Poppy and Dad Portrait 620x826 Poppy Takes a Portrait Whilst Her Daddy Sleeps


I found this image one day. It’s so sweet that Poppy wanted to take a picture of us together. She knows how i hate having my picture taken but i’m so pleased she took this. I was sleeping, exhausted from the strain, and there she was jumping around taking pictures.My beautiful girl. Photo: 13th Nov 2012

Poppy loved the act of getting a new toy, no matter what the price. So naturally McBean’s Happy Meal Toys were always a favourite. We liked classics, so Tintin, The Smurfs and The Wombles have been particular favourites over the years. I bought a book on McBean‘s Happy Meal Collectables was always a favourite when lying in bed and was often taken from my bedroom shelf. During her time in hospital, Poppy collected little Smurfs which she would hang from her drip stand. Often we would walk around with 4 or more Smurfs hanging from the stand. These Tintin toys were also a promotion during that time and i found them in my computer bag which I always brought to hospital containing my iPad and various plans to build websites. Thompson and Thompson have always been my favourites and Poppy was always amused by this. These are particularly precious to me.
