Jack fell down, And broke his crown...

After the wild and stormy night whipped banshees around the chimney pots, today is blowy but hot, hot, hot.

Today, the kids are singing :

Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after.

Up Jack got and home did trot
As fast as he could caper
Went to bed to mend his head
With vinegar and brown paper.

Why?

Because today in Carmine our very own Jack took a tumble. Neighbour-of-the-month awards go to S. and F.; S. for leaping to the rescue and F. for getting our wounded and very wobbly soldier all the way down the hill in the midday heat and on to the hospital.

Get well soon, Jack! Hope the vinegar and brown paper works.

It was! Now the children have an enhanced understanding of what Mama means when she burbles on about falling down the ravine/terrace/steps and having to go to hospital to get rid of the strawberry jam....
