We need to get you in the right mindset for what’s coming!
As you might have heard, we visited our British family last month.
One of our visits was to grandma’s house. She asked us to come over for afternoon tea and of course, we were delighted to accept her invitation.
You must be nuts to refuse a nice cuppa! ☕
She gave us a tour as it was the first time Isabel had visited her house. She showed us the painting that we gave her for her 80th birthday a few years ago. It was hanging on the wall in the living room. It’s a painting of the family tree that we painted by hand.
We took a photo of it, but it’s too embarrasing to share as a 5 year old child could have done it much better! Anyway, it needs to be updated as our British family has now grown since then and we now have a new niece and a new nephew to add to it.
So we were there chatting, eating biscuits, telling some old stories, looking at photos …
And as we were talking I noticed some old photos and postcards pinned to a notice board in the kitchen. There was also a scrap of paper in the bottom right corner. I wondered what was written on it, so I got closer, I had a quick glance and I saw it was a poem in English!
Then grandma said, oh yes … that poem, I challenge you to read it all at once without getting tongue-tied. So there we were, 2 British and 1 Spaniard struggling to read the poem from top to bottom. It’s good that we were only drinking tea and not anything stronger!
Would you like to give it a go? Here it is! Best of luck!
