New Year and January News

Our Social Calendar has been fairly busy since getting back from Christmas in Fraserburgh. It kicked off with bringing in the New Year at the British Club bash.

Despite getting home in the wee small hours, had to be up again and raring to go for 11.00am on New Year's Day. It is the annual Scotland -v- England football match in Awali. This year's match was tinged with a bit of sadness. We were missing the Scotland's team long time manager, who passed away in October last year. The match was started off with a minute's silence in John Kerr's memory. It was a good match, evenly balanced but the final score was Scotland nil, England one.

The next couple of days was getting up to date with all the Cally Society stuff, especially for our forthcoming event - Burns Night on the 23rd of January. As well as getting ready for starting my new job as a nursery teacher.

I like this working lark, this week worked Sunday and Monday, off Tuesday and Wednesday for religious holidays and back to work on Thursday then off for the weekend. Only wish every week is going to be like this!!!!!!!!

Only crafting that has been done since the New Year is the Order of Service for John's Memorial Service on Friday.

Now those are done, I need to get down to getting some cards done for the January birthdays.
