The End

This blog is now closed. The story continues over on Flip Flops and Flying Carpets.

Thank you for reading.


Sometimes, as I hum or sing Emily to sleep, I find that tunes I thought I'd long forgotten just come back to mind. Today it was one my grandfather used to sing to us. I remember singing it to my brother to get him to sleep, and then to my youngest sister (only it always made her cry!)

This is the lullaby:

Daisy, Daisy
Give me your answer, do.
I'm so crazy
All for the love of you.
It won't be a stylish marriage,
I can't afford the carriage,
But you look sweet
Upon a seat
Of a bicycle made for two.

(And I've just found out about a second verse I never knew about!)



  1. awww. that's beautiful. the one that always comes to mind for me is the mockingbird song. <3

  2. this is so sweet...and i love that image!

  3. Love the little picture you threw in there with it. So cute! :)

  4. I never knew about the second verse either!

  5. O; I'm going to need to look up the mockingbird song!

    G: I almost wish I hadn't found out about the second verse... it kinda ruins the song really!
