On the free pretzel samples at Merry Hill…
“It’s my favourite sample of the day!”

The count…


“Worms think birds are murderers.”


“When it’s autumn, it’s gonna be very leafy. And I’m gonna stomp! Stomp!”


“At school, I have loads of secret hideouts. I’ve got 4. No, wait… 7.”


“It took me 109 seconds to get dressed!”

To Daddy at the park…
“Let’s do some more [playing], coz it’s exercise and you need to get fit.”

“I am still awake, you know.”
– seconds before she fell asleep.


“Doughnuts are dafter than daughters.”


“Louder! Louder! Louder! Louder!”
– when Kasabian’s ‘Bumblebee’ was on the radio… good taste girl! 🙂


“Forward slash… even number…”

“In my dream I had a tail, and I could change it to whatever colour I want, and I changed mine to pink.”

She has recently been asking some interesting questions, for which it has been, let us say, ‘challenging’ to offer appropriate answers! Earlier this year there was…

“What was before the Big Bang?”

… and …

“Why is everything called what it is called?”

And on the 24th of May…

“In Heaven, can you actually, erm, go to the toilet?”

How do you answer that one?

The latest offerings are…

“Who decided that we would live on this planet?”

And finally for today…

“Why do we speak English?”

Before I log off, I am still pondering over a recent bath time discussion about cells and genes, which culminated in her asking how DNA knows what to tell the cells about what they should grow into and how it actually talks to the cells. I’m thinking it relates to evolution, natural selection and what have you, but how do you explain this stuff to a (very bright and curious) 5-year old? Answers on postcard! (or a comment will do)

The ‘Knack’ of ‘lol’…


Playing ‘Knack’ on Granny’s PS4, after clearing an area of baddies…
“I always check if there’s anything else.”

“You know, I can run faster than the wind.”


She has started writing ‘lol’!

The mark of fashion…


“I don’t go to a fashion club, you know.”


On a little bookmark made with a bit of notepaper, she wrote: “Where I am”
