Yesterday was an emotional day for some (me) because my tiny baby boy left primary school for the last time, ready to go out into the big and scary (for me) world of secondary school, come 5th September.
My Monster didn't give into the overwhelming urge to blub and cry (unlike me) as you can see.
Earlier this week I picked this up in Sainsbury's, along with a more boyish version. The idea was that it will keep the children happily occupied during our relaxing break from school.
I sat down with a cuppa and had a browse. Oh my....
I suggested to Minx that she give me the book but she said a very firm 'No, buy your own!'. Charming!
By that time the shop was shut but the urge was strong - okay, the urge was more than a little overwhelming....
Suddenly no piece of paper is safe....
Most unlike me, I know, but I would appear to have become just a teeny bit obsessed.
So much so that I doodled in my diary all the way through a long work phonecall
and doodled while I waited for my overlengthy work computer log-in to happen
and stopped for a break for lunch and doodled my way through couscous and salad - and coloured in
This morning I was determined to have a bit of a lazy get-up but rather than waste time sleeping I doodled and doodled and doodled some more!
I'll leave you with a very long-leggedy and suddenly un-puppy looking salty old sea dog - taken last Sunday at Hengistbury Head (yay Trashy - dog's allowed!!!).
