I volunteer at Dress for Success www.dressforsuccess.org/london and this is our 10 year anniversary since opening in London. To commemorate the occasion the Darlings hosted a reception for us at 11 Downing Street. It was lots of fun catching up with volunteers from other days. I go in once a week to help dress women for job interviews and so never see the volunteers from the other days. We all love what we do so there is a real camaraderie when we get together. It was fun to go behind the big gates and go past number 10 (we had a reception there in 2008) and into 11. I must admit I was very bad at meeting the VIPs who were there but did manage to meet Joi Gordon who started the charity in New York. I think we overstayed our welcome a bit since it was meant to be over at 8 but the last of us shuffled out closer to 9.
On an entirely different note, I worked out a schedule for my cooking classes yesterday. It will be a block of 5 weeks beginning 27 April. I will teach Tuesday and Thursday nights and it will be the same class so you have a choice of nights. I also figured in the beginning I will keep it simple. Also, one Saturday during the course, I would arrange an outing to Japan Centre so you will be able to navigate on your own for Japanese ingredients. Now I just need to figure out a way to post it somewhere so I can start spreading the word. Oh, and of course I need to price it. That may be the activity this weekend.
