In order to continue what we found to work so well during our self care project in Cullompton, we needed a new place to be. So we now have a new hub in the centre of Exeter, on Cathedral Close, where we can meet up, connect people, teach, get busy, hold classes, be creative and have a great time. This time it is not centred around a cafe but it will have the same excellent coffee. We are a social enterprise community interest company.
New Loo, New Noticeboard, Working Sink = Heaven!!!
It was a dodgy start to the day but it's turn out all right in the end. Lovely Dean was back in again this morning to do the last bit of work on the dispensary. I started off my day in B&Q which was never going to get me off to a good start. I couldn't find the pipe supports! I got all in a bit of a muddle but Dean was great and it all got sorted thanks to his calm nature. I can't remember what else was going on but it all seemed a bit much. But it doesn't take a lot to turn the day around. Dad rang up to say he was on his way with the new noticeboards. Our hub is just fabulous but being listed we can't attach anything to the walls so dad came up with a cunning plan for the boards including special hooky things. Genius. He took away the last bit of cake from Saturday's sale (as payment?!).

Let's fill it up!
Then Danny came over with Ruth. Now he's a tonic in himself. Danny always came to knit and natter with Ruth and he has the loveliest nature. He tested out our new building blocks and it was great to catch up with Ruth and her new bump. I had a meeting at 2pm and so I had to say good-bye to them rather abruptly. I am sorry Ruth, it was so lovely to see you. The days just aren't long enough.

Shane the other plumber finished the en-suite. I just need to do a bit of interior decorating and flooring but we are so nearly there.
It's a brand new loo - never been used!
I am now sitting at the new desk in the reception of the adjacent Sustainable Health Centre whilst the Hub is being used for it's first ever class. White Lotus Meditation have their first meeting. The dongle is working in here and I am ploughing through the emails. Clearing some of the To Do List will help me get a good start to the day tomorrow, except that I am starting in B&Q again! But it is only to find cupboard doors and I know what they look like!
