It's Pudsey Day!
Now I normally cast a few pennies in the way of this worthwhile appeal but Louis and his mate, the mini Zoe Wannamaker, got really enthusiastic about fundraising this year. So, fuelled by Blue Peter, the kid's programme with its uber-retro appeal they got busy baking. Then they roped in me and Mama Wannamaker to supervise them in their journey around our estate selling ginger shortbread, cookies, lemon drizzle cake, sausage rolls, cheese scones and cornflake crispies and raised an impressive £78! To reward them for their efforts, I decided to give into pester power and buy both kids the Lego Pudsey from Asda that Louis has been lusting after for the last month. He cost £4 and, for those of you stuck for ideas, is a great idea for a stocking filler for the forthcoming festive seaason. Staff in the store weren't entirely sure about his whereabouts but I managed to find him on the shelves next to the checkout.
Pudsey hasn't escaped having a imaginative makeover and being transformed from his sweet vulnerable personna into a creature that rather more sinister. With just a few tweaks to his component bricks he becomes 'Evil Rabbit' who, according to Louis is his arch enemy. Let's hope that this zombie creatures superpowers are not fully unleashed tonight, that Pudsey survives and lots of money are raised for very worthwhile charities!
