For one week I looked after and played with my friend Ali, her brother Lucian, 10 chickens and 2 dogs. We played a lot of knucklebones, chopped mountains of wood, scratched around looking for eggs, and walked around the block numerous times.
Ali showed off her baking skills too so we had a constant supply of cupcakes, as well as the most beautiful little fimo foods fingers can make.
Hurrah for the much anticipated crafty meeting with wool, needles, hooks, thread and paper and glue!
And while we were busy at the table there were delicious stirrings in the kitchen...
Gareth's vegan afghan delights disappeared before the icing even set, while Annie and Charlotte were brewing something magical that would feed us for days..
Come back one day soon and see the most beautiful edible farewell present imaginable!
