As the kids have got older they sleep … Continue reading Smile and Grunt

A Message for my daughter and maybe yours too? What is Shrove Tuesday? Going through this week’s calendar and getting organised, I note it’s pancake day on Tuesday. I’ve taught the meaning of this to kids over the years in different schools, and remember that the word shrove is linked to being shriven from sin.
