So so funny! After a hideously early morning (meaning I am not in the best of moods) this made me giggle – thank you.
Aaaaah glad it cheered you up lovely. Auntie Lizzie is still in the bathroom peering at her lines….
*wonders if polyfilla will do as good a job on my cracked face as it does with the cracks in our walls. Hmmmmm.*
hahahahahah! If only eh? I’ve contemplated weetablix as nothing will shift it off the breakfast dishes once its gone hard! Maybe epoxy resin?
Hehe! That’s a funny way of describing wrinkles!! Only a child could think of it ;)
I know, it took us a while to decipher what on earth Evie was prattling about!
I love it. My own youngest described his nanna as “not fresh”. I’m still smiling.
Kids say the darndest things. Cracks in your face, not fresh….so adorable and so much more humourous when said about someone else!
I see my children (when they were little) in so many of your sketches. Thank you for sharing them!
Thank you for visiting! Always here if you want a smile. :)
haha! :D only a little child can get away with saying something like that. ;)
ah I feel Auntie Lizzie’s pain. my friend’s daughter once asked me why my butt was so jiggly, in front of about 30 people. mortifying. yet, all you can do is laugh. and run to the nearest gym. :)
love your illustrations! please tell me you’ve done childrens’ books??
I’m laughing at this! Sorry I do feel your pain but Im glad you can see the funny side too! Of course I want to do children’s books but the publishing world is a frightening place and I’m getting there…slowly…I really want to though but I am enjoying this blog rather too much and I like where its going too. So we shall see eh? Please keep coming and looking because I do love all these wonderful comments. You should see the size of my head now!!!
Oh dear, out of the mouths of babes and all that . . .
haha~~~cute… we all get old
Really cute! Poor Aunt Lizzie…
She’s getting over it….slowly….
My children come out with comments all the time – just like that. Teaching a class of 3 and 4 years old means that one cannot avoid the ‘honesty’ from the class.
“OK children, look – I have blue eyes and brown hair” (me)
(Laughing child)…. “It’s not brown – it’s grey!”
Speechless. I’m 31 – I’m going grey – but I didn’t realise the children would pick up on it quite so much. I think I’ve passed thr 50-50 stage. Now 51% grey – Boooooo.
Im an early greyer too….hair dye hides the ageing truth for the now (hee hee)
