Late on Sunday as the light started to fade,
Little Man announced that he had promised to take cakes in to school the next day
to share with the other members of his Book Club (they take it in turns)! Arrrghhh!!
So little cakes were hurriedly made and decorated.
With the warm, sweet smell of baking still in the air and the fire lit,
she hoped that they would sit awhile and look at her new books together -
two more vintage 'Heidi's' to add to her collection,
her favourite childhood read,
bringing to mind happy memories of her grandmother,
reading to her in bed, with her soft Geordie lilt.
but no, little man insisted on reading 'Ratburger'!
by David Walliams, his favourite author,
especially after meeting the man himself at a recent book signing ...
... he was lovely and very funny!
And so they sampled a cake each,
sketched a little and read of the trials and tribulations
of Zoe and her pet rat Armitage, Tina Trotts, the bully,
and Sheila, her wicked prawn cocktail crisp eating stepmother!
