Rainy, January afternoon. Victorian community hall, ten minutes from home. Seven Grown- Ups  on the back row. ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’.

Report :- ” They were very  good at shouting, singalonging, laughing, clapping with vigour”.

I was on the end seat with leg-room. Had to squint down the row to my left, to check that I’d got the hand moves OK, in the songs.

Excelled equally with the surrounding myriad small children… in ” Be brave Jack ” … “Oh no it isn’t / is” and outstandingly in ” It’s behind you” … enter very very small Ghost.

At night I lay in bed,  HAPPY.
