Posted on Thu, 26 Sep 2019

Another splendid episode.  I just love the idea of a not too happy to see you squid.  I hope you're thinking of sending this off somewhere at some point?  It deserves a wider audience.  If I ever get any grandchildren, I want to read this to them...

Posted on Fri, 27 Sep 2019

This is beautiful, Rich. You have a  great and generous ability not only to evoke your own memories, but to make the reader feel that they're part of a conversation, and so recall how they also felt at nine years old.  As insert says, more please...

Posted on Fri, 20 Sep 2019

It's awful, isn't it, once you get caught up in one of those complicated things.  I do hope it's sorted out for you soon, and that your brother settled well in his new home.

This made me smile Jean - those innocent times when life seemed a lot simpler!  I had my first marriage proposal at 5 - he didn't ask me, he told his mum that we were getting married so she would have to get the spare room ready for me, and tell...

Marvellous stuff.  A spell to cast upon any blasted heath.  I wonder if you'd consider reading this aloud and adding to the ABC Soundcloud collection?  It would be fantastic.

Lovely response to the IP. 

Posted on Sat, 14 Sep 2019

Lovely response to the IP.  Have you ever seen the film 'The Last Unicorn'?  My children adored it when they were small - in fact both have their own copies now because they wore out our old videotape!  This reminded me of that - the fleeting...
