Welcome to Small Talking. I've been keeping a comic strip diary of my children (and their friends) since Reception and started publishing them online three years ago. I'll keep adding new cartoons and will stop doing them only when the kids cease to amuse me.

This is one from when my daughter had just started school. She's a bit more socially sophisticated now.

Impossible homework

We googled the full question and found the homework sheet available as a download online (www.primaryresources.co.uk/maths/ mathsE2.htm). I don't think the teacher can have checked it before handing it out.

Curse those TV adverts.

In the restaurant

What a fortnight we've had. We've all been ill one after the other.

Swollen Face

Proof if it were ever needed that little boys are allergic to getting washed. His face has gone back down again now. Very weird.

Firework Night

I can't remember the time I last saw a whole display from start to finish.

First bash at animation

No sound yet. I've changed the look a bit, because it's easier having contained spaces to fill. My son doesn't look quite right yet. It's a work in progress!

Royal Mail

I somehow suspect that by the time the Queen has figured out how to send an email and several hundred centenarians have figured out how to open it, a letter would be quicker.
Hello All. Sorry for the gap - it's been difficult to find time to do the cartoons recently. I got whacked out and then my pens ran out, which I took as a sign to have a rest.

I'm hoping that I can get them commissioned so that I'll be able to justify spending more time on them, rather than having to do them at night / before the children wake up. (I work with my husband through the day).

I've also been learning how to animate the little blighters, which is exciting. Lots of ham acting up in the attic from the two of them.

New pens are ordered up for today, so should be back to normal soon.
