Yes, fantastic - bright and cheerful. So talented.

(Didn't mean to copy your words, Sue, - that's how it struck me, too!)

When in school today, I went into reception and there are two enormous art pieces in the reception hall.

One is 3-D, with some fabulous lily-type flowers, and the other was a subdued but very colourful piece - they just struck me as soon as I went into the area. Fantastic.

In two weeks time, I'll be helping to cater and serve at a Lunch with Music for our town's elderly folk, with musicians from this school providing the entertainment.

What talent there is amongst our young people.

That all sounds rather lovely Val.  Enjoy yourself there.

I'll try that again!

I find those animals rather un-nerving Val.

I'll try that again!

But the skill is there - it isn't for me, but I am just amazed at other people's creativity.
