'If you make happiness your goal, then you're not going to get to it… The goal should be an interesting life."

She may not wear out her parents …

but she’s got a lot more energy than her nanny.

Just returned from a VIBP [very important birthIMG_9226day party] where a good time was had by all. The birthday girl was her usual charming self,  apart from one tantrumette over these -which were the hit of the day – [they came with a shopping trolley and lots of other groceries from her other grandparents].

The toy kitchen from us and her mum and dad, and the sort-of- etch-a-sketch from her Uncle Cheshire and his partner, were almost as popular, but for some reason she loved the plastic eggs.

I liked the etch-a-sketch thing too – it came from Early Learning and had stamps and rollers – immediately christened a ‘bike’ - as well as a stylus. Great fun.


This sketch was made entirely by low tech means - graphite on wallpaper. Part of our Contemporary Textiles installation was this collection of cones, which I enjoyed drawing. [What did I just type!]
