October Days:)

After the success of the food days in September I thought I would continue with October, (no time to be creative at the moment), but not with the food days, although there are many, but with a cross section of the daily/weekly/ monthly observances.

The celebration blog for the Queen has been up a few days, and as she herself pronounced, "Work goes on as usual", I am getting on with my work and producing a new blog!
