Flying down the rabbit hole
Ok Dad. Since you were underwhelmed by my collection of Alice in Wonderland Rabbits, let’s try the more colourful offering on the right.
I feel like Lela dowling’s Alice this week. Yes. That’s me with the pigtails flying through the air. Only my legs aren’t that skinny! With DIY wheelchair construction, followed by car accident, followed by more wheelchair construction and then 2 days in a research forum in Melbourne my brain is as wobbly as poached eggs!
If I’m that Alice, please do not worry mum. The family likenesses end there. Unless you can think of a family member as fat as the duchess, as mean as the queen of hearts of as wirey as those playing cards? Nope. See. No family likenesses!
