Dorothy . . . . and a teaser for next week

3 Sep

We have a new member of Team Kilburn. A very lovely lady called Dorothy. She turned up on our doorstep this morning, offering her services. She’s quite an unusual character, she won’t mind me saying. Her aim is to spread smiles and happiness, and she insisted on a photo. So here she is:

This is the TKOE sock monkey made by the mum of one of Rosie’s friends. She is really quite the best sock monkey we’ve ever seen, and was made with thoughts of Rosie and her absolute passion for socks. She’s for all the Kilburns to share, so we thought all of Team Kilburn should have part of her. Thank you so much Jenne – she is beautiful, and made us laugh when she tumbled out of the envelope.

That’s a nice start to the week.

Oh yes. Just before you all close down today’s blog, just click on this.

It’s a teaser for something next week. Courtesy of Mr Tony Walsh, aka Longfella Poet, TKOE and Rosie’s friend, and Designer Mike, who you all now know about. And thanks to you all as well. As you’ll see. Next week.

    Just watched the video of the poem teaser. Just fabulous. It brought memories of the life force that was Rosie – no, correction, IS ROSIE – flooding back. Well done everyone!
    And Dorothy made me smile – love the demeanour!
    And it’s 12th September so I will thinking of Rosie and family all day.
