The was really interesting and enjoyable, thank you for sharing. 'The club' sounds like great fun and it's interesting how people used to make a real effort with their council homes and even tiny balconies, growing flowers. I don't know what's...

Posted on Mon, 05 Oct 2020

Hi Rhiannon, I think if you're somebody who gets overstimulated by detail then sitting such an exam at age eleven is so overwhelming. I remember the ticking clock at the front of hall getting right into my head and also the sight of the other...

So beautiful to watch the way

Posted on Mon, 05 Oct 2020

So beautiful to watch the way they move, the little feathered visitors add so much to our environment. I love the way you've described their movements and how their colours connect to the environment.  I think the sudden change in weather has...

Posted on Mon, 05 Oct 2020
