I scanned the playground for my friend Jane. A deal had been arranged. She passed me the bag of mushrooms and I handed over the cash in exchange. All done in view of two of the teachers who looked both perplexed and amused at the sight of this transaction. They had to agree that Jane's cashmere and cotton crochet creations are very sweet. All that remains is for me to sew on the pearls and keyring findings and then they will be ready for the shop. I like this task, I do it in the car while Alexei is at his gymnastics club.
