Laura: We visit the Donkey Sanctuary once a year. Last time, this little feller had just been born. Meet Charlie and his mum.
Celia: We’ve been thinking about the wars a lot in school this year. On a trip to Staffordshire Regimental Museum, the children were amazed and impressed that wartime bomb shelters were named after me, although not surprised that I was old enough for this.

That was very educational, Celia – I had to go away and Google who those shelters actually WERE named after!
I see a thriving future young master Donkey. Seasonal work in Nativity plays! They’ll love him in your local primary school and playgroups. 🙂
He’ll be a lot bigger now, John. I love the Donkey Sanctuary. They do fantastic work. 🙂
I’ve recently been in Rajasthan where there are many donkeys in work. I hadn’t realised before the trip how small they are. anne stenhouse
They hurt if they stand on your foot, though, Anne, as my daughter will testify 😉
Oh Dear. My dh once asked me to avoid standing on his patch of cyclamen. When I pointed out how small my feet were, he said that made the weight more concentrated. Hope your daughter didn’t suffer any lasting damage. anne
She was fine, Thanks, Anne. She was distracted by the donkey biting her foot … Thankfully, my daughter is made of strong stuff 🙂
You mean they weren’t for me, June?? x
