Food Stuff!



I love tomatoes - but they have to be REALLY well cooked, I prefer black bits even.
I LOVE avocado and often have them together with my poached egg.










I am cutting dwn on bread and this is an ABSOLUTELY delicious, healthy alternative.
Beat an egg and add to cauliflower rice. Form this patte's and cook in coconut oil until golden brown.

I am working on a healthy corned beef pie!

February - catching up again.


One of the groups who help us out from time to time are Lockwood View
We are pioneering a project with the council which will see felled trees destined for landfill being dropped off in our village. We have wood turners who will either use any pieces and sell on or sell pieces amonst their friends at the Wood turning Club. Any wood left can be chopped up for logs - the agreement is however that no individual can benefit financially - all proceeds are to go to the Village Hall funds.



The group love company so the arrangement is we, the village hall provide lunch and anybody from the village can join the group for a meal - in this case corned beef pie.



On Tuesday the council are sending a team armed with chain saws and log splitters to chop up the wood the team stacked. 





We celebrated Burns Night - we had a teddy specially made for Guess the name - MacTavish!





A good start to the year - 2017 Jaunuary coffee morning made £126 - 2018 we made £270
Burns Night 2017 we made £130 - 2018 we made £240 so we are all ready £500 on route.

February is q quiet month so the decorator can get on with the hall refurbishment and the new carpets can happen.

Where did 2017 go?



As I sit here vegetating on the settee I am thinking about Burns Night - January 20th in our case. We haven't even had our Christmas dinner and January is on my mind. I guess this is part of being an organised type of person - or a mad woman? We have had another successful year here in the village with the various activities, workshops, walks, fund-raisers and festivals. I have been involved with. We have made a healthy profit, secured a couple of grants and give-aways which mean the hall is being re-decorated as we speak and new carpets on order.
We will be planning 2018 in the New Year, developing what has worked and trying out new ideas we are toying with. As always, all we do is a team effort, each of us bringing some different aspect to the grand plan. I always say treat people as you would like to be treated - it's all down to how we are with others - and other people have helped us take our efforts to a level where we have received recognition.

As ever I have plans for the new year - will they work? will they happen? I'll know this time next year!

Happy Christmas and best wishes for a healthy, happy 2018.
