Wilfred Lautrec

We’ve been painting this afternoon. I donned my arty smock (which is coordinated with the floor) tasted the paint to ensure it was good enough for the paper and used a potato to create a beautiful work of art.

I’m expecting a call from The Tate Modern any minute now.


Tyger, Tyger burning bright

I channelled my inner William Blake yesterday by modelling my new tiger onesy that the big M made for me as i’ve grown out of the zebra

Because I had the sniffles we didn’t go out so we concentrated on crafty stuff and this was the result…




Because I am living in a material world

Madonna was on to something … who knew a fabric shop could be so much fun?

Frank Orsen, my teddy bear, and I escorted the Big M to her favourite shop in Tooting (maybe even her favourite shop in London, if not, the world) – the Sewing and Craft Superstore on Balham High Street.


It has every conceivable type of fabric and crafty stuff from tulle to tartan and buckram to bias binding.

Frank and I loved feeling all the different textures. It was like a real life Touchy-Feely Play Book. Our best bit was playing with the velvets and netting! Well that and burying myself in the remnants bucket.

The staff are all really nice and made a big fuss of me. The shop also has wide enough aisles for the buggy, which is unusual in haberdasheries.
