Henry & The Dragon

Henry threw himself into the whole St George's Day celebration today...donning himself in a pair of red and white shorts...although he grumbled about not having a plain red pair...and arming himself with a sword, posters and my ornamental dragon teapot.

What are you doing Henry?

I'm fighting the dragon Mum

I'm not sure a little dragon looks that convincing Henry!

But I look good with my sword don't I?

Yes indeed you do Henry, although I think you could probably do with some armour to go with that!

I made a shield Mum, but forgot to use it!

Oh well at least you will be prepared if you ever come across a big dragon.

Yikes! Henry exclaims as Mum wanders off and a HUGE dragon breathing fire swoops down...

I wish I hadn't forgot to wear my shield now, and I WISH Mum would hurry and make my suit of armour!

Fortunately Henry survives his encounter with the dragon to fight and play another day!

Happy St George's Day everyone!

Of course we can't forget with the Sasha Festival coming up that today is also the anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare who died 23rd April 1616


  1. How interesting, did you do this brass rubbing? Gr Fanny

  2. Fanny, my older son (who is now approaching 21) did it many years ago when we were home educating him. I think it is great.

  3. Great photo's and Henry was very brave when the big dragon arrived!

  4. Cute photo story ad I love the rubbing. Your son did a great job.

    I can't wait to see Henry wearing his suit of armour!

  5. Many thanks Henry for the St. George's Day wishes. I really enjoyed my day thanks to your thoughtfulness in wishing me a good day. You're a really kind and an adorable little lad. I sincerely hope that I get to meet you in person at the Sasha Festival. I am hopefully arriving on the Friday afternoon.
    I love the way you have used your imagination and accessories with the story of the fighting and slaying of the dragon. Definitely a GOLD star here.
    Sasha love for now from Kendal.
