A boy named Moofus – Nanna’s House

We’re sad to say goodbye to Milan after such an excellent week on the Guest Blog. You can check out his website here and his online store where you can buy most of the illustrations from Milan’s posts this week. Thanks so much Milan – you are by far the coolest 13 year old ever!! – Jenny x

When we were in London on Friday nights we used to drive to my Nanna’s house in Suffolk. I used to love it as we spent the days making airfix models or drawing or walking the dogs on the beach (there was a nuclear power plant there! The water was always warm, Mum says that’s why my feet are so big because we used to swim there).

At Christmas, sometimes it snowed, the dog we had then was called Mr Jones after Indiana Jones (Indiana Jones was named after his dog). Mr Jones was white so we’d lose him in the lane.

In the Summer we’d go to see the Punch and Judy shows at Southwold pier. These are drawings I did of around my Nanna’s house, where I’ll be going back to visit this year. I’m so excited to see her again!

Thankyou Jenny and Lucy for letting me show my drawings, I hope you enjoyed the week.
