One of the things I'm most looking forward to is reading some of the classic books that were read to me as a child. Getting to share the wonderful stories and also getting to re-read them myself. Pure bliss. I hope the girls love them as much as I did.
Oh how I wanted to be Milly Molly Mandy and run around a small village exploring and having fun. I would wish my house had a thatched roof. Then every time I went into the bush, I kept one eye out for gumnut babies, trying to decipher their scrawl on gum trees. Running a little faster past the Big Bad Banskia Men. Roald Dahl was always a favourite – of course – his stories live on in my mind to this day.
What are some of the stories that engaged you as a child? The real classics that live on in your adulthood?
