Work & Play

Corner View was created by Jane at Spain Daily and is hosted by Francesca at FuoriBorgo. We are invited to post pictures telling the stories of our different lives and cultures. This week's theme is 'work & play'.

One of our favourite places to work and play is the charity shop where we've worked together as volunteers since Sunnyboy was 5 months old. Our main task at work is sorting and testing toys, which is a job particularly suited to Sunnyboy's skills. The first Corner View I took part in was 'Shopping' and then I posted pictures of a much younger Sunnyboy working and playing in our shop. This is Sunnyboy at work and play now.
