Memorial, Scales and Dinosaurs

20 Aug

1  Today we placed flowers outside Truro Cathedral for two little girls, aged 3 and 4, killed in Gaza a month ago. Oh for peace in that region.

2   I was pleased to see that we can still buy nails by weight and not everything has to be pre-packaged. Two nails, a dozen or a hundred – no problem – just weigh them!

3   In my second favourite shop (my first being any yarn/fabric emporium!) I saw these fabulous individual dinosaur cakes and knew immediately the little people for whom I want to bake them! Not surprisingly, they have sold out but my moulds are on order and as the children have now gone home that’s okay. I can bake them for their next visit.

    I try to be optimistic and hope human nature allows for peace. Wouldn’t it be lovely if it happened in our lifetime?

    And love that you can buy things like nails by weight!

      Yes, it would. Let’s each keep doing our own little bit as so many others do and we can hope that all that will add up to a peaceful world……..

    The issues in Gaza are beyond awful. It makes my heart hurt.
