Jaws 'n' Claws

Had a great time at Jaws 'n' Claws at The Booth Museum. Tabitha held a giant snail after being too creeped out last time.

Then went for pizza and ice cream. Pretty solid Monday, if I'm being totally honest.



I did also do some work but that wasn't as exciting as this.


Brighton Streets


Always something to see round here.


Drusillas


Finally went to Drusillas for the first time today. It was great but I think the rides are a bit young for Tabitha at this point. The animals are great, though. We love animals. I have a bit of an internal conflict about animals in captivity, as it feels wrong but I love to see them up close. Like it's OK to be a hypocrite if you're aware that you're being a hypocrite.


This reminded me of my favourite painting.


Let's go fly a kite


I've never flown a kite before. It was pretty fun. I think the wind strength round here was a big help - I assumed you needed some hidden knack but the kite just sorta went for a fly of its own accord.

Now I want to get a proper kite because this one basically fell apart.


Tabitha has her portrait sketched


I see this lady around the village all the time. We saw her sketching a lady at the Rottingdean fair, and liked her style so got her to sketch Tabitha's likeness. The pressure of doing this job must be crazy for the wrong sort of people. I guess that's why caricatures are more popular than earnest pictures. The risk:reward is way off if you're trying to draw a picture someone might like!
