hello

this is me.

The thing that looks like a moustache is partly a shadow under my nose, and partly my left ear.

from the song We Can Swing Together

and another lily allen lyric

this time from her song The Fear

cricket, coffee

this was a commission I was fairly happy with

my third grandchild looking like a grumpy old codger but sweet soft and cuddly really
