we’re looking after our friends’ children this weekend so they can go off and have a nice quiet weekend. so the question is, how do you amuse 4 children for 2 days ?
i hadn’t got a clue, but luckily jane had. she suggested they all drew on a long piece of paper. which they all did, happily, for ages:
when it was my turn to suggest a plan i chose the telly. this too proved popular (as can be seen here):
looks like a pair but they were seperated by a few metres down the street
i’ve just had my place confirmed for this year’s London Marathon.
i’ve committed to raise £1,500 for the Outward Bound Trust
i’ll do more of an appeal in a few weeks time, but those who wish to sponsor me now can go to my justgiving page.
i consider myself a lazy non-sporty type, so this is going to prove very interesting !
plush is such a great word.
here is a butcher. what can we learn from his position on his shop roof ?
he looks like he’s up there waiting to shout at customers who are coming to buy his meat products.
a sign FOR a dog rather than of a dog, but it’ll still do.
i thought piece of wripped cigarette packet was a little teeny weeny t-shirt at first. but it wasn’t.
a giant paper sign stuck on a lamp post.
it’s mum, dad and baby bin.
quite interesting that these two people look slightly different. the chap going to the museum looks well turned out, while the bloke going to the tube station looks more mysterious.
it’s a pile of diet cokes
we’re very big on regional stereotyping in england. that’s mostly because every single person who live in a particular region really does have a common stereotypical trait.
take this classic cornish chap, shown here on a london cafe sign. he’s displaying classic west cornish behaviour – he’s dressed as a pirate and he’s eating a foot.
