Celebrating A Royal Wedding!

16th May 2018
With just over 2 days to go until the Royal Wedding, I've been overtaken by excitement and decided to dedicate this newsletter to all things royal and wedding. 
(With just a few non-royal extras, like this week's fab Guest Post from Shelly and the first of our new collection of colouring pages for older children and adults ...)

This week we are beginning a new set of Illuminated Alphabet Colouring Pages ...... designed for older kids and adults. Each of these lovely pages comes in two versions - one with lots of pretty detail, and one a little simpler. And we've produced them as colouring cards, too, as we think they would make a lovely, personalised card to give or receive. We will be adding 1, 2 or 3 letters every week for a while. Why have we started with H and M?

This Week's Guest Post
Shelly's kids have discovered the Secret Seven, and like children through the ages before them (me included) they have been having a lot of fun creating their own club, club rules, badges and coded messages ... 
Guest Post - Enjoying the Secret Seven
Love and Marriage ...
Some thoughts on love and marriage from the younger generation.
What exactly is marriage?
"Marriage is when you get to keep your girl and don't have to give her back
to her parents!"
Eric, 6
Is it better to be single or married?
"It gives me a headache to think about that stuff. I'm just a kid. I don't
need that kind of trouble."
Will, 7
On love.
Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good
Greg, 8
Why do newlyweds hold hands?
They want to make sure their rings don't fall off because they paid good
money for them."
Gavin, 8
What about kissing?
If it's your mother, you can kiss her anytime.  But if it's a new person,
you have to ask permission.
Roger, 6
What are the secrets of a long, happy marriage?
Don't forget your wife's name ... That will mess up the love.
Erin, 8
How can you tell whether a couple is married?
You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.
Derrick, 8
