9 July: Little Hampton Beach

9 July ( A Day at Little Hampton Beach)


says why are they red,
those aren’t grapes – grapes are green.

and he doesn’t want a red apple
because Snow White keeps eating them,
and then she is dead again.

his sister eats all of his grapes.


is dressed for the beach. Misha and the bear
are going too. and paddington.

she doesn’t believe that Paddington can’t swim.

her Frozen sunglasses have gone missing
and there’s a meltdown.

and there’s a spider
in her cereal bowl.

her brother wants the spider.


are both howling because they can’t
have cookies for breakfast.

amazing the decibels coming out
of two very small people.

  1. ideal beach weather yesterday. But what are you doing giving them fruit? Had all the chocolate melted?


  2. You bearing up Misky? Love is all there is.


  3. You’re not going to want to return these two when the time comes. 🙂


  4. I’m loving your style of writing about your grandchildren. It reminds me of the children’s author Marie-Louise Gay and her Stella and Sam stories.
