Happy Days

Her bare feet dance across the soft green grass, her body poised gracefully like a dancer mid pirouette. The Frisbee hovers towards her and she reaches out to grab it, one long slender arm reaching for the disc whilst she balances in harmony with gravity.

Chin Music: A Cricketing Lesson

I love cricket. I truly do. One of my favourite memories is being 9 years old and waiting in anticipation for Dad to come home from work so we could play cricket. I would sit on the front steps, cricket bat placed across my skinny, pale thighs, hoping that the next coal-caked car that turned into our street would be my father.
