a girl and her (aunty’s) owl

One of my sisters had an owl just like this one forever when we were little. Owlie. Very special. My other sister found this exact replica years later and thoughtfully bought it, I think just before Owlie was about to travel overseas on an adventure possibly likely to spell the end of his stuffing at the bottom of a backpack. 

I'm not sure, but I think the original Owlie did the travelling anyway. 

And this one stayed behind to be loved up by nieces of the future. 

Love that owl.

PS. Have taken yet another of your book club choices and have bought myself If This is A Man/The Truce. I am having some well deserved rest this week from the boys, and off to visit a friend and then some time on my own. Planning to read it whilst soaking up some history in Bath! Just finished Eat, Pray, Love – have you read it? Great book. Really fabulous! x
