School days… the real ones, not the drunken night out.

I went home these past few days as it was my little brothers birthday, and much cider and beer drinking was needed as a result.

Whilst not drinking or eating I sorted through some old school books and paper from primary school, and I found that almost every planned story I wrote involved either witches or shrinking, or in one particualarly creative occasion I combined the two.

Speaking to friends it seemed that shrinking was the subject of some of their stories too, or meeting a dog.

I just wondered wether there was some popular book around at the time that inspired the creative talents of a young generation?

The witch influence definitely came from books. The Colin and Jackie Hawkins books in particular. I loved them. Monsters, Witches, Vampires and Pirates. And I always felt safe on the family visit to Irealnd because according to the Vampires book, the Irish Vampires didn’t drink blood, but ate shamrock.

Ducks

I saw 2 ducks in the fountain in Victoria Square today. It made me laugh so much. I love ducks.
