  1. What a great time you all had at the canal festival I bet dad enjoyed down at the old bull and bush singing. What a good idea to have a floating book shop. You all looked as if you enjoyed the climbing wall. I liked the idea of the painted plates. Irys what a great pot you made and first time on a pottery wheel I used to have pottery classes when I was a girl but I never did as well as you. Well done xx the Saint looked exciting you looked as if you took to it easily well done Gracie and enhance xx
