Today I have added two odes and a longer piece which tells of the excitement leading to the birth of our second grandchild.
Ethan is now a toddler, racing around, full of fun and mischief.
He is nearly always laughing.
And now he is on the edge of speaking. He has a LOUD voice!

Today you have a bonus bunch of four pieces added.
“Largo, Glasgow Fair,1954” is a Boyhood Tale, which is true.
This is a quick read that may bring back memories of Scottish beach holidays when the Sun always split the skies and the sea was warm!
“Dermot the Pig” is a tiny little ode, a poem for Matthew and Ethan. Guess what its about?
“Francesca Allegra” is an ode for our Italian Tutor. Francesca is very special. What a girl!
“Topolina and Nerone” is a cat meets mouse tale. They meet in their dreams, so nobody dies!
This is a 10 minute “read to at bedtime” story.

“Hoppity Horace and Henry George at the Birthday Party” is a short story for parents and grandparents to read aloud.
“Pinocchio and Cuccinella” is also a read aloud story, with an Christmas theme.

Although I sing and have an eclectic taste in music, sadly I do not play and instrument.
My friend Donald sings, plays and composes.
How clever is that!
“From a Wheelbarrow” is an open prose poem written as a challenge set by Donald.
I await the outcome.
(A revised version of this website may include MP3 files, so perhaps we may hear Donald sing these songs for us?)

Perhaps these should not have been uploaded together?
“Spot Check” is a children’s story about Dupree the Dalmation and Bonnie the Whippet.
“Plaice man” is a story about deep-seated sibling rivalry set against in a Fish & Chip Shop.
“Plaice man” is an adult story, but not too dark, more like Eastenders!
