The glam slide….

We’re all on our hols! “Let’s all swim!” The kids cheer. I frantically dig out some dusty swim gear… We’re there, a bit flustered, but head for the pool. I suck in my stomach and try to act cool.

To Mum. From a Mum…

For the mountain of crusts that you cut from my bread. For that treat that YOU wanted, But gave me instead. For each time I woke you because “It was dark!?” For endlessly pushing the swings at the park. For the singular sprout that you put on my plate. For the tears you held back… Continue reading To Mum.

A Valentine’s rhyme for The Hubby…

Roses are red, violets are blue, Here is a rhyme of the things that you do… You’re called “Daddy Pig” which is quite fair enough, As you really are “rather an expert” at stuff! There’s very few things in the world you can’t do. (Well OK there might be the odd thing or two?) “But… Continue reading A Valentine’s rhyme for The Hubby…
