Hi everyone

I hope you enjoyed the first newsletter.
Thankyou for the contributions we have received so far.
I just couldn't wait to show you a picture that Kieron drew in response to the very first contribution that we received. Tim and Charlie sent us a photo which sent Kieron into a creative frenzie. Thanks to Tim, Charlie and Kieron!
Please keep the contributions coming for the kids page - I'm sure you can tell better jokes than I can! ...and how about some art work or a story? Don't forget there is a section by kids for kids.

...Have you thought of a good present for Poppy yet? I reckon he would like some socks with excavators on them, what do you reckon??

Jasmin's picture

Wow Jasmine what a fabulous picture! Jasmine is 7 and like her sister is very talented. Thankyou Jasmine for your beautiful and very detailed picture.

Thankyou also to our Poppybooks panel of judges who have the extremely difficult task of choosing winners from all the entries sent in to us.

I hope you are all enjoying the Christmas colouring in competition. The entries that are coming in are very colourful and Christmassy - they bring a smile to my face.
Thinking of Christmas, I cooked my traditional family Christmas pudding in a cloth last weekend. YUM!
Now it has to be hung up to dry until Christmas day.
This year I have all my 5 children and their families coming for Christmas. It's going to be a very full house and what fun we will have...!

I wonder what you will be doing this Christmas. Perhaps you could email me at and let me know. I would love to hear from you.

Don't forget too, that if you would like to receive my newsletter (about once a month), you can register on the website at The very first newsletter will be sent out within the next few days.
