Some of you might remember a product called Bounce : a perfumed conditioner cloth thing you put into your tumble drier with your washing to give it soft springiness. It’s curious, well to me at any rate , that ‘Spring’ has so many meanings. This happy word conjures up sunshine colours , vibrant violins and is forever associated with one of the world’s most loveable literary toy characters. I refer of course to Tigger, the irrepressible and adorably optimistic companion of Winnie -the -Pooh. 

I may have been thinking of him when I wrote this …….enjoy!
