Pawn moves first,
Bishop moves next.
Every step is a move.
Every move is a turn.
You take the King, you win!
You take like a maniac and you make your enemy weak.
Only the pawn gets upgraded if it reaches the enemy’s side.
You must swap your pawn for the Queen if it’s been taken.
If the Queen has not been taken you can choose another piece.
In that way, even a small pawn can win the game.

She sounds good
She looks good.
She feels good.
She is good.
She’s always good
She’s always going up and down,
doing things for me,
And cuddling and kissing me
whenever I want.
She always looked after me when I was a baby,
And was always nice to me when I was a child.￼￼
I always love her
I always love her.

In the ocean there are fish
In the sea we find shells
Waves bigger than houses
Blowing with the wind
An anemone goes, waving tentacles,
And people upon ships and boats.
Flying speedboats, racing with all,
And with turtles that go snap.

It’s week 3 of COVID lockdown and food recipes are growing (along with my waistline!)
This week – Chilli Paneer
In the end of this all, it will be transparent how we have really dealt with and looked after our most elderly, at need, and marginalised that will be displayed as either a mark of greatness, or a stain on our society and nation. Continue reading
Perhaps the one thing that is most enjoyable at Christmas and this time of the year is heading on out to watch a pantomime or play.
I’m not saying I’m a huge fan of pantomime but I certainly enjoy a good play in a theatre. And boy did this play not disappoint!
￼￼ I’ve not been to the Birmingham Town Hall in as many as 20 years and love what they’ve done with the renovations.
Having never read the book I wasn’t sure what to expect from the play “We’re going on a Bear Hunt”, and this was a complete surprise to me.
To see how the translation of literary works into such music and entertainment could be performed with so much enthusiasm and vigour and fun was truly a delight and the laughs that ensued were testament to the production and cast
A great cast using brilliantly simple props in a beautifully lit hall captivating all the youngsters and parents/grandparents alike.
Sid really enjoyed himself here (as did Sang and I)￼￼￼￼￼ so be prepared for tons of audience participation, great humour, lovely visual fun and the occasional Splish splash!￼
Things I want my son to know.
Lesson #15 – Follow your heart, create your path.
Out mowing the lawn on a gorgeous sunny Sunday, I look back and find that you’re mowing the lawn right behind me!
Like. A. Boss.
I love my son. More than my own life. And I think I can speak for nearly every parent out there, that there is no love quite like this.
When my son was born, I immediately fell in love with him. I mean, I dived straight into it.. I never thought I would, but I did, and before I knew it, I was telling my son “I love you” like a million times a day. Continue reading
Somehow it doesn’t have the same ring as Nirvanas ‘Heart Shaped Box’ but it made me happier that he song did to see that my sone was beginning to enjoy the pleasures of cooking.
When you get your son his first Valentine’s day card from mummy and daddy … and it’s spot on for his room.
