Two of our group had their birthday on the same day so we had 2 cakes, one carrot and the other ginger. It's become a tradition for the birthday person to be DJ for the day by creating playlists and finding the music on the computer. So this was shared - 5 songs each, repeated throughout the day. One had made a jumper into 2 hats for them both and a skirt that he wore - 'birthday pixies'. It was a very jolly day enjoyed by all.
Now that lockdown is at last gradually lifting, we're looking back on the past year with a sense of achievement and a committment to a future together. Even when we couldn't meet, Roamers stayed in touch by way of our post card project (details here) -- we've posted most the them here. We shared paintings and drawings and photographs from Toby, Suzi, Jon and Not Just Any Girl. Keep an eye out for a new video soon with more details.
