on a day like this! I tried, I really tried to get some work done, but all I had to show for it at the end of the day was 4 honesty cushion fronts.

“Not enough!” says Calvin, my inner imp, who sits on my shoulder and cracks the metaphorical whip.

Still, I did have the excuse of a small, bored child and my good friend Colette who had a hankering for brambles. So at about 2.30 we closed shop and sauntered up the hill.

Tom beckoning conckers
Tom and Colette can't resist a flutter in the old fire engine

Then I had an art student moment and started taking up close photographs of bits of junk!

Tom found some beautiful toadstools

So, as I feared…the school holiday has so far meant little work. Still, I have a child free scheme set up for tomorrow and have talked Colette in to ironing cushion seams in lieu for lunch and good natter.
