Summer siesta

School’s out and the long, long summer holidays have started.


The kids and I are kicking off the first week of summer

By going to a surf camp in Peniche, Portugal,

And learning something new: surfing.


I’ve got Our World ready to go up next week

(Hope there are no problems!)

I won’t be around for about ten days or so

So won’t be commenting on your blogs.

Catch you later!

Golden tones

Last week saw the end of term, the end of the school year. Our school always celebrates this milestone in our local church, which is 800 years old.

Was it the joy of the occasion – or just the light that made the violins glow?

Daughter with her violin

The soaring voices of angels singing made

Warm wood – the colour of honey – luminous against the backdrop of wet leaves on old glass.

And now, at last, the restraints of church are cast off

As children, tasting freedom and scraped knees and sun and ice cream,

Let their voices tumble out in golden laughter.
