A while back, I donated a gift voucher for a mini session to raise money for our wonderful French playgroup Les P’tizamis. Les P’tizamis is a playgroup for French-speaking families, a great place for parents and children to get together and play, sing and listen to stories in French.

The gift voucher was won by Kitty, who was our storyteller extraordinaire. Kitty is such a character and always has amazing stories to tell, from adapted fairy tales to fascinating stories from her own family around the world. I had the pleasure of meeting her family this weekend, and particularly her lovely grand-daughter Nina who was visiting from Abu Dhabi.
