I was reminded yesterday how phrases once the norm as a child sound so funny when finally we have grown up?
Play time..a time of fun becomes ‘break/free period’ as our schooling becomes more serious and focused.
Lunch hour (for those 9-5 office workers) not for the self-employed means just that.
Mine may be quick jog around the common, bowl of soup whilst watching the news with one eye on the lap top. More often than not a sudden realisation come five o’clock that lunch came and went and I am starting to feel a bit peckish and a chocolate bar is calling.
Maybe we should find more time to play but we just need the right distraction and willing play-mate… it can be so boring being grown up.
Last night a friend told me her four year old daughter who was being high-spirited and when told off by Daddy replied:-
‘No you grumpy wizard!’ Love love love it!
She will go far making people laugh is half the battle, keeping them amused not so easy.
