  1. Sorry to hear about you missing your Great Aunt. The rest of your week sounded busy in a good, chilled way. I was wondering if you ever made it to the museum with the dinosaurs?

  2. I'm sorry that you were not able to see your aunt. I do hope she is feeling well again.
    Your week sounds a bit like mine...learning, knitting, organizing...and for me, trying to create a rhythm for the fall.

  3. I so love travelling by train....I hope you will get to visit your great aunt soon :) xo


Hello......would love to hear from you :)
