Some diarists were out with friends or celebrating on September 24th.

    I went to change and went out to a clothes demonstration at my aunt's house in Newbridge on Wye. I had an enjoyable evening and ended up as the model!

  • Planned for my birthday dinner at Maesmawr on Saturday night. Rang bowling alley in Shrewsbury and booked 2 lanes for Saturday.

  • Played whist (3 tables) and won 1st ladies (highest score)!! A splendid social evening.

  • Then off to the Black Lion, Hay, meeting friends for lunch to celebrate a friend's birthday. After a jolly 2 hours and a good meal we trotted into town to inspect "Cotswold's" new Autumn range (husbands beware!).
  • Our coffee group of 7 met today at the Black Lion, Hay to celebrate Janet's birthday, when the "birthday girl" is treated to her meal out. The menu was varied - 2 of us had guinea fowl casserole, 2 had poached salmon and 3 had mushroom and chicken in a vol-au-vent with sauce. It was a lovely celebration. Afterwards some went to Cotswolds (a dress shop) to look at the new Autumn/Winter collection.

  • We went out to a Japanese restaurant called 'Koo' just opened in Ludlow. Had a lovely meal - used chopsticks and tried speaking a little Japanese from the menu - very different. A lovely anniversary meal.

  • I came home from school and went to my cousin's 1st birthday party. We had lots of fun and I really enjoyed it. We had a chocolate hedgehog birthday cake.

  • I returned home, had a very late tea (9.15pm) and then my friend rang to ask if I would go out for a pint in the Conservative Club, as he felt he needed to unwind. We didn't get there until 10.15pm, and shared 3 or 4 pints, chatted with various friends and acquaintances and returned home about 11.45pm.

  • In the evening I read, and played games on the computer while my husband joined other ringers at Talgarth Church to ring a quarter peal in honour of the Vicar of Bronllys who is retiring at the end of September.
  • Went to bingo.

  • To the Severn Arms at Penybont in the evening for the weekly quiz. Third in the team event but managed to win a share of the snowball. Arriving home we were met by a large badger who gave us a disdainful stare before sidling off into the bushes.
