Busy times for Jane

Busy times for Jane

Jane was at the Forest Centre in Marston Moretaine again today and it was another busy one – a minibeast safari.

More lies at Hatfield House Living Crafts

Jane has been telling tales at the Living Crafts fayre at Hatfield House over the weekend. We’ve just got in with sore feet and needing cups of tea. Our kids have reached the age at which watching their mother performing has limited appeal, so I had to send them off on their own whilst I […]
