‘We had a great day out last Saturday. K brought her 3 grandchildren, all dressed up in traditional African dress and we went out photographing the street performers in Covent Garden on a photography workshop. It was fantastic watching them all shriek with laughter at the ‘statues’, particularly B who really seems to be having a tough time of it at the moment.’
