If in doubt, make a giraffe

Yesterday, I went to the dentist. Not my favourite thing, even if my dentist is the gentlest man imaginable. On the way out, the bus I took just happened to pass near the one and only fabric shop in the city. It seemed preordained that I should just pop in.

And pop out again clutching a little treat. This morning, I made these with the children. They did most of the cutting and sewing. I did all the fiddly bits.

Hey, anything to encourage me to get my teeth looked after, right? I need to have two wisdom teeth out: just as well, because I spotted the shop also has zebra, leopard, cow and dalmatian prints…

Happy safaring! JJ
