I love the title of this book. Does the panda eat, then shoots and then leaves or does the panda eat the shoots and the leaves? Well my eight year old decided that someone eats, shoots and them leaves – the technically correct version luckily!Continue reading “Eats, Shoots and Leaves”
The Cat in the Hat is an amazing show. I went to see it with my girls and a friend and her kids at the Curve Theatre on 22nd December 2018.
In a vain attempt to honour Dr Seuss’s books, I’m going to try and rhyme this review.
The story begins like in the book:

To read other poems that I have written, you can follow this link – Poems. Continue reading “In aid of National Poetry Day”
I started reading Buddhism for Mothers while on holiday. On holiday its really easy to take on board all the exercises outlined and even to try out some of the meditating exercise. Since coming back, even though I’ve tried being mindful but its not that easy.
