Recently, whenever I have been asked how I am, I haven’t really known how to answer the question. I neither this nor that; neither up or down; neither happy or sad. It’s a curious position to be in, this neutral state. Meanwhile there are a lot of changes going on in people’s lives I know that, this seems to be the season of ebb and flow in Mallorca. People are leaving the island, others are getting new jobs, businesses are closing, and we are all changing our summer wardrobes for our winter ones. (There should be less ebb and more flow on the tidy campaign in my house, but even that seems to have paused).
So in preparation for the winter season I have been busy busy cooking up some interesting things to do at Mood Beach in Costa D’en Blanes which will hopefully keep us entertained. There are several things in the pipeline so please let me know if any of this tickles your cockles. I am preparing a Winter Fair, a Homes and Interiors Fair, a Wedding and Events Fair and a Pet Show. There will be language lessons every weekday morning (Beginners Russian, German and Spanish and intermediate Spanish too) starting in November. There will be some brunch and lunchtime events as well, and every week there will be an event on Thursday evening: I am planning to have a writers’ and book group, a regular live music event for acoustic musicians, wine tastings and of course The Supper Club.
The Supper Club has been going for almost a year now. It is a very friendly and relaxed group for people who would like to make new friends and possibly business connections as well. We meet once a month on a Thursday normally. Our next meeting is tonight (Thursday 25th October) at 7pm. It costs 15€ per session to be participate and this includes two glasses of wine or beer or soft drinks, and a supper plate, plus the speaker or presenter. This month we have Kate Mentink who will be speaking about her role as Assistant Director at the Centre Baleares Europa and the European Citizens Department. A lot of Mallorcan residents know Kate from her time as a Councillor for Calvia Council, so it will be good to get back up to date with her.
Also to update you on two very exciting developments recently: firstly my DJ debut went so well that I have been asked to do the whole thing again on Saturday November 17th so if you like 70s and 80s music and like to dance, then that’s not a night to be missed. And the choir had its first meeting last Saturday: twenty five people turned up for the first rehearsal, and almost all of them were women. So if you’re a fella and you would like to join a friendly and fun group then make sure you head down to Mood Beach this Saturday morning to sign up for the Mallorca Community Choir! Rehearsals are from 11am until 12.30pm.
So even though it feels as if I have hit ‘PAUSE’ it’s only to draw breath for the next big push!
