My Dad

Happy Father's Day! Check out this poem by Lindsay MacRae titled 'My Dad'. Celebrate everything that makes your dad your dad...

Neck nuzzling
 Crossword puzzling
  Ear picking
   Towel flicking
    Mum snogging
     Bog hogging
      Loud snoring
       Can be boring
        Silly laughing
         Aaarf aarfing 
          Shopping getting
           List forgetting
            Football playing
             Chore delaying
              Slightly greying


Taken from the book How to Avoid Kissing your Parents in Public by Lindsay MacRae, p2.



Alumina is a free, online 7 week course for young people struggling with self-harm. Each course has up to 8 young people, all accessing the sessions from their own phones, tablets or laptops across the UK. The courses take place on different evenings of the week and are run by friendly, trained counsellors and volunteer youth workers. You don’t need an adult to refer you or sign you up, and no-one will see or hear you during the sessions – you’ll just join in via the chatbox. We want to help you to find your next steps towards recovery, wherever you are on your journey.
