Island Cafe Reminder
on! Again, some debate about the weather, but it looks
good. If there is a small trickle of rain, we will shelter on
kindy deck. If there is much more than that, I shall cease to
a fan of Willy Weather, which seems to have been reasonably accurate so
far. We have been promised two cakes, and some biscuits, so
should be plenty of sweet stuff, and hot chocolate, as well as coffee,
a selection of teas, and chai.
This week’s existential exercise
is again for those of you struggling to bring up children in today’s
ugly, untrustworthy world. The cafe is a familiar, friendly
place, where the children know the people serving. Why not
your progeny a taste of independence, and let them come and order and
pay for their own cake, or a homemade, child-sized, chocolate
biscuit? You can be sure they will be sympathetically
received. Of course, pirate money is not acceptable - it has
be cold hard cash.
See you Sunday!

Go dry. Help adults living with
few of us islanders have raised our hand and pledged sobriety in July.
Crazy you think. A lovely glass of red on a chilly winter evening… not
for 31 days? Yep, we’re off the sauce for a cause.

we’re going further. We’re challenging YOU to join our Dry July team to
help a most worthy cause. Think about it. Bet you know someone who is
living (or has lived) with cancer. Dry July is all about making those
lives just a little bit better.
This cause is close to my
heart. My husband Iain’s Mum died of cancer. I never got to meet her.
My father-in-law was a survivor. I have friends who suffered, some
didn’t make it, some did. One is waiting to find out. Plus, two friends
of mine started Dry July and have worked unbelievably hard for it.
