Day 8

As we emerge from #stormBarra, we can start dreaming about warmer weather and more carefree times ahead, especially for our children

Laura Douglas’ poem ‘My Boy’ in charity collection ‘Lights on the Horizon’ does just that, on Day 8 of our 24 #Quotes of #Advent.

‘I hope you follow rainbows,

And walk barefoot on the beach.’
