I know the feeling well when engrossed in a book. You have to take any and every opportunity you can to read some of it in relative peace.
The bathroom trick does work on occasion, but as most mums will testify, going to the toilet is a sure fire way that within seconds of closing the door and embracing the peace, either all hell will break loose, or the little darlings will be outside the door, demanding where have you gone to, and how long you are going to be. Or at that precise point of time, they have this sudden urge to impart some really important piece of information, that couldn’t possibly have been told to you before you made your way to the bathroom, or wait until you’ve finished.
I wasn’t wholly short of inspiration this week. As usual I was trying to find time to do something before the week was up. But once again this weeks theme has a literary twist to it. There was a reason why…….
Whilst commenting on a discussion about what types of books 8-12 year olds like to read, the lovely Rachel Hamilton responded, and also mentioned that she liked LEGO.
For those that don’t know her, Rachel is a soon to be published children’s author. Her first book is due out later this month.
As part of this conversation she brought up exploding toilets, at which point I remembered that it was also something to do with her book. So once again from a random conversation with a children’s author, I was inspired……..
I hope you like it, and I hope Rachel does too!
