The smell of hot, sticky, tarmac roads

Plastic umbrellas against the rain

Puddles muddy and irresistible

Toast by the coal lit fire

Wiggling toes in front of the flames

Tents made from cushions and throws

Secret places to play

Seeking fossils in the soil

Dirty knees and grazes

Rolling down the mowed hills

Do you like butter?

Hold a buttercup to your chin

Daisy chains and cut grass sculptures

Carpet burns and plastic rings

Rubbing balloons on your head

Static hair was funny

Drawing blobs with stick legs

Artist in the making

Scratching bow on violin strings

Frustration on the brow

Fluffy pyjamas and teddy bears

Scared of the dark

Exhausted from exploring

Time to go to sleep
