As the Glory, back from University pads into the kitchen to make a cup of tea I complain.
“Now I’ve got to write another blog and schedule it for tomorrow ‘cos I’ll be too busy”
“Write one about me!” she exclaims.
During Year 9 all students have to do work experience. Anxiety was beginning to bite The Glory of the Clan, and she was quite unable to decide what to do. As she was considering Medicine or something related at the time, I suggested Horton, as long as she was not in the same class as Pearl.
A week with the Early Years followed.
“What did you do today?” I asked.
“Oh something really excellent, with the sensory group. They lay down and we played chimes music, and touched them with feathers and stroked them, and did some massage too-they loved it, it was called TacPac”
“What does that stand for” asked the ever curious parent.
“I don’t know”
I’ll just explain, that we have always played word games, in our family, making up phrases from number plates or abbreviations.
“Probably Tap a Child Poke a Child” says she.
And in our house that’s what it has been ever since.
I leave you with some incredible art work, from my talented daughter-sorry Oh Glorious One, but it is Pearl’s blog really.
