Out my window
The reason I save
A Suffolk Girl
The saver of Suburbia
The children were already school age when we moved here so the friends I made through playgroups and Scouting were all left behind in Mid Suffolk. Once we moved here they went to school by school bus so I never got to meet people in the playground. I'm not a great joiner of clubs and all our energy went into the Suffolk Smallholders Society when we were involved ( C was vice chair and chairman for several years, I did membership for yonks and we helped to organise the shows too) so the friends we made through that tended to be spread all over the whole county. The Society no longer has a social aspect to it - sadly.
Anyway,I shall write the date of the first needlecraft group in my diary and see what mood I'm in on the day!
