I spent eight hours last Tuesday with my friend Jane working on a Power Point Presentation for the Queen's Birthday coffee morning!! We got photo's of the Queen from when she was a wee lass to now and put them together in a kind of celebration of her life (I'm not too sure how I ended up doing it since I'm not a huge fan but hey ho!!). The coffee was on Thursday last week and the apartment it was being held in was all decorated in red, white and blue - it looked great!! About 60 ladies turned up and we used a projector to put the presentation on one of the walls so that everyone could see. It went down a storm and we actually had people asking if they could buy a copy of it so I think we will probably sell some and try and make a bit more money for the welfare pot!!
Leanne from Operation Smile came along and we presented her with a cheque for......wait for it.....500,000 baht!! That's how much we raised from the Combined Women's Lunch....isn't that fab!!! To do one operation costs roughly 10,000 baht (The doctors give their time for free so the costs are the medication, the hospital stay, speech therapy etc) so that money will enable 500 kids to have a new start in life....a job well done I think!!
Since it was the Queen's Birthday coffee there was also Pimms and wine......it all got a bit messy in the end and Jane ended up back here singing Karaoke with me!!!
