Thinking Pink!

We had a Pink day at school yesterday to raise money for Breast Cancer Research - almost £1000 from pupils and teachers, so a great effort. My Form did themselves, and me, proud with their pinkness!

Well done 7F for truly entering into the spirit of the day!

Conserving the summer

I was busy jamming and chutney-ing this weekend, some for us, some for Christmas gifts and some for our school Christmas Fayre.

Serendipitous hearts

Hearts this time, just manifesting themselves quietly. During our Australian holiday. Spending beautiful quality time with family.

Christmas Boxes

Time for this year's Samaritan's Purse boxes, one for a girl and one for a boy. I always have such fun finding things to go in. I took them down to Mummie last weekend and she will take them to the local depot.

For a little boy

For a little girl
I hope the recipients will enjoy the contents when they arrive in time for Christmas!
