Last night after a particularly busy day , Miss Picket Fence 6 requested pancakes on rising. " Because it was Pancake Tuesday last week Mum, and we missed it , Please can we please ? You can get up early and when we wake up it will be all done. " I confess I may have groaned and quite frankly shelved it with the other "not in a month of Sunday" ideas frequently suggested by Miss PF 6 ; after all it was a school day, raining and I was busy right ?
Then I thought about Japan, the nightmare our neighbours are living right in the here and now . People with busy lives ; just like ours, bills, neighbours, persistent children just like ours , houses , businesses, pets....pancakes just like ours ; and how in a heartbeat, through no fault of their own it was all taken away from them , destroyed.
Thanks for dropping by xx Ava
