...this week of...

...happiness watching my eldest knead bread (he hates doing things which involved his hands other than drawing), celebrating Michaelmas with friends, a bike ride in the sunshine, autumn colours

...sadness at the news this week, it is becoming increasingly hard to stomach

...creating rows on a sleeve, a scarf, peg dolls, dragon bread, fruit leather, a fabric bucket, a handkerchief bag

...reading The Secret Life of Trees by Colin Tudge, to the children  The Hut-Man's Book by G.D. Fisher and these picture books* you can read a short review of them here, 241. Why Elephant has a Trunk, 242. Hooray for Bread by Allan Ahlberg, 243. I can do it! by Ruth Martin, 244. Too Princessy! by Jean Reidy, 245. This is actually my Party by Lauren Child, 246. We must completely go to London by Lauren Child, 247. Where's Tumpty by Polly Dunbar

...learning about Michaelmas, Hinduism, swallow migration, how the horse chestnut got its name

...thinking about food for an expedition we are doing at the end of the month

...wondering if I have too much in our diary for this week

...hoping that it doesn't rain all week as forecast.

...looking forward to my birthday on wednesday!
