...this week of...

...happiness an afternoon with friends, a walk in a wood full of bluebells, big strong seedlings

...sadness at spending hours sewing a dress to find it doesn't fit, despite following a pattern

...creating part of a dress, a skirt, sewing up a knitted cardigan, some dolls clothes, a few rows of knitting

...learning about digestion, bones, days, months and years, adding up, letters, weeds

...thinking about camping trips now the weather has warmed up

...hoping to go for our first bike ride as a family

...looking forward to catching up with a friend who we haven't seen for weeks
