Our Beautiful World Week 5 ~ Waiting

is a place where you can share photographs taken by you from your part of the world

We have a new word prompt every Sunday

and this week is chosen by Ros


Like many mothers, when my children were young, I was the "chaufeur" to drive them to school, and then after school classes, ballet, piano lesson etc. So what you do when you have wait at the cafe for them? I usually bring something to do while waiting, like a book, or a small crotchet project.

now this stack of granny square has a lot to do with waiting

I guess all I could do is just
