(Goblin is 4 years old)
This weekend we met up with my University friends. They are a collection of Eurochums from Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Belgium. We have tried to meet up on an annual basis but with babies, bad weather, financial crisis and the rest we haven't actually all managed to be together for some time. So I was terribly excited that we finally got the gang together in Yorkshire.
When that didn't work they smiled or pointed or gave each other one of their toys to play with so they could join a game.
My friend who was hosting us all remarked to her five year old neighbour
"Isn't it amazing that they play together when they don't speak the same language"
"Not really" said the five year old "Jumping means Hello"
Out of the mouths of babes comes the truth
Play is an international language
