YOGA WITH NICOLE

“I’ve been thoroughly enjoying Nicole’s yoga classes. Yoga doesn’t just benefit my body, it also really helps calm my mind too. After a few weeks without doing a class, I immediately felt the difference after her first video. (Nicole is also my flatmate, so at least now I don’t need to bother her and can enjoy her yoga sessions in my own time!!) Thanks Nicole!🧘🏻‍♀️”….Nikki

Kathleen

WELL-BEING CALLS

“I have appreciated the calls so much. The callers are so nice and I am totally at ease with them. I would imagine someone on their own would find them comforting. Take care all of you, you do a marvellous job xx”…Kathleen

Burns Night at FYF

BURNS NIGHT

“I enjoyed the Burns Supper last night – we were well entertained and I knew the words of most of the songs. I grew up with family parties at Hogmanay and we did a lot of singing and then sang Auld Lang Syne after the bells so last night brought back many happy memories to me. I have attended a few Burns Suppers in our local village and I was impressed by the FYF one. Thanks to everyone involved last night and to all the hard work you do for us Troopers it is much appreciated xx”…..Catherine

Tony

GAMES AND A GAB

“just want to say thanks for last weeks Ampu-Teas Bingo, glad we could see words on screen, dodgy bingo caller(cor)!! 😂 It was great to chat and laugh with others. Hope we get more of the same, as the saying goes ‘time fly’s when your having fun’ Hope more people join in.”….. Tony

CREATIVITY WITH CHRISTINE

“I’ve never tried water colouring as it’s messy, I don’t do messy 🤣 but watching Christine has certainly made me think again and have a go. Really enjoyed the demo this week, as a card maker it opened my mind to try something new, looking forward to more xxx”….. Linda

Catherine

FYF QUIZ

“I enjoy seeing all the folks and the chat and can follow the instructions for Zoom OK but I find the questions rather difficult as you know by my score – probably my age is against me – I am 77, however I intend tuning in every Tuesday as I am always learning new facts.” ….Catherine

LEARN TO SIGN WITH THOMAS

“After booking onto the sign course, Keeley kept reminding me about it and she loved the signing course, takes a lot for her to sit in the same place for a whole hour. Afterwards she kept saying how much fun it was and has been practicing the alphabet. Takes some to get her inspired like this, was lovely to see.”…Jan & Keeley

COOKING WITH THE CUNNINGHAMS

“I’m not the most confident in the kitchen but I do like to try new things and watching Michael with his adorable kids helping made this lots of fun as well. I can’t wait for the next session.”….Anon

Dave

LOCAL AREA AMPU-TEAS

“Hi all, for those that don’t know me I’m Dave.

I think the FYF Ampu-Teas is a very important part of our ever growing family as it’s a place to meet (virtually at the moment) other people in similar situations in life, it’s a great place to find advice & information and most importantly have a laugh.”….Dave

Hope

HOP ALONG WITH HOPE

“I’ve really been enjoying leading the ‘Hop Along with Hope’ sessions, I am a strong believer in the power of sport and physical activity for all the amazing benefits it provides. Lockdown is difficult for everyone so I hope that these sessions provide some inclusive fun for the junior troopers and families. No equipment is necessary but smiles are essential ☺️🦿🦾”….Hope

CREATIVE WRITING AND POETRY WORKSHOP

“I’m really excited that Imogen will be offering further creative writing workshops from February 10th! I so enjoyed the session she ran and surprised myself by producing writing, scaffolded gently and expertly by Imogen, which opened my heart to the experience of lockdown and its similarities (for me anyway) of the experience of being an amputee. So looking forward to seeing what further workshops inspire in me!”….Kate

LEARN TO SIGN WITH THOMAS

“I’ve always wanted to learn how to sign so it was great to go along to the session. Thomas adds good humour and fun to it too so I’m looking forward to going back next week and plan to take my hubby with me to practice on! I’ve even learnt a couple of swear words, although that’s not why I’m going back of course 😅😂” …..Les

FITNESS WITH LYNN

“I would like to say a few words regarding the chair fitness classes both Lynn & Stuart are great tutors they explain every exercise clearly and do it along with us, no matter what limbs we are missing they both have ideas to suit all of us. I am not madly keen on any gym but this class is good for using limbs we are not normally using sitting in chairs at home. Thanks to FYF and both Lynn & Stuart for getting us a bit more active xxx”…Linda

BOOK CLUB

“Our FYF Book club is a fantastic idea and if our first book “In a house of lies written by Ian Rankin” is anything to go by, I’m in it for the long run.

The story sucked me in from the first sentence and didn’t disappoint right to the end. A cleverly written plot, a motley crew of unscrupulous characters and some brilliant Scottish humour that made me laugh out loud.
I can’t wait to get together with our fellow readers in the group and hear if it was just as exciting for them as we discuss different aspects of the book.

Bring on the next great read…”..Margaret

FYF QUIZ

“Because of Covid-19 my ability to be a social bunny has been knocked totally on the head, so hosting the Quiz on a Tuesday night, or even taking part in it has been a total lifeline to me, and being a bit of a quiz nut its even better if I win 😜 ! The biggest & best bit for me has been the interaction with all the other troopers, and the laugh we have! Tuesdays are new weekends!”…..Mark

ZOOM

“Zoom meetings have helped me get to know other amputees, at first I was a bit shy but still joined in and kept the camera off once I got to know people more I switched my camera on and even if I felt under the weather I know I could still join in the fun without people seeing me. So when you join the clubs the option is there to switch the camera on or off and still have fun.”…..Maryann

ALL THINGS NUTRITION WITH LYNN

“The nutrition talk certainly opened my eyes to understanding the importance of calories as opposed to fad diets or even the likes of Slimming World or Weight Watchers. Knowing how to calculate how many calories I should be eating and how much of each food group I should be eating will definitely help me on my weight loss journey.”….Nichola

BLOG WRITING WITH KERR

“I’ve started doing the three week blog course with Kerr and I’m loving it so far. Didn’t know anything about it before signing up but it’s really interesting stuff, with loads of information from Kerr on how to do it. He’s got my wee brain ticking with ideas and you can see the result as myself, and the other members blogs will be posted on line with FYF.

Hope you’ll all enjoy my piece on zombie, lap dancing skydivers 😜😂”…..Stephen

GAMES AND A GAB

“Hey guys and girls. If you haven’t already tried it you should give Games and a Gab a go on a Wednesday morning, it’s a great way to pass an hour. FYF have come up with some good stuff so far. Last time it was catchphrase including Mr Chips. Join in and have a laugh…..who knows you might even enjoy it 😅🙃”…..Liz & Tony
