Friday round-up

It's a hotch potch post today: it's that, or no post at all.

Here are some of the things that have happened this week...

After consultation with you and Bakewell Quakers I chose some slogans for new placards for our silent peace vigils and had them printed:

They are plain and simple and will interleave nicely with the other more visually complex ones we already have. I realised when I was thinking about the placards that ones you have for a stationary silent peace vigil are different from the ones you might have on a noisy march, where the bystanders are the stationary ones and have more time to read them.

I had a rejection from the BBC for my sitcom, and am preparing my pitch to approach production companies. Onward and upward!

I met some women asylum seekers in Sheffield to ask if they'd like a day trip to Bakewell if it was arranged for them, with everything provided.  They were very friendly and very keen, so I hope very much that we (Bakewell churches) can give them a day to enjoy. Did you know that asylum seekers are not allowed to work and are given £5 a day on which to survive ?

On Twitter someone started a meme ( look it up, Pete) where people listed their first seven jobs. I joined in:

Then I tried to start my own meme which didn't catch on:

Ah well. Most of my dream jobs didn't come off either.

I had a super sax lesson this week. Last year I was playing what Mel called lots of mushy slush i.e. sad and/or romantic ballads. This year I am whooping it up. She presented me with a new tune called Big Girls' Blues with a backing intro like The Stripper and she said "Sue needs to open a can of seriously raunchy whoop-ass!" which creased me up.

The other person who creased me up this week was Lux. Here is Isaac's tweet quoting her:

And I don't think I've shown you this photo of her and Cece wearing the aprons I made them last year:

That's it. Have a great weekend.

Deciding to be happy whatever is the best backup plan I know.

Those girls are a joy.
