Is this not the most delicious looking strawberry you've seen in a long time?
This is Nancy Pearl, and she belongs to some friends, Miles and Bob (full name Barbara).
I'd got wind of a strawberry outfit for Nancy arriving in the post, and found I was beside myself with excitement at the thought of Nancy wearing a strawberry costume.
I don't know why I thought this would be some of the best entertainment ever, but I did.
I probably shouldn't admit this, because it's probably not 'cool', but as I'm not in the cool gang anyway there won't be any harm. I think the work of Anne Geddes is adorable. I love the way she dresses babies up as bumble bees and cabbages and anything else you can think of, they are just so sweeet. Too sweet for some, but not me. And you do have to admire how she manages to get those amazing photos of babies, because I imagine they're not the easiest subjects to photograph.
Wouldn't it be great to see her walking around, examining things, (like toddlers do), in her strawberry costume?!
Because the costume is padded, Nancy becomes extra cuddly in it, a little padded baby wearing padding, lovely cuddles there.
And my knitting? Well, some changes going on there, undoing of knitting, scrunched up face expressions going on, you know the sort of thing, when we get frustrated with what we're doing? I'll tell you about it on Wednesday. Stoical. I'm being stoical. Good word that don't you think?
So dear readers, I shall say cheerio, as Hugo needs to sit at the computer, to help me with something. Cheerio! Love Vanessa xxx
