So today I am mostly reading ' FRAMED' by Frank Cottrell Boyce which is proving to be a laugh out loud funny and touching read already. There's lots of little gems but here's one when Dylan's Dad (who can fix anything) 'fixes' the sea when it's too cold:
"...my dad can fix anything......Like the time when we were at Prestatyn and Minnie wanted a swim but I wouldn't get in the water because it was too cold. She kept saying, 'Come in. It's fine once you're in.' And I kept saying, 'No.'
Dad got up, went to the caravan and came back with a kettle of boiling water. He poured the water in the sea and said, 'Dylan, come and test it. Tell me if it's all right or does it need a bit more?'
I said 'No, that's fine now, thanks, Da.'
'Not too hot then?'
'No, just right.'
'Give me a shout. If it gets cold again, I can always boil up some more.'
Then Minnie splashed me and I splashed her and we stayed in the water itll the sun went down.
He fixed the sea for us. Now that is a thing to be admired.
Find a copy in the library-you can't have the one from Leiston as i"ve got it and you will want to know more about Dylan.....I can guarantee it :-) OR look out for the titles below-he's really got a gift of drawing you in using humour.
