I have just had a thought, it's about time I added
a few new nursery rhymes, not here but over in
diddilydeedotsdreamland. I have not been very fair
of late, dashing between here and Dodiesdreamworld
so I think tomorrow I shall spend the day in
Dreamland with diddilydeedot. Yes that would be
nice. Sleep tight children everywhere.
