Some of you may recall how my brain was completely taken over by the need to write limericks about ducks - last year. It was all Knatolee's fault. She began a World Wide Duck Limerick Competition...it ran for years...an exaggeration, but it felt like years. I must have written scores of limericks.
It got so that my brain made a limerick of everything I did, even at the most inappropriate and serious times my brain would suddenly come up with a limerick!
won the competition and a prize would be winging its way to me!
The other day I found a package awaiting me and this is what was inside - my prizes from Knatolee!
A beautiful hardback book, delightfully illustrated by Knatolee. Young Harry and I have read it twice already. It is set to become a firm favourite. Only one problem, Harry is not at all happy that we don't have rattlesnakes in Owl Wood.
There was also a lovely selection of handmade cards by Knatolee - featuring her ducklings and hens. All wonderful stuff.
Thank you Knatolee. It was fun and your book is stunning!
