Well, my dears, I'm going to love you and leave you for a few days. We're driving across to Cherating for a dose of sun sea sand. I am currently deliberating about which books to take, and hoping there will still be room in my bag for a change of clothes.
Here's something fun to keep you entertained while I'm away. (Like the teacher I once was, I set you homework.)
Have you heard of Magnetic Poetry? These are kits of magnetic words you can arrange into pleasing poetic combinations on the front of your fridge, or on any other metallic surface. (If you're interested, here's how magnetic poetry began.)
My friend Diane knowing my fondness for both moggies and verse bought me the Cat Lover kit some time back, and I used to have not-terribly-wonderful odes to my furry friends on the fridge door. I took them down when I got fed up of words falling into the egg tray and of fishing them out of the yoghurt.
But the internet makes all things easier. The company that produces the kits has a fun website where you can play with sets of words and make your own poetry.
And that's your task! Select any kit you like, make a poem and post it ... either on your blog or in the comments here.
Try not to miss me too much!
