It was a bit of a late night as we had friends over for dinner, then we were up early for a day in Camden today with Jacob and his friend John. It's Jacob's birthday on Wednesday - I can't believe my "baby" will be 15 - so we went to buy some new clothes and shoes as he has recently discovered the goth scene. We've had a lovely time - the boys had great fun trying on all the different clothes, Jacob got a new coat and shoes and John bought a jacket, the sun shone and we had fabulous West African food off a market stall. A good time had by all!

It's been a busy weekend so only a quick post this evening. Yesterday we had the first day of a two day doll making class in Baldock. The ladies were learning how to make heads and hands and then at the second day (in November) they will give them bodies. So at the moment they look a bit spooky... just disembodied heads! But they did really well and already "characters" are starting to emerge... one apparently is a drag queen (pink hair) and another is a witch (top right). I'm looking forward to seeing all their completed dolls and will post pictures of the results in November. I also started a new doll yesterday so now I've got two to finish... my granny and the new one. You will have to wait until they are finished to see them!
