My husband is a fantastic fox – a tribute

Robbie Cheadle with a Haiku and a tribute to her husband Mr. Foxy on his birthday… …aaahhhh… love is grand.

Robbie's inspiration

Have you ever read the book, Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl? If you haven’t, I strongly recommend it. If you have then you will know that Mr Fox is a really amazing fox not to mention really “foxy” looking. My husband and Mr Fox share a large number of  wonderful characteristics.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here. Find out more at

  1. I love this funny and touching tribute to your husband Robbie. Anyone who thinks of using ‘The End of the World” as her wedding song is my kind of gal. Hilarious! And I can also appreciate how firm Terrence was in his resolve to ban cats from the home. Also, I love all of Raold Dahl’s children’s books. Happy birthday Terrence!
