Good morning!  I hope you had a good weekend.  Did you manage to guess the theme of Friday's blog?  The theme was....  The Magic Roundabout.  If you need an explanation of the clues, I'll put that at the end of this post.

If I have a good week, I should get my 10,000th blog view this week!  I know it's not that many in the world of blogging but it's a big milestone for me.  I'll have to work extra extra hard to make sure I have 5 really good posts this week.  Today it's all about aeroplanes and helicopters, in honour of the strange plane that flew over my house at 6am this morning.  I don't know what it was or what it was doing but I could hear it for 5 minutes.  It must have been circling our estate or something.

Sizes S-XXL.  The image is printed using Permaset Aqua ink, which is a long-lasting, water based ink, free of any harmful chemicals or toxins.  Each T-Shirt leaves the workshop ready to be gifted, having been rolled neatly and tied with string and then wrapped in tissue paper before being packed to post.

Black and White Men's Sleepmask by Testosterswoon
