Last week I spent a day out of jeans and muddy wellies, put on my smart clothes, left my husband in charge of our new dog- the scruff bag Bertie and went to London to meet my agent Elizabeth Roy. I sat tentatively as she expertly scanned my text for a baby board book series.
It was a great meeting, I always enjoy our get togethers, then she said seriously “I would like four of these as dummies before Christmas”.
“Before Christmas!”, she called out again firmly with a smile, as we waved goodbye.
I can see I will be failing miserably at creating the perfect, festive abode and food. Not to mention the Christmas shopping…
Anyway moving on swiftly... here are some very rough ideas/sketches I did on the train home, squashed between sneezing fellow commuters. Needless to say new dog Bertie and his muddy embraces feature too... do take a peep at him at the bottom of the page!
