Smile for the sketchbook.

I’ve been drawing caricatures for the children at our school fête today. The children who posed for me all sat beautifully and were an absolute pleasure to draw. I adore drawing children and this was so much fun!
Funnily enough, Evie, Gruff and Millie were wondering when it was their turn!

I’m thinking of attaching a rope around their waists if this wind continues.

Screaming child.

How lovely, I have two children and a small wailing siren to walk home from school.

Happy monday.

Adventure time…

…for Millie with her school friends. Armed with the knowledge to tie her shoelaces, play Minecraft and live off jaffa cakes, she’s not sure she needs anything else, she’s got all the skills right there.

The day before tomorrow.

Getting the lunches ready for our return to school tomorrow. Uniforms are hanging ominously ironed and neat upstairs.
I’m already wearing mine…jeans, t-shirt, trainers and a wearied smile.

Shoe shopping.

For school shoes. Bring on the scowls.

School’s out!

September is so very far away at the moment. Time can drag.

Hometime hug club.

I don’t get one because “I wasn’t there.”
