Darrel goes to the gallery

This monster Darrel, from Monster Clothes, didn’t make it to Foyles Gallery until yesterday because I had some trouble with his dress. So then he had to come on the bus to work with me:

Sizo and Loris and the very good cake

I am so overwhelmed by this stunning birthday cake from my good friend Love & Cake, featuring Sizo (from Sizo and Dad and the no good house) in my boat Loris.  We already ate the ocean, which sounds like something The Tiger Who Came to Tea might do. It tasted infinitely much better than oceans usually do.
