If you want, you can join me on zoom at 9:30 and I'll continue from where we are up to and see how far we get in 30 minutes! Please log in a few minutes early so we can start promptly! The details will be on my blog. Maybe you can bring a glass of milk, biscuit and a nice blanket to snuggle in while you listen.
