For those of you who responded to Pancakes – thank you. I showed my daughter Katie and she was quite surprised and I think chuffed.
As you might imagine she continues to use her metaphor. The other night whilst settling down to sleep she had not had a great couple of days. She announced that her pancake had burnt, was black and fallen apart…oh and she had put it out with beer!! (what can I say!) As we chatted I asked her what she’d like her pancake to be like. Mmmmmm she looked me in the eye and said “light, fluffy, with Nutella, lemon and sugar.”
“So,” I said “what is stopping you creating that pancake and not burning it”
She looked me straight in the eye and said – “that feels better I can go to sleep thinking about my lovely pancake”
“You can!” We were both settled and content.
