Recently I've been lucky to have a young woman share her Fridays with me on a local high school Day Out Programme.
Laura-mae lives just down the road from us, and though we have met before, it has been a real pleasure spending time with her getting to know her.
She is 14 years old and loves jewellery and music, spending time in her weekends busking (playing her guitar and singing) and hanging out with her friends.
The Toy boy also has a young man from Laura-mae's year group spending time with him in the workshop - Jeremy is helping to assemble snails as I write.
Since our son grew up and left home, we find that we have had ever decreasing contact with young people, so this has been great fun for both of us!
We're off to the bead room this afternoon to assemble some lovely coral Swirl beads that came out of the kiln this morning.
TGIF everyone! - Generation gap here - Laura-mae just asked what TGIF mean, and for those who don't know...THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY!
