Roll on summer

\"\"

I am going to join the bucket and spade brigade

because I have now a Granny been made

Come summer we can go to the beach

Making sandcastles, my grandkids I'll teach

***

What fun we shall have playing in the rock-pools

I can act like a child, breaking all the rules

I will show them shells in their tiny hands

They will bury me up to my neck in the sand

***

We will eat sandwiches made full of grit

And I will show them how to spit!

We will clamber over the stones and the rocks

There will be no need for time, nor any clocks

***

So long as there is sun, we will have a great time

And I'll have my Grandkids to myself - 'all mine!'

So I am happy to join the bucket and spade brigade

Because I have now, a Granny, been made!
