During our February 6th general meeting we were feeling the LOVE. In preparation for Valentine's Day our effervescent speaker was none other than the gorgeous and bubbly Martine McCutcheon, star of LOVE, ACTUALLY. She serenaded us with a few bars of one of her hit songs from her long and multifaceted career, and even showed us the Happy Dance she and her mother did when she heard she'd got the part opposite Hugh Grant!! What an afternoon, I'm doing the Happy Dance now just remembering this exciting meeting.
The AWBS International Women's Club is a friendly club offering amazing opportunities to travel, do charity work, attend lectures and join over 25 activities -- all organized by our wonderful AWBS members. We are an International group of approximately two hundred members, who have moved to the UK, some for their first overseas assignment, others for their umpteenth; some have settled in, others are on short assignments.
Happy New Year to all our wonderful AWBS Members, friends and extended family.
Tuesday December 6th was what I would call historic! Meeting in
historic Windsor Guildhall, surrounded by paintings of Queen Elizabeth with most of her relatives, where her son Prince Charles and Camilla tied the knot here. But the icing on our GM Christmas pudding was our Special Speaker - fascinating, award winning historian, biographer and novelist Simon Sebag Montefiore. Yes, the internet can't hold a well dipped candle to love letters from Imperial Russia. Not after Simon Sebag Montefiore has uncovered long held secrets from the Russian archives.
