a young mind.....

when i was 9 years old i received a sindy (barbie equivalent) bureau, id wanted the desk for ages, wow what a wonderful christmas present it was. inside the miniature desk were tiny stationary objects, the diary above being one of them. a few years ago i, just before i became unwell i had a clear out of all my stuff in the loft. i came across the bureau, this is what i found inside.
can you imagine a nine year old child writing this?. what an earth was going through my mind?

The things a young mind concerns itself with eh. Such a tiny Testament. Was it yours or something you transcribed for Barbie I wonder ...

PS ... that squirrel made me laugh Em - very sweet, very funny, and a fine metaphor.

Hi Em,

That is a great find. I'd love to find to find something from that age. About what you wrote, my 7 year old could have written that now. That is the sort of thing she writes in her little pads so I can relate to it.

Love the squirrel too.

All the best

Sorry Em ... squirrels are famous for their sweet natured furtiveness, sort-of 'anxious'. They seem to me an appropriate mascot for an anxiety blogger, that's all ... meaningful art bla bla.

hi nechtan

just by accident really i came across this little gem. if i had been clearing out i would never of stumbled across it. your little ones do the same, do you keep a little box of the drawings? the special ones perhaps. would be a nice keepsake in the future. x
