A adventure with an electric chicken!

Hi friends!

This week I’m sharing a silly, sweet short story with you. It was inspired by Meg, who told me:

“I once knew a little red chicken who had been struck by lightning. She survived but as a result was quite loopy. She’d happily stand for ages on people’s heads, so they named her Mutske (‘Silly person’ in Dutch). Unfortunately she recently passed away, so a nice little story about her would be fun!”

Here’s the story I wrote for Meg and you!

Mutske The Electric Chicken

I recorded a reading of it so you can listen along if you like. It turned out like a kid’s story so any younguns in your life might enjoy it too :)

Other News!

This weekend I took a trip away from Katie and Lil P for the first time since fatherhood/lockdown. I missed my squidgy lad very much but I also had a lot of fun shooting a short film with my buddy Tom Mooring. It’s a bonkers tale about fried egg envy, toothpaste addiction, and DASTARDLY DECEPTION.

Tom wrote and shot it, and I played three parts - Tom, Evil Tom, and The Tooth Fairy.

I’m not sure when it’ll be ready but I it’s gonna be a lot of fun when it’s done, I’ll keep you posted!
