The final preparations for our schools' Grandfriends' Day was mammoth but we made it - that is why it has been quiet around here. I went straight from setting up art shows and directing traffic, making coffees and teas and drawing raffles to my sick bed with a cold. Funny how that always happens.

The sandpit looks a little sad and lonely - but there may still be one more summer left in it.
