Wouldn’t that be bliss. No plans. Freedom. Flexibility. Everything or nothing.
I am not sure my family hears these words very often at all. But in the last week we have been reading and re-reading this delightful book written by Jane Godwin and illustrated by Anna Walker. Today We Have No Plans is a simple story that works through the activities of each day until the weekend comes. Then there is permission to lounge around in your pjs, eat breakfast for hours, read the paper, play and simply be. The illustrations are particularly special, so I am engaged, as are my little ones.
Do find a copy and have a read, perhaps one day when you have no plans….
PS. There is a new book being published in a few months called Starting School – possibly a great Christmas present!
