Weekly Photo Challenge – Inside

This is one of my favourite “Inside” photos. It shows the contents of the case that I took to South Africa when we went volunteering in a village called Mapoch. The stacking cups and the wooden beads were toys which our own children had played with many years ago.

The subsequent photos show some of the toys we took being played with by the children in the pre-school. We went to help build an extra classroom and to work with the teacher and the children. It remains one of the best things I have ever done. The village and the people will be a part of me forever.

Sadly I lost all my photos from the trip but I did keep a diary so these photos are from the diary and are therefore not the best quality.

Rose Hips, Papaya and Superpowers

1   Coming away from my piano lesson today (where I played that phrase properly and have moved on some more!) , there was a whole hedge of beautiful rose-hips ranging from yellow to orange to pink to deepest red. I really ought to pick some and make rose-hip syrup.

3   We’re going to see Grand-baby B at the weekend and I am busy knitting to order a few pairs of the next size up Sally-boots. I’ll show you the finished articles tomorrow.

I knit! What's your Superpower?
