Award-winning designer

The most exciting day yesterday. My son Xavier rushed into my studio trembling with excitement, he’d received a letter saying he had been shortlisted to the top 100 of his age-group for his entry to the Blue Peter competition to design the logo for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. And you may be thinking, so – how many children sent in entries? The answer – 35,000! He didn’t win but he did receive a great prize for coming so close. He was sent a Blue Peter annual and the very sought after Blue Peter badge which entitles him to free entry to loads of attractions, museums, theatres etc.

Tell Xavier his logo is much better than the winner! I love it!!! Congrats to him. I live with a steadfast royalist who doesn't like the winning choice, so I will ask his opinion later too. :)

As someone caught up in the royal whirl sweeping the nation, can I please offer Xavier huge congrats - it is a very carefully drawn and delightful crown.
