Little Things To Make You Smile.

England are out on penalties (again), Little Boy's teething (again - 12 teeth in 4 months and more coming through) and I can't think of any more reasons to avoid doing my tax return.  I'm going to need some cheering up.  So I've assembled this collection of happy little items that made me smile, hopefully they'll work on you too.  Looking on the bright side - Wimbledon starts today (hurray!), once these teeth are through (because he always gets 4 in one go) little boy will only have 4 more to come, and my tax return is going to show a small profit which is nice.


Before that we have the business of last Friday's Guess The Theme.  The theme was 'The Court of King Caractacus' by Rolf Harris.  I based all the items from the line "Now if you want to take some pictures of the fascinating witches who put the scintilating stiches in the britches of the boys who put the powder on the noses on the faces of the ladies of the harem of the court of King Catactacus..." and, hopefully, I got them in the right order.  And then there was Rolf.

Illustrated Seagull Laser Beam Alliance Plate by BrightonCrock
£15 (+ £4.50 p&p)
The seagulls are more organised than we first thought. Humans were getting wise to the chip stealing birds so they have now resorted to using laser beams. Do not be afraid because this is Brighton Crock's little hand drawn side plate, Seagull Laser Beam Alliance. Join the S.L.B.A!  This is an original piece of artwork and each plate is hand drawn by me with porcelain ink on to a white porcelain plate. It is then heat set to increase durability. Designs may vary as each piece is hand drawn.
