  1. Hi – I just wanted to say I absolutely love your poetry corner – now I’m a mum to two small people I can relate completely!

  2. I too just stumbled across your poetry corner… most of them brought a tear to my eye… they remind me so much of my life with my toddler boy and baby girl… beautiful chaos! What a beautiful way with words you have. Thank you for sharing.
