Draw With Me – August

The lovely Sonia over at This Mummy Loves has come up with a new linky with her daughter, which involves a theme being set for our littlies, who then draw a picture to represent that theme. This month’s theme was ‘Summer’, so I got Sausage on the case, who came up with this beautiful, seasonal offering:

Sausage's SummerSausage’s Summer – Aged 5

This is a multimedia composition, using both pencils and pastels, and although chicks, lambs and rabbits usually represent spring, we had such a naff spring this year that I think all of these things became far more synonymous with summer! One thing that I adore about Sausage’s art is that everyone depicted, be they human, animal or mineral, is always smiling. I like to hope that’s because my daughter is also happy and views the world around her through happy eyes.

Anyway, that’s our effort for this month. Sonia is planning to do this every month and it’s something that I can see Sausage and I getting involved with on a regular basis. Click the button below to go over to This Mummy Loves and see the rest of the entries.

Five Easy Steps to Brighten Up Your Kitchen

Anyone who has lived in rented accommodation knows that the flats and houses tend to be magnolia palaces, painted in the most drab and inoffensive shades of ‘BLAH’ and you’re often under other contraints, such as a contract that states you can’t paint the walls or put nails in the walls to hang pictures.

Although my kitchen is the one room in the house with a modicum of colour on the walls (a nice shade of urine yellow…), Sausage’s latest passion has really helped to brighten the place up, so without further ado, I give you ‘Five Easy Steps to Brighten Up Your Kitchen’:

1. Copulate.

2. Get pregnant.

3. Give birth.

4. Wait around three and a half years for your child to grow up and develop an interest in painting.

5. Stick said paintings liberally around your magnolia palace.

A VOILA!
