I love those posters Leanne! That advice about tying your shoe laces is very valid - even as an adult I fall for that one occasionally! Being such an engaging story, you have earned a bonus 10 points on top of the 40 points you earned for updating us on on how you used your grant to visit the Safety School. Have a wonderful break and see you in 2021.
