Fat Tuesday, eh?

Current TV does International Women’s Day: “Target Women” and “Real Women On Top” checking out the silly adverts. Bit of eddicashun….

Yesterday I went down to Brick Lane to pay homage to International Women’s Day. There was I expecting the crowds, the buzz, the excitement, the renewed bonding through education, diversity and ye olde equality. Just me then? I re-visited the sewing machine of my youth, broke some needles, and walked to Liverpool Street to get down to Stratford for the last FREE tea dance. Mary Patel does us proud.

Made my pancakes today, Fat Tuesday: Check out my story on www.whatsinwapping.co.uk and off to see how unfolds Hackney’s International Women’s Day celebration of which I am a part. Purple and green ribbons pinned!
