...happiness at watching my children play with friends they haven't seen for a while, getting our rhythm right this week by being mindful of downtime, a long train journey to my parents, a day out with my extended family

...sadness at a friend who is struggling with one her friends right now, their friendship runs long and deep but is not working and leaving my friend in knots

Fisher and these picture books* you can read a short review of them here, 225. Another Fine Mess by Tony Bonning, 226.  I absolutely love animals by Lauren Child, 227. Hickory Dickory Dog by Alison Murray

...creating a slipper, a sleeve, a hat

...learning about dinosaurs, planes, fruit, seeds, blackberries, rhythm
