Quiz night! Each Tuesday night, sauntering down to the pub we meet our team, the Ice-creams. Through quizzing we became friends; sitting beside them, recognising their northern accents we felt that link. We chatted; after a few weeks, united to form Team Ice-cream. Through the Ice-creams, we met the South Africans and soon we had a wonderful new circle of friends and quizzers. Pub quizzes are such fun, such a brilliant way to meet new people. We met the Am-drams and went to watch them perform, became their friends.
It’s really not the winning, but definitely it’s the taking part!
April 30th 2021 would’ve been Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday; in recognition and in remembrance of his achievement, a new challenge was announced by his family. They challenged ordinary folk to complete a hundred somethings to raise more funds for The Captain Tom Foundation – ‘whether you bake 100 cupcakes or walk 100 laps – help celebrate Captain Tom’s achievements.’ The official ‘Captain Tom 100’ has now finished, but I’ve challenged myself to write a 100 word blog each day for 100 days. I started on May 1st and when I complete my task, I’ll donate £100 to his Foundation.
