Not only is the sun shining today, Kerry’s face is shining too!

After a ten month absence from the MenzShed Hastings Trust due to COVID lockdown, Kerry was delighted to be able to pick up his tools again and get straight to work restoring an oak table for the Cranford Hospice Stores – Hastings, Napier & Waipukurau.

Kerry caught up with lots of familiar faces, met a few new faces and enjoyed some banter and laughter all round.

Everyday people, everyday places, everyday thngs, everyday times.

Susan – living her best life

Susan loves cats.

Susan especially loves Nina, her constant feline companion rescued by Susan from the SPCA about 4 years ago. Susan likes to regale us with hysterical stories of Nina’s antics.

While Nina snoozes on Susan’s bed during the day, you’ll often find Susan working away at her jigsaw table while enjoying a cuppa. Of course, animal jigsaws and in particular cat jigsaws are very popluar with Susan.

Everyday people, everyday places, everyday things, everyday times.
