    It took me a moment, but the pleasure was greater for it! Baubleshank?

    I took even longer than Ian H to get it. At first I thought that the bauble had landed on your plate, and that you’d somehow eaten it. It didn’t make sense. A frame showing the bauble on your chair would have helped me! (I hate to criticise – I enjoy your story telling.)

    (I tried to comment before, but my Mac was playing up…)

    No worries about criticising, all feedback welcome! I see that it could be confusing. Sometimes when I’m working on them I struggle to fit the story into the space. And sometimes my brain almost explodes thinking about the angles I need to take to show it. One of the problems with the diary is that if I draw it in rough and realise something is wrong, it’s painful to have to shift frames about. On any other bit of paper I’d cut them out and shuffle!

    This is a good one although I must admit that I had to go over it twice for me to fully get it. My bad.
