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. The kid’s gallop off in an unruly flock, As I pause… And peer down at my… Continue reading The glam slide….

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.

Hoodwinked!

T’was a morning like no other when at twenty five past six, A little girl peered sheepishly across her Weetabix. She paused for just a moment as she thought of what to say, Then whispered “I don’t want to go to nursery today”. Which came as a surprise as she had so far loved to… Continue reading Hoodwinked!

And then it started to snow…

Saturday 16th January – A bit after bedtime…. The last time it snowed here was 3 years ago, But you were so tiny you just didn’t know. You can’t have been more than a few short months old, Wrapped up in a snowsuit all safe from the cold. But we bought you a sledge as… Continue reading And then it started to snow…

The many meanings of “Mmmuuhh!”
