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!
