When my play finished last week Daddy Smaggle said ‘Shit. Here comes the bloody craft mess.’ And the poor bastard was entirely correct. When I’m not rehearsing for a play I craft like an old lady. I think I have A.D.H.D and I just can’t sit still. Anyway, a few weeks ago I bought the book Sock and Glove which shows you how to make little animals out of socks and gloves. It is the cutest book in the world. I know Mr Smaggle has an unhealthy obsession with monkeys so with my newly aquired free time I decided to make him a Travel Monkey to keep him company on his business trips overseas. He took about 2 nights to make but only because I kept screwing it up and having to redo it. Normal people who can follow simple instructions should be able to make him in 1 night. Travel Monkey is a ninja and wears Japanese floral fighting pants. And although he is very busy taking care of Mr Smaggle, Travel Monkey managed to write me an email this morning. He arrived safely in San Francisco this morning and has settled into his hotel. He even sent me a photo.

He told me he is going to visit the Golden Gate bridge. I hope he’ll take a photo…

Love Lady Smaggle
