The Spinsters...as Vic likes to call them

Here are photos from the Christmas party with the Spinsters. As you can see we are a rowdy group. Now that I have a job, I won't get to spin with them on Wednesday mornings anymore. That really does make me a little sad.
Eating it up! We had a pretty good spread for the amount of people we had. It's just so hard to drag us away from the wheels....
This is Jo and she is just a riot! She tells some of the greatest stories. I don't know exactly where she's from but her accent is sort of rough and when she starts telling her stories it just cracks me up!I bought the same type of wheel Jean has and it's wonderful. She's sort of the leader of the group when it comes to learning. She wasn't there the first day I showed up but right away everyone said I needed to start learning from Jean. Pippa lives at the end of my street and she lent me my first wheel. It was great to learn on! She also has helped me with planning trips to France since she goes there a lot. YAY!!Pell, I'm sure, is telling us all a great story of some importance...not true, actually she's telling us trivia about Star Wars. She's from Scotland and we've sort of bonded over the fact that we're both foreigners. Plus, she teaching me all about what not to say. This is the wheel of another Jean and I just love how she put little sheep stickers around the bottom.

I've had so much fun with these ladies and I think that at times I provide them with some amusement. And when my job is over next year I can return to them...the Portchester Spinners have been a group for, I think, 30 years. They're not going anywhere any time soon.

Where does Vic come up with these names? He can't just call them The Spinners? Instead they have to be the Spinsters? I guess I prefer being one of The Bitches.

Looks like a fun group! Good luck and have fun with the new job. Can't wait to hear how it goes!
