Owls, Cats, Blood, Gore
I've been making owls and pussycats in pea green (leaf) boats.
Ruby started doodling on the nearest pad of paper. In her version, the owl and the pussycat go to sea in a beautiful pea green boat, but then the owl wakes up to find the cat is eating his wing. 'Help' he cries, 'Help me Grandmother'. His grandma responds 'Weeeeell you were silly enough to think you were going to marry a cat, so....'
I love the gory drawings, the blood dripping from the cat's mouth. What happened to my sweet innocent little girl? The scribbly handwriting on the side is this recipe from Kim. Check out her spring onion pancakes and pork dumplings - all my favourites.
