Baby Hat, Birthday Cake and Agapanthus

28 Jul

It was a wonderful morning with the choir, The Suitcase Singers and friends. We sang some beautiful ‘feel better’ songs, one of them a beauty by Helen Yeoman which she wrote in response to an atrocity by the Taliban in 2009. We need to feel the love and spread the love. The harmonies created are almost overwhelming.

It was Claire’s birthday so I had made her a delicious cake, Chocolate, Almond and Date Cake ( a new sugar free recipe apart from the chocolate drops that I added!)

One of Claire’s daughters was with us today having just returned from a month long school trip to Uganda where her school firm links with local schools. Before Saffron went, she and all the other pupils first fund raised both for the cost of the trip and to support the schools that they visit and each pupil collected a suitcase of donations, baby clothes, art materials, school supplies and games equipment. Among the things that we sent was one of my knitted baby hats and today Saffron gave me photos of the baby to whom it has been given. You can imagine my delight and the tears of joy!

The school kept a blog while they were away if you would like to read of their experiences click the red link.
