    Welcome to episode— what is it now?  I think it’s episode one hundred and twenty-burble-burble-burble (checked later – its 127!)
    I knew when I sat down that this would be a long one!
    Today I’m talking about all the ‘I haven’t done that for a while’ things I did in November, which caused me some anxieties and some soul-searching.  I tell you about the awesome new book Perspectives, from Julie Rutter and Emily K Williams. I’m discussing all the things I want to cast on this festive break (or the endless days  as we reach the end of the year, depending on how you look at it!)  and we, EVENTUALLY, have Wool Exploration with Zwartbles! Come on in, the water’s fine!
