The Teacher’s Chair – A poem for children

Mum came to school the other day.
Teacher said that I’d been bad.
I listened to her rant for ages
and mother looked so sad.

But when the teacher tried to stand
I couldn’t help but giggle;
I’d stuck super-glue to her chair
which made her knickers wriggle.

She sat there while my mother smiled
and said sorry for her plight,
but when unstuck and free to walk,
I decided to take flight.

This was a writing exercise in our Winsford Writing Group. The leader of the session, Elizabeth Horrocks, said to write something using naughty, but not obscene words as children liked that. The above is my effort. We only had 10-15 minutes to write. Why not have a go and put it in a comment here?

Alderley Edge Book Festival 2012

Yesterday David and I spent the day at the Alderley Edge Book Festival. We went there to sell my books, Elizabeth Horrock’s fantasy books and an anthology by Winsford Writers. It was a good day and we met and chatted to lots of interesting people, drank lots of tea and ate cake. Can’t be bad!

Here’s me at Alderley Edge Book Festival with a table of books.

Promoting the anthology from Winsford Writers called Banana Time and looking a little startled!

Here is the bookstall at the festival with the anthology, Elizabeth Horrock’s book and of course mine.
