I teach 4 (sometimes 5) classes a week and the topics of conversation that take place are varied and entertaining!
To give you an idea, here are a few of my favourites:
English football (the less said the better!)
The Great British Sewing Bee (and the 'unique' dress code of one of the judges!)
How hot and wrinkled Egyptian cotton sheets can get (don't ask!)
How to treat achne!
How to get rid of garden snails!
How to disable your hockey opponent!
Birthing calves and lambs (& babies!)
50 ways to deal with an unhelpful doctor (un-printable!)
Of course there are many serious and thought-provoking conversations too!
Today one lady said 'getting old isn't for wimps', which was swiftly followed by murmurs of agreement from around the room.
I've just had another birthday, and while 'half way to 90' isn't old, neither am I young.
|My daughter and nephew also celebrating birthdays this month!|
One of our recent chats in class was about how to get through life with a positive attitude, seeing good and bad times as an opportunity to grow and learn, and how to have courage to live life with intention and purpose. How inspiring!
Doing life, and doing it well, isn't for whimps! But each week my ladies turn up to class with a smile; they laugh, chatter, encourage, cajole, drink tea, eat biscuits and even sew a little!
They are choosing to do life, and do it well. There are certainly no wimps in my classes!!
Thank you ladies for sharing your thoughts, talents, hearts and authenticity each week.
Wishing you all a creative summer break!
