‘Monday Mind Workout’ revisited a year on

Dear all,

Our ‘Monday Monday Mind Workouts’ have been going for one year now. Below is the first one I posted mid April 2020. I never thought for one minute I would still be posting them a year later. I welcome the day we can resume them face to face.

Please find below some questions to ponder whilst having a cuppa. I will post the answers tomorrow.

I will be hosting a weekly ONLINE ‘Monday Mind Workout’ from Monday 20th April@11am. If you wish to be added to the list then please email me: lisa@caringtogether.org.uk and I can go through this with you.
