On the Hook, 25/4/20

This week I have been continuing to enjoy the lovely Pandemonium CAL 😀 This is how it looked in last week’s post: By the next day (Sunday) I had finished part 3: After working from home all day, I finished part 4 on Monday evening.

For most of the squirrels down by the seafront in Bournemouth Gardens, this was not problemContinue reading “Squirrel Buffet”
