Brown Paper Boat. . .

 Rain rain go away, if you don't I'll sail away. . .

The owl and Miss Cat went to sea in a beautiful brown paper boat. . .

Hello everyone. . . . . .I spent yesterday, far away on a beautiful sunny island.  Just me and Owl, we had to get home for tea as we had forgotten to pack the tent.
Who knew clouds could hold so much water.  It  has rained and rained and rained for days. Well I decided I had enough so I built a brown paper boat. Packed a picnic and sailed away with owl to find where the sun was hiding.  We found Sun on this beautiful island. He said he was having a little holiday, he was tired of getting up early every morning and whizzing round the world every 24 hours. I told him he needed to come back with us because the clouds where making a terrible mess everywhere.

Owl and I managed to persuade  him to come home. I promised to make him a nice cup tea and some fairy cakes with lots of sprinkles on... Sun likes fairy cakes...yellow ones, of course.
Sun is happily playing in my garden as we speak, so I've put my washing out.


Just a little Fun and Nonsense from my journal ramblings...
am sailing off to Sunday Sketches

That sailing scene that you created is spectacular. I can see it being used to animate a cartoon about the adventures of Miss Cat and Owl. Blessings!
