Discussion : Not many had read 8 Steps to Happiness but that was overcome by Mary taking us through the main ideas behind the 8 Steps. We did a mindfulness exercise which involved copious amounts of sultanas and talked about what we’d like for a eulogy. The discussion ranged from happiness to forgiveness to teabags and back and was one of the funniest, happiest meetings we’ve had!

With only two votes the score was 4.25. Scored highly not because it’s a great literary masterpiece but for the things we got out of it.

And we have to mention, with thanks, Mary’s wonderful cooking – yummy curry.
