Gallery time again and this week the theme is 24 hours. Had we not been ill at the weekend this would have been a very different post. Instead it’s 24 hours at work with me.

Someone in the team made this cake, I try not to have favourites but when one bring cakes and one brings me lunch and one hides the biscuits, it’s difficult…….This is the gas ‘canister’.

Vulnerable people matter and generally they have little or no voice, I see them facing the biggest cuts; poverty effects children and life expectancy and opportunity. Tackling it matters.
I have a family and I try to leave work, at work. This is my evenings, the laptop.
At the moment he really loves jigsaws, does them for hours, over and over.
