TREES PLANTED

Second Tuesday Book Club (Tuesday March 12th 2013) I’ve got book club on tonight and I have to say sometimes it is the highlight of my week. This month, we all read ‘In My Skin’. We have a very ferocious leader, who will not let us digress from the discussion questions until the champagne has been drunk and the dips have been devoured (funnily this always occurs right on 10.00pm) and tea has been served. Judy and Lisa. Judy and Lisa. We have a strict ritual for the evening and the smokers take themselves outside when Lisa gives the nod. Every so often (after a particularly boring book) someone will say ‘lets go to the movies next month instead of having a book club meeting‘, we all agree … and then nothing comes of it. Our books come from our local library,  some of us knit or sew during the discussions and very often the discussion will turn to green related topics. We all worry about our beautiful Earth. Sometimes, it is nice to just sit and talk and solve some of the world’s problems over tea and cake (not always homemade) but always served up beautifully. Slainte – Colleen

At the heart of every nunnery is, of course, charity. We love our partnership with the Brigidine Sisters and are impressed with their passion to give. That’s a long history of giving from these remarkable women, and we are not only benefactors of this kindness, as their other philanthropy does ripple out to myriad of other organisations as well.
