Sunnyboy's first birthday

A day at the farm on Sunnyboy's first birthday
August 2007

Today is the Pet Parade at Planet M Files and Red or gray depends on the day. We don't have a pet but we do have this lovely farm nearby.

An ever changing creative space

The Frontroom is a 'fishbowl' style gallery space where installations are created to be viewed through The Frontroom's floor to ceiling sash windows (for free).

Bear Snores On

One of Sunnyboy's favourite books is Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson (with illustrations by Jane Chapman). Sunnyboy loves bonfires so he especially likes this book because of the fire the animals make to keep warm and brew tea.

'Cuddled in a heap, with his eyes shut tight, he sleeps through the day, he sleeps through the night.
The cold winds howl and the night sounds growl. But the bear snores on.'
