today i stumbled across this handsome little fella. i had no idea what he was, other than a snazzy looking paddington. then i came home and googled him and discovered that in london right now there is a paddington trail all the way up to 30th december. it’s to celebrate the arrival of “paddington” in cinemas on 28 November.
an intro to a book we have read many many times, and am pretty confident we will read many many times more still. julia donaldson and axel scheffler created this master piece, you may recognise their names from the gruffalo stories too. however this is not a review of the book, oh no, this is for the live show that has been very cleverly adapted from the book by the rather clever and wonderful people from the award wining scamp theatre.
a couple of weekends ago, (actually more than a couple, been a bit busy) we were invited by Mr HPMcQs lovely aunt for some lunch and then a very personal tour around ightham mote where she is a guide. such a beautiful place and wonderful place to work. the perfect sunday afternoon.
