Say cheese !
Great she said if I could just send in a photo she would organise everything .
A photo of what ? Not me ? Yes Clare we need your photo .
Well I'm not big on photos of myself , not because I've got three heads or anything but I just don't like it !
The kids thought it was hilarious and gave me all sorts of suggestions like send in a younger photo of myself or send in a photo of someone else !! My son thought no one would notice if I look an awful lot like Miranda Kerr . The time came when I had to do something so I put some lippy on (it's a wonder it wasn't all dried up as I don't remember last time I wore any ) and combed my hair and handed the camera to my son , do it !
We went into the backyard and my son was very professional and took a heap of photos laughing the whole time and assuring me it wasn't going to hurt . He then showed me beautiful photos of my ear , my feet , the side of the house and a little bird that he had spied , no wonder he couldn't stop laughing the grub !
Finally a photo was taken and sent into Handmade . It has been a bit of a joke in my house that Mum looked like a roo caught in the headlights and they couldn't wait to see my photo in the magazine .
The magazine arrived and everyone awaited the big reveal , ta da ! No photo ! Great article though she says with a big sigh of relief .
