[LIFE] Talking #Pockets

Yesterday I was chatting to my friend Nell, author of the excellent Musings of a Clergy Child, and writer at LICC - an organisation I love for really getting me involved in 'life and faith' as things that work together - as an option for research... anyway, we were chatting about pockets, I love that Twitter highlighted this for me @alianoree ... and that you all took a POCKETS photo! Why don’t more places make with…
