I visited the Nursery to teach the children some songs for our Pre-school Easter Celebration. I talked about the colours of Easter and we sang some songs. One of the colours was blue and was illustrated with a butterfly.

I asked the children where they would like to fly if they were a butterfly. Australia was the first. America the second. ‘A warm country like Africa!’ said a third. London followed. And then a child said simply, ‘Addiewell’.

‘Why would you like to fly to Addiewell?’ I asked. The child simply replied, ‘My granny lives there!’ What a proud granny she must be to have a grandchild who has found the secret of flight in angel wings!
