26-07-19 Keanu: Koala

Friday 26th July 2019

Janet Bourke pops round today handbag full of gifts for the little people including 10 knitted jungle animal finger puppets found on her travels of San Francisco, flash cards and a battery operated fairytale book.

But the biggest gift she gave me is her warm stillness which puts Keanu to sleep. Keanu in Janet’s lap as we chatted and shared racy stories falls asleep quietly and without fuss. Awake one minute, eyes slowly close the next.

And asleep he remains for the duration of Janet’s visit the little koala that Keanu is.
