Artistic

What did you mean when you said you’d got the watercolours out?

“What do you mean by being kitted out with a crayon and a fancy headscarf!”

What you do … I do. I’ll have you know that I was quite artistic too. I met your father at art evening classes, remember.

“I know. But I’m sorry Mum, I never thought to ask you what took you there.”

Procrastination

You’re drawing again, aren’t you.  “Mmmm … perhaps.”

You just won’t get on and animate us!   “Sorry, Mum …”

“… and I got my watercolours out too.”

Shame on you.

Beach Huts

“Do you remember the beach hut where that photo was taken, Mum?”

2017-03-05a

Of course I do, dear. It belonged to a friend of your uncle.

“The huts were on a spit of sand between the river and the sea. I remember wood splinters and cold sand on my feet when I walked between them.”

“They cost nearly a quarter of a million each now, those huts, Mum.”

I don’t believe you.   “Time passes Mum … and prices rise.”

Beach Clothes

You must remember us going to the seaside. When you were little you would run around in your knickers and vest. We had a photo of you … holding up a fist full of wet sand, looking all pleased. I thought you were going to eat it.

You were that kind of child. Always putting things in your mouth.

Clothes

So is this all right, then ?

“You’ve got clothes on.”

2017-02-17c

Yes. At the end of your cartoon … you said that I had to put some clothes on.  I said I didn’t need clothes because I’m dead. And you said you couldn’t draw me with no clothes on.

So I put this on. It’s a sundress. I found it in a photo on your bookshelf… Me on the beach with your Aunty … 1950 something. Remember?
