...this week of…

happiness sunshine, blue sky, warmer temperatures, a bike ride, getting some much needed DIY done, a wonderful lunchtime concert

sadness that a friend's son has to travel to the States for nine weeks of treatment for a tumour

creating makedo models, jigsaws, a farm, a hairband, a play cape, a felted bowl, stop motion animation with lego
