Organic harvest October 17, 2006

Filed under: Announcements — wigz @ 8:07 am

Dear fellow members

We have a small farm in Zuid-Beveland.  At the moment we are
harvesting many interesting fruits and such.  just wanted to let
people know what we have for sale at the moment:

16 variety of pumpkins, from very small to very big      €0,50 p. kilo
6 variety of  fresh walnuts, a mix      € 3,- p.kilo
12 variety of  “old rases” apples        €0,50 p. kilo
 Quince         €2,-p.kilo (limited)    quince jelly is also for sale €5,- p.
jam pot
everything is organically grown

This year because we are in the middle of renovating we didn’t make
any announcements so it most of our harvest  goes to local grocers,
but if WIGGZ’s are interested I wouldn’t mind them phoning or
dropping by.

Baarsdorp is actually not in ‘s-Heer Abtskerke.  It is closer to
Heinkenszand.  One passes the Hotel Goes, goes over the via duct,
follows the road to the right, and by the cluster of houses, don’t
shut your eyes or you’ve passed it, on the left hand side, a dead end
street, is the Oude Hoeveweg.  It’s the first farmhouse in the street
and one can come up the side entrance seeing the main gate is being
used.  It’s always good to let me know in advance when you’re coming
and what you are interested in so that I can have it ready.

 From Heinkenszand, the St. Pieters dijk keeping to the left, past
the kweker Westhof straight on is Baarsdorp.

Thank you,



Book Swap October 13, 2006

Filed under: Book Club — wigz @ 7:49 am

Thanks to Janet for hosting our second book swap at the Mission to seafarers.  I’m sure the poor sailors were wondering what was going on, with all the laughter that was emanating from their library.  We also managed to find time for “business”.  So watch this space for concrete details of all that we are now planning for the next few “festive” months.

The next book swap will be held on Wednesday 8th November from 10.00-12.00. Holly Vette has kindly volunteered to host it at her home Jolstraat 29 in Yerseke. You can contact Holly on 0113 573965.


What did you do last Saturday night, Mum? October 2, 2006

Filed under: Events — wigz @ 6:38 pm

Well, the answer is obvious: I went to Middelburg and met even more new “wigz”and some that I hadn’t seen for a long time. The diversity of women who come along to events never ceases to amaze me, and the number of connections that we have is mind boggling, along the lines of “Oh yes, I know her too!” The coincidences are sometimes a bit spooky. The thing  that really gets me, is that I have realised that I’m not alone and that there are many women who’ve walked this path before me and that I can learn so much from them! As well as having had a jolly good drink and a good old laugh.  Thanks, wigzers, for a good night out!
