From The Dodd family 2012.
Wow, 2012 had such an exciting buzz, can 2013 top it – let’s hope it does!
A hard year to follow – Olympics & Jubilee,
Games Maker for Edward and off to Hull University!
Skiing in St Anton, a break in Provence,
Sailing, sun and scuba in Kos – tans to enhance!
Suddenly Lucinda is borrowing clothes & passing down shoes,
Should I be flattered when I don’t know who’s is who’s?
Henry is cycling on his own to school,
Still curly, cuddly and playing the fool!
Mum & Dad are playing competitive radiotherapy,
They smile, laugh, build a house & carry on stoically!
Peter is bored…worn out the lycra & legs,
Can’t stand the housework – ‘send me to work’ he begs!
Can’t cycle in the rain, done thousands of miles this year,
To a M.A.M.I.L (Middle Aged Man In Lycra), those hills hold no fear!
Not content with English ones he’s been in Majorca too,
Seeking higher, hotter MAMILS and mountains with a view!
I failed to train him to cook and clean…
’Send him to work’ I beg – not being mean..
It’s just that I’ve got places to go, things to do,
Like Subz Baby Swimming and writing to you!
Besides – look at his bloodline – Moira’s 97 next year..
That’s a 33 year retirement .. almost a career!
That’s the family news and everyone’s well (ish),
Now how about William’s Fund..let me embellish..
The researchers are brilliant, results are mindblowing,
Raising money keeps me busy & there’s no sign of slowing!
We have a new website, facebook page, twitter,
JustGiving, Textgiving, & mailchimp to cut litter!
We launched a ‘campaign for a day’ on 12.12.12,
William’s 12th Anniversary – so moving how deep people will delve.

So… for 2013…a Royal baby is due…long may the buzz continue,
Peace, love, hope & dreams we send to all of you..
And a smattering of Fairy dust to keep the magic too!
STOP PRESS..Peter is planning to go back to work in January…Phew!!
(Oh no he isn’t…Oh yes he is!!)
