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.
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.
