This year I have been deluged with drawings, a chocolate spoon stirrer and a lovely cook book full of cake recipes for me to make.
I have also been deluged with so many witty captions it has been very hard to choose but choose I must.
http://kvennarad.wordpress.com/ you are my lucky winner with your caption, “My Mummy says there’s a difference between ‘doing nothing’ and ‘thinking’ – but they look the same to me.”
Please email me your address and I shall pop a book in the post straight away!
A big, big thank you to everyone who entered, please keep those witty comments coming as they are always appreciated and maybe I shall have to make this a regular feature. Perhaps I will give away a drawing next time, what do you think?
Happy Mothers Day, tomorrow I’ll be back to drawing, I promise.
To celebrate the lovely new board book “My Mummy Says” which is written by Justine Smith and illustrated by myself, I’d like to give one of my fab readers a signed copy of the book.
See this lovely picture? Give it a caption that makes me chuckle and put it in the comments section below this post starting with the words “MY MUMMY SAYS…….”
I’ll pick and announce the winner this Sunday evening so get your witty thinking caps on…
What did YOUR mummy say to you?
With Mother’s Day fast approaching, the lovely folks over at Macmillan Children’s Books, who as you know published my first children’s book MY MUMMY SAYS last month, want to know what YOUR mummy said to you.
Whether it is words of wisdom that have stayed with you, gentle encouragement that has guided you through life or just plain old silly expressions that make absolutely no sense to anyone but you and your mum, I want to hear them!
Today, Wednesday 12th March, please do get involved on your blogs, on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram – just remember to include the hashtag #mymummysays so we can all rejoice in the wisdom of mother’s everywhere!
I found two Christmas trees in my compost heap today. One was taking over the garden having spectacularly exploded needles everywhere and the other one I found lurking underneath the hedge cuttings (complete with a lone bauble), like an unsolved mystery.
You can’t have a sneaky bonfire in our house without an audience, shame I didn’t have any marshmallows.
It’s St David’s day here in Wales and that means celebrating everything fabulous about being Welsh, including sheep, Joe’s ice cream and Welsh cakes.
Rugby shirt for Millie this year, (she’s moving on from the Welsh costume to something a little more to her taste).
Evie, full blown Welsh ensemble with plaited bunches, ribbons and bows, ( I am not overcompensating for Millie honestly…).
Gruff, Welsh rugby shirt and a wopping big smile.
And guess what? The sun shone too!
