In praise of older women

This past week subscribers to Up Your Street have been collecting grandchildren, praying in the Mosque, attending Mass, rushing to Lidl’s, seeing to spouse appointments and then attending art exhibition launches, inter-cultural teas, doing art and discussing and debating gender issues, visiting a museum and highlighting Black History Month in their conversations.

Credit where it’s due mate.

Saturday it’s back to a creative writing workshop on the other side of London, watching a play and attending a fashion show; British Museum story-telling training on Monday and a visit to the old docks on Thursday.
