Observational drawing: Wot so Funee?

Wot So Funee?Is it just me who finds this funny? I’ve been away to BritMums Live this weekend, and when I came home with the irascible Mammasaurus, who was staying the night at ours, this “observational drawing” was awaiting me, courtesy of my daughter. Normally I would find it nothing short of charming, an example of the work she is currently immersed in at school. But it appears to be a blogging congratulations ๐Ÿ˜• I am further confused by the fact that I am only the second named recipient of this award, Annie herself looking like the more important winner. I think it’s even possible that I was an afterthought. Hmmmm…

An observational drawing of a daisy

On the other hand, there were numerous other gifts and notes scattered around the house for random discovery, including 2 rather special bouquets of flowers. I was thrilled, of course, and somewhat mollified the next morning when I awoke to the news that:

“We spent ยฃ65 pounds Mummy. Yours was ยฃ40 and Annie’s was ยฃ25, so yours was the most. Then we spent a pound on Crunchies to put inside the flowers, and ยฃ10 on lottery tickets, so we actually spent ยฃ76.”

Oh, that’s alright then.

  1. Whilst you may have been an after thought on the drawing at least your flowers cost more. Don’t you just love it when kids tell you how much they spent

  2. Your kids are wonderful, mine just raided my goodie bag when I arrived home! A funny and fitting post for the laugh winner!

  3. Ahhhh you have got the sweetest children and that’s a fact!
    I’ve been staring at my flowers this afternoon smiling to myself – now if we can just get Actually daddy to give Papasaurus some lessons in charm that would be smashing! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • I’ll ask him for his daily rate ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sadly I think it was mostly influenced by the kids thought, so you’ll just have to start training up your two!

  4. I LOVE that you got a note detailing just how much money had been spent on you. Brilliant! Congratulations on your win too, very well deserved xx

  5. How unbelievably cute! I love the fact that its an “observational” drawing! What a lovely welcome home, even if you did have to share it!
    Congrats on the award as well!
    Claire xx

  6. How adorable!! Lots of effort and calculation went into that for sure! A novelist, illustrator AND and accountant perhaps?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. That is a pretty amazing daisy though! Children I guess are not very good at tact…something for me to look forward to ๐Ÿ™‚ Well done on your award…very well deserved.

  8. Congratulations!!
    How sweet and lovely your little lot are, mine just left me with a lot of mess and stuff to for Monday! x

    • Ah well it may have had something to do with the fact that Actually Daddy was off to New York without me the next day. He’s back and jet-lagged, which makes me feel slightly appeased at missing out ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. Love the picture and the importance of the crunchies. Many congratulations on the award, it was great to meet you. Would the combination of you and Annie be actually Saurus? Sounds like world domination.
