We like to get the Oldies together at least twice a year, mainly so we know they are still alive .... no don't look so shocked, its a shame to miss a good *Wake* for no reason, if its a Crisp and Sarnie Wake we sometimes send our apologies, well its not worth the shoe leather on all that gravel, see those old girlie's up the back of the tables [i think they are all still alive] they are the eldest members of WIN the eldest is our Margaret she is 86 and unless she is off gallivanting on holiday, comes to WIN every week, ain't she sweet. *smile*
Anyhow, we have 4 official WIN meals a year Spring Buffet, Summer Sizzler, Autumn Buffet and Christmas Shenanigans [i just made those names up! Gosh I'm good].
I think the youngest member of WIN is only 21 now and she has been coming for two years!
I have to say they are a wonderful group of women and i can honestly say they are all my Mates.
Look at that scrummy food and you may note how i have taken that first pic's from the Pudding end, lol.
These evenings are always funded by us we don't ask anyone for money, our girls bring there friends along [all free] they stuff there faces and get a few glasses of wine down their throats and then i sting them into buying a raffle ticket, *Pand a strip* is my cry *git ya Many aaat* is another and it works, we raised £150 for KIN [Kids in Need] last month, yippee.
This is some of them turning up for the fun, they needed to get in early so they could get all the bestest seats.
Now to pay for all the things we do all year we have to raise funds, we do this in a number of ways. On of the things we do is snag some unsuspecting person to host one of our many fun days [its not much fun for the host as we trash the house and garden. lol] they usually make cakes and biscuits and put out doily's and stuff! mistake, because all the oldies come out of the framework for those sort of goodies............... funny how oldies can eat.
This lady opened her Garden for us [she has been a part of WIN for about 3 years] the things she is guarding are all donated for us to raffle off .........*Git ya many aat..... pand a strip* .....local artists came and bought their wares to show. About 70 people came that day! A 20pence entrance fee was collected and everyone enjoyed their time with us. So that's a bit of refinement in the Shabby window of life , oh and a we made a eck of a lot of money that day. Thank you so much Sue. and errrrm sorry about the mess and all those beer bottles.............s'nuffin to do wiv me.........

I want to raffle it off and make loads of money for these little ones, but as i am pants at making stuff i thought if i told you all about it you would keep reminding me to keep at it.
It's funny how i always assume it will be Minging and nobody will want it, :-( and that gives me an excuse to stop doing it......... so please nag me to bits about this as i know what i'm like.
Thanks for your support.
I took a couple of old Christmas cards and cut out the templates for this project.
I then took my monthly bit of Yummyness book, I love it cos its the only bit of style that comes through the post box, well this and the nectar points catalogue............. lol. :-)
I then chose the colour, all scrummy pinks............. 1 shirt, 1 pair of jammy bottoms [knicked for DD and she dont know yet, well i have only taken one leg off, tsk its not as if i have used it all] and a shirt from my Ds1............... he wont miss it and its the perfect colour, i just had to have it.
Shame cos he loved that shirt. LOL
Last but not least a piece of dark pink fabric i purloined a few years ago.
Love and hugs to you all and fanx for visiting. Mwah. X x X x X
