Comic Relief

World Book Day characters combined with Comic Relief.
Working on my day off but dressing up was fun…medical wadding adapted to make ears and tail -while the fluffy body, which I found in the school dressing-up cupboard, was perfect… until it shed and got everywhere! Dodgy looking face paints to complete the look.
Silly Sheep!
Phoebe was in floods of tears in the cloakroom – her Mum had dressed her up as ‘Where’s Wally?’ and she didn’t want to come into the classroom and look daft. I pointed to myself and said “Who do you think looks dafter?” Still looking a bit doubtful, she finally cheered up when I suggested that we could do a double act; her ‘Where’s Wally?’ and my ‘Where’s Woolly?’
By break time she had perked up enough to be asking me to find her in the playground. A task not easy amongst lots of stripy pirates not to mention about ten other characters dressed identically to her!
Then tonight I watch and it all falls into perspective, the laughs mingle with tears. I offer a drop to try and help fill the ocean that they need – moved by the most piercing truth; ‘for someone to live, someone has to die.’

Being Margaret

A lighthearted look at life on any given day


Art is our home. This door is open, always, to all, and yet permits not the entry of draft or rain. The doused may find solace, and repose, in the warmth of this hearth. For the sparks of these words - the spectres conjured by its incandescence - are a family whose love is unconditional, and will ever blaze, kindling within us the faith to weather these tempests. The ashes may then be scattered upon the winds - to ignite the lost, and unify our souls as one, in unquenched illumination; to be the light which guides us home, through the darkest of eclipse.
