Cream tea

"Mummy, Miss Sharon went on holiday to heaven."

My four-year-old, HM, was sitting on my lap, her just washed hair smelt of lavender. Miss Sharon is her pre-school teacher and as far as I knew, she did not go to heaven.

"Do you mean Devon sweetie?" I asked patting her soft head.

"Yes. Miss Sharon went to Devon and she said there were loads of yummy things to eat there."

I have to say I was relieved that I did not have to tackle a more complex conversation so late in the evening. And besides, there are worse things than the prospect of spending an eternity with scones, strawberry jam and clotted cream!

    Friendship is like earthenware: once broken, it can be mended; love is like a mirror: once broken, that ends it.

    If heaven is full of cream teas i’ll die happy!!

    now, that’s my kind of heaven. makes death a little easier to grasp that way.

    no isn’t dying just that much easier to take if it was filled with sweets!

    How SWEET! At first while reading her statement I gasped, thinking she REALLY did go to heaven. Thank goodness she didn’t LOL!!!!

    Iota — can’t think of anything nicer!
    Too2Many — I was taken back when she first said it, but quickly realised she meant Devon.

    LOL – thank goodness you knew Miss Sharon was in Devon and not heaven – that could have sparked some phone calls and started quite the uproar.

    how very sweet. feared it was going to be a death and ghosts story.

    What a divine photo!
    Devon could easily be confused with heaven, especially in the summer. A lovely mistake.

    Phew – I’m glad it wasn’t Heaven – that would have taken a bit more explaining!

    Maybe she thought that heaven is yummy cookies, maybe she’s right.
