After I had my morning wash, I went to the kitchen and found this on the table.


Apparently there is a show coming soon! Cat LIVE! I’m sure it will be a sell out!


IF: Mother

This was the topic provided last Friday. It was Mother’s Day yesterday for several countries but not the UK. Still Little Bee was very excited about the topic and drew this simple drawing of me doing some gardening…


Somehow, I’m not sure it’s me.

We do  have an apple tree in a plant pot but never apples as we have squirrels running around everywhere in the back garden just eating everything in sight.

And I think I grumble more than smile… but I’m glad that Little Bee sees me as a happy, smiley mama 🙂


A Cup for Little Bee

I drew this for Little Bee on the last day of half term break. She was out with Daddy Bee and the white cup that we bought at IKEA was still sitting on the kitchen table. I promised her we’ll draw on it. I found my porcelain paint pen that I had for ages and wasn’t sure if it was still working and drew a special little drawing for her.

She loves it.

I promised her that one day we will go to the art shop and get some porcelain paint and we could paint the cup together.


We’re in the land of tulips at the moment. We’ve done a lot of walking around but not much sightseeing. Even when we go shopping, we don’t tend to go into touristy shops… the only touristy thing we’ve really done was to go to the flower market and we went to the Tulip Museum. Apart from that we’ve just walked around as Amsterdam is a lovely city to just walk about.

Little Bee has shown me so many times that she is a good traveller. She didn’t complain about the horrible flight (it was very windy and scary on the flight over), we walk for miles and the only time she whinge is when she’s hungry or need the loo. She has walked miles with me and her daddy.

Yesterday, after walking forever we walked home and stopped at a Vietnamese restaurant to get a take away. There was a tulip on the table and to keep her entertained while we waited for our food, I took the napkin that she’s been playing with and asked her to draw a tulip… and she finished up the bottle to my tulip 🙂


Missing Monster

So last Thursday I went to Little Bee’s school as the Early Years had prepared a Mother’s Day feast!

After the children consumed the feast of sandwiches and cupcakes (I don’t think they’ve grasped the concept yet) I had a look around the hall and found a board full of pictures of missing monsters!!

This is Little Bee’s missing monster.

I have to say that I do like her monster 🙂 Then she said that her monster wears glasses just like her mama. I think I’ll take her statement as a compliment.
