Did you read (and re-read) Roald Dahl books as a kid?
I loved them. They were windows into these amazing worlds, and they really fueled my love for writing and reading and drawing in a major way.
My favourites were Matilda and Charlie & The Chocolate Factory. What about you?
Royal Mail in the UK recently launched this series of collectors’ Roald Dahl stamps, and I couldn’t help myself – I bought the stamp set and hope to frame it up on our new apartment walls. The power of Roald Dahl’s stories and Quentin Blake’s drawings will surely put a smile on my face and make me feel like a wondrous child again, whenever I look at the stamps!
We are about a month away from our scheduled house move, so it’s all very exciting and surreal at the same time :-) I’m sure the weeks will fly past, as they have been so quickly, and before we know it we’ll have settled in nicely.
