follow the yellow brick road
Friday 27th November, caught the train to London Paddington, to attend my Ataxia UK Trustee Induction,(Plus my first trustee board meting, with AUK) Great to meet up with old friends and meet some new people. While I was at the meeting, Dawn went shopping along Kensington and to HARRODS (she bought some RED “Wizard of Oz” shoes).
In the evening we attended the “Razzle Dazzle” ball, for AUK, at Royal Chelsea Hospital Gardens. A FANTASTIC event, with plenty great memories.
