Look what I was sent today. A photo of the the children receiving the pencil cases I made. The red and blue ones are mine and I think the pink one as well. Apparently the children were thrilled with them which choked me up a bit, especially when I think of everything my two have got. The children live in Sonrise Children's Home in Jinja, Uganda and another lady had also made some which meant there was enough for every child to have one. A request for more, if possible, was made, so I'll be getting the machine out again soon.
Mark was out today, so I spent a good hour on the computer and phone this morning arranging things for his birthday. It's not until June and I can't really go into any details yet as he sometimes reads this, but I think he'll be happy with what I've organised.
Lunch was a panini with salad left over from tea last night and some slices of smoked cheese. I love salad, but I'm not that keen on assembling it, so to just go to the fridge and pull out some leftovers made lunch easy today.
And if Amy sees this she'll kill me, but this is my diary and I have to put it in. It's the photo of her that school used for the awards evening last night. It was taken during a food tech lesson which is why she's holding her folder up instead of anything to do with English Lit.
I've just been outside to bring the washing in and there's a definite chill in the air. I was sunbathing (sort of) yesterday, I really hope I'm not snow boarding tomorrow!
