Seasonal Busyness

A corner of my sofa .. full of the season .. knitting, sewing, brochures ( just booked tickets for a certain little lady to go see Strictly Live ) ribbon, beads, magazines.
Trying to keep all of this out of O's little grasp is busyness in it's self !

A delightful Sunday afternoon gp forum style, much chatter, soup & bread, cake ( lots ! ) much laughter, children playing ( they were 19 of them ) cups of coffee and tea aplenty and swapping of jams and chutneys ..... perfect.
