Magpie's Treasure Complete-o!

I have set down my glue and scissors (very briefly!) and actually-finally-really-truly-joyfully handed in the finished artwork for my children's book, 'Magpie's Treasure'! Marvellous and incredibly surreal and mind bogglinglinging.

My childhood ambitions were:
age 3 - be strong enough to lift a fire engine with one finger
age 5 - clean other people's baths
age 7 - write and illustrate children's books.

Thank goodness I opted for the latter.

Hey, I already DO clean our bath (with bleach and a toothbrush!), but I'll forgive you Sally-darling, because Magnus is certainly the best.

Thanks Matt, I'll do a swap for a signed copy of yours! Hope it's going well!
