We are in the middle of half term here – a whole two weeks! And suddenly there are children everywhere, parked chez les grandparents.
I passed two children playing in my neighbours garden. Aged nine and six, they were busy mixing magic potions, using mainly an assortment of green herbs and earth.
Then yesterday I had a brief discussion with my granddaughters, aged nine and five. Guess what, they were mixing magic potions. Theirs were a mixture of flour and food colouring.
The session ended suddenly; the potion had stained the white dining table. Emergency action was needed.
