The Spirit of Play


 The Spirit of Play is everywhere:

In the way you peel an orange, set the table for a fun tea party; as you imagine the gleeful look in a life long¬†friend’s eye when he or she opens the parcel you are wrapping just now….

The way your kids hide behind the curtains hoping you miss them long enough to make a fuss, anticipating your cousins visit over the summer…

colouring a handmade card, choosing wall paper, pot plants or an outfit for a friend’s party….Hopscotch on the pavement, noughts and crosses on the window pane, I spy with my little eye in the back of the old family car… Ring a ring o’ roses in the garden, a den under the dining table…Oh joy!
