Know Your ABC's

A fortnight ago I posted about the nursery my husband and I are preparing for our little bundle of joy. In it, I mentioned that there was a fair bit of Dick Bruna about (he's Dutch and his illustrations are still very popular globally), also mentioning how I'd searched in vein over the years for the freeze I had in my bedroom as a child. What good taste my mum has. And what do you know? A high school friend sent me a link on Facebook to the freeze for sale on Amazon. Amazing! I was on vacation and snapped it up immediately from my phone through dodgy hotel wifi. It arrived this week - in immaculate never-been-used condition. It brought so many memories. I stared at that alphabet, that ran in a single line on two side of my room, a lot. And now my little Ricochet will be able to enjoy it too. Though in his/her little room I might need to run in a solid block like below. Either way, it's sheer joy to have this in my life again – many, many thanks, Kachina! Lel x
