Pumpkins and Pyjamas

This years pumpkins are purchased and awaiting the knife!
Harry has been telling me all about a book he read at school 'The boy in the striped pyjamas' and while we were out we saw the DVD and purchased it.
It is such a wonderfully written piece of work based on a very 'difficult' time in history and so sad, so very sad. Choosing to work the story through a childs viewpoint was entirely genius.
I made a quick sketch when I paused the DVD to make a coffee.

I suggest Anita you watch this DVD with Harry as it is very emotive and he might need to talk to you about its content. Been over to Ron and Gaynors for 4 days with Laura and the girls - long journey but well worth the fun and family gathering of 18 for Sunday lunch!!! Been invigilating at Sheringham festival today, so hope to get back to posting in my blog and checking out flickr tomorrow.
My Schminke paint set has arrived - its WONDERFUL !!!!!!!!!!
