Rose Casserley on no more the demanding sound of his snapping fingers (33 minutes ago)
- I am a little rabbit, hrum - hrum,
I like sweet carrot, hrum - hrum,

tight roped bound to me
to keep you safe from death and life
oh but I would hold your
sleep flushed heads and
down on my ample thighs
and shield your eyes from the bad th...

Kids In Buckets: The School Run.
Splutter, splatter drips the rain
Down the gutter and window pane –
The journey to school will be so slow,
The traffic will just grow and grow!
But Gran and I have hatched a plan
To speed to school
(She’s resourceful my Nan),
She pushes me off in a large plastic bucket,
Bobbing down the alley,
Sailing past traf...
