It shouldn't really be that hard should it?
"Can you sprinkle some leaves over his head please? It'll be a fabulous Autumn photo!" said I to Mr. TBaM last weekend at Lacock Abbey.
It was around this time last year that I heard one of the families in our school was on the verge of being made homeless. Through a few unfortunate circumstances, they had gone from a middle-class family with two working parents and three happy children, to divorced and jobless with bailiffs at the door and children who didn't know where their next meal was coming from.
Having taught all three girls, it was more than I could bear, but the only thing I personally could do to help was donate to the local foodbank that I knew they would use. Since then The Boy and I have been food shopping in Aldi several times and we make an effort to take it to the church, where they explain the foodbank to him and he sees how the process works.
Earlier this week we went shopping again.
