Growing up and being a kid seems to be timeless. Everything is pretty much done for you and there is no care in the world. All you really need to think about is what game can be played next, or which cartoon to watch!

….And yet before you know it, 10 years have passed, then 20, then 30 and time has melted away before it feels like you even had the chance to get going.

The important thing though is that we can still look back on when we were kids and remember just what is was like and how carefree those days were.

Time continues on its path no matter what, so make the most of every minute, regardless of what age you’re at.

Handbags and Gladrags

(76cm x 60cm acrylic on box canvas) SOLD

Every little girl at one stage or another would of raided her mum’s wardrobe and put on a few of her favourite dresses and a pair of oversized shoes!

Clip-clopping down the hall, giant handbag in tow, she'd get her sister or friend to join in or even rope her brother into dressing up too…..Dads hat would probably be the only thing that fitted but at least it meant he could wear his favourite cowboy costume instead!!

All dressed up and ready to go, it was time for a bit of ‘Mums and Dads’. This basically involved pretending to go to the shops or taking a trip to the petrol station to fill up the car with ‘£5 of 4 star’. Only ending when mum’s favourite hat became buckled and bent, or ‘Cowboy Joe’ deciding to shoot everyone with his cap gun!
