Sailing Paper Ships in the River!
Today felt extra special. It’s quite standard practice for me to dress like a sailor (I just love it so much!) but today felt different – I just knew it in my bones! As soon as I slipped into my sailor dress and illustrated tights (both courtesy of Modcloth), the idea suddenly struck! A newspaper boat! It was one of my favourite hobbies when I was little. We had several storm drains where I grew up, and myself and friends would love to create vessels from magazines, paper, anything we could, just to make them to race! Nothing has changed at all – today we had the best time taking our paper ship for ride in the river. I’m not sure the duck was as impressed (though it was rather curious!) but luckily we did retrieve our boat afterwards. It was probably the best way to spend a morning – all my childhood memories and feelings came flooding back – it was wonderful. You should definitely try it when you have free time (and newspaper!) – plus, it doubles as a hat – though preferably before it’s river jaunt!
