Enjoyment can be any bit of silliness

Below are some things to make you smile which were sent to me by a dear friend.I hope she recognises her suggestions and doesn’t mind them being shared for and with others. The first section she told me, she used to have printed in the front of her‘Home /School’ information pack that she gave to parents of children due to commence school when they were only four.
We hope you enjoy
