Some time ago, the Girl and I bought a long sleeved, plain white, cotton top.  Adult sized.

She then spent a fair amount of time customising it for her favourite tv programme, Blue Peter.

She drew each of the seven badges onto the body of the top and then wrote the presenter’s names on the sleeves, and the names of the Blue Peter pets around the collar.

We sent it to the Blue Peter offices way back in August.

She received a rather lumpy letter in the post today.

Lo and behold, she has earned herself one of the coveted Blue Peter badges.

I am enormously cross with myself for not taking a picture of the top, but instead I give you a collage of her different faces when she was opening the letter this afternoon.  It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen – perplexed, moving to understanding, moving to sheer joy and excitement.
