each other.
Thanks are also due to Elaine and Sheila who raised £252 by taking part in the Hadleigh Yard Sale.
SESAW volunteers are attending several festive events in November, two on the same day. Lorraine is running another Pop Up Stall, 8am-1pm on Saturday 13th outside Don Tyler’s Opticians in Tiptree, CO5 0HF. Get there early for Christmas gifts/cards, homemade cakes, knitted items and pet goods. Meanwhile, on the same day, Jeanette is back with her Terrific Tombola, 10-4pm at Bridge Farm Barns, Monks Eleigh, IP7 7AY. Later in the month on Thursday 25th, Sheila will have another classy selection of gifts at the Long Melford Christmas Community Market, 10-1pm at the Old School, CO10 9DX. All three ladies take great care with presentation and value for money so please call in if you are able.
It’s dinner time according to the clock – which is still on the kitchen wall although Mum said it had gone back. Most confusing but there are more important things to worry about, like fending off Daisy, the other tea drinking little dog at SESAW that takes second place to me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua.
