Tales from the undergrowth - part 14

Tales from the undergrowth part 14... I’m Back!!

It’s 2020. A New Year with new challenges. The Hall may well have had a much needed two week break over Christmas and New Year, but as the weather has been unseasonably warm. I continued to crack on and make the most of it. As ever, there were leaves to clear from the flower beds, weeds galore and Deborah’s fern garden needed much attention. It has all been worth it though as we are now seeing the first signs of the snowdrops and daffodils pushing through the soil and in the last few days the cyclamen have burst into colour. Who said January is a dull month?

And then, of course, January sees a plethora of TV shows both new and returning. The Masked Singer has hit our screens which is a hoot and Dancing On Ice, Love Island and my personal favourite Vera have all started. Who would have thought a woman constantly wearing a hat and a scruffy coat would be so popular? I’ve had new uniform for my days at the Hall. Who would have thought a woman in a baseball cap and a mud stained coat would be writing a blog?

But I digress. We were discussing January. We do have something coming up at the end of the month that may well bring an extra bit of cheer for ladies looking to end the month with a treat. On Friday 31st here at Stancliffe we are holding a Ladies night (every time I hear about it, I get the song that goes ‘It’s Ladies Night, oh what a night’ as an earworm. Who sung that? Could be worse though. Remember Baby Shark from last year. No need to thank me for reminding you).

So. Back to Ladies Night. After you enjoy a complimentary glass of fizz or orange juice (or a mixture of the two which is always nice) a catwalk show will kick off proceedings thanks to Izzi of Baslow and then there will be a chance to learn more about a variety of subjects including Confidence to Cosmetics, and wine tasting (I’m in) to Clean Eating. I’m assuming the latter is more to do with healthy eating and not how to use a napkin.

And believe it or not, you can get all this for just £20.00 a head and £5.00 of that goes to Helen’s Trust which is a local charity which aims to help people of all ages who are terminally ill to stay in their own home. So not only will you have a great night out, you’ll be supporting a local cause.

If you would like to join us for what will be a fantastic evening, tickets can be purchased by contacting Victoria on 01629 736956 or if you make a last minute decision to take a night out with a friend or two you can pay at the door. Go on. Treat yourself. It will be a top way to end January.


PS. It was Kool And The Gang. Wow. Had to dig deep to drag that up. Dig. Pun intended.
