The Summer is nearly at an end - on the one hand, I feel that it has lasted forever, on the other I am just not ready for everything that Autumn signifies. Am I ready for Albert's GCSE results next Thursday and his impending move to college, or for the return of Fred to Year 8? At the end of this week, I am taking redundancy from a job which I have been in for just over twenty years. I feel like I am just about to take a step into the abyss.
So, it's no wonder that I want to cling on to Summer a little longer - on to the last vestiges of what I know as safe and secure. My escapism is my craft and sewing, and I have been playing with fabric to make these cute strawberries.
Love Mrs Jones x
