Oh what a beautiful Sunday morning: bright, breezeless, and frosty.
Never was the sky so blue, streaked east to west with jet trails, from seemingly-small silent planes either flying to or away from the USA . . .
And we have a Bread Making course about to begin; and the CALM (Children’s Cancer And Leukaemia Movement) families due mid morning . . . but the Centre’s cold and the water pipes are frozen.
We have to get busy, and do.
By midday, the kitchen is womb-warm and dough is mixed, kneaded, and rising, and the circle of aproned apprentice-bakers are flour-flecked and happy; and the CALM children are happy too, helping carry kettles of water to the frozen Centre.
Life is for helping at Lower Shaw Farm.
