...this week of...
...happiness swimming in our village pool, time with my parents, listening to my children playing together, a quiet weekend at home with my family,
...sadness at the news that a friend is emigrating this month, most likely, I always knew she would one day but the circumstances are not what I expected at all
...creating a cardigan, row of knitting on my tee shirt, two play capes, a sheath for a dagger, a rubber band guitar
...reading The Last Gift by Abulrazak Gurnah, to the children The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, and these picture books* which you can read a short review of here, 162. Aristotle by Dick King-Smith, 163. Ivor the Engine: The Dragon by Oliver Postgate, 164. Don't Dip Your Chips in Your Drink, Kate! by Caryl Hart, 165. I Took the Moon for a Walk by Carolyn Curtis
...learning about swords, Romans, wild flowers, sewing, Tanks, erosion, fossils
...thinking about menus and food for this weekend, a camp, with twenty four mouths to feed
...wondering what was going through a drivers mind when he nearly hit my family and another family in the van he was driving
...hoping that I can get a whole pile of packages and letters in the post this week
...looking forward to camping this weekend!
