This weekend’s election shows that results don’t always meet expectations. Life has a way of delivering unexpected or disappointing outcomes.

When I was a little girl there was a TV series in the UK called Jackanory. It ran for no more than 15 mins in the afternoon during the kids’ shows. It was a simple format with a presenter sitting on a chair reading a book to camera. For a little while each day we were transported to different lands, had new adventures and met new characters. It started a lifelong love of books among many children and Jackanory became a much-loved icon of British TV.
