If you are in or around London at 6:30 pm on Thursday 24 February, stylist Hannah J is running a Make Do and Mend workshop on Brick Lane. The tickets are £25 each, which I thought sounded a bit dear as you can get a whole new outfit from TK Maxx for that price, but as it turns out you get quite a lot of bang for your buck (in addition to plenty of tea and cake). You get lots of tips and advice; also, you take three “tired” garments with you and are helped to transform them during the course of the workshop. Further information is available here.
Venue: 26 Osborn Street, London, E1 6TD

North of the Watford Gap?
Visit York got in touch to ask if I’d spread the news about their latest mini-break offer. It is called See You In York and gives you an extra night at participating hotels and B&Bs for free. So if you book two nights you get three nights, if you book three nights you get four and so on. You also get a free bottle of Yorkshire wine. See their website for details. I only live down the road so shan’t be taking up this offer, but can vouch that York (above) is a Very Nice City. I can’t vouch for “Yorkshire wine” though…
So what are you still doing sitting at this computer then? Go on – shoo!
