Innocent Alphabet Challenge C is for...

Like to take part in our new alphabet challenge, they said?

How about the letter 'C' they told me?

Oh, and if you could somehow link it 'back-to-school' in someway, that'd be great. 

And we'd like you to post on the 29th August if you could... 

I'm always up for a challenge and accepted this one in the same spirit. We've had fun with these Innocent alphabet magnets before (and you can too - they're giving away the latest set of magnets with Innocent smoothies and there's more! Collect the barcodes from the packs and you can send off for your name in magnets if you like...)

So, to the challenge. Charlie began well enough...




His spelling sometimes went awry...


But that's easily corrected...


The real problem, though, was weaving in the 'back-to-school' idea. C... c... (school) clothes? (School) canteen? (School) cane? (Actually they don't have them any more, do they?)

Then, with Charlie's next choice (my grandad's old railway cap) inspiration struck...


'Charlie,' I said. Run upstairs will you please? There's another cap we could use, isn't there? Oh yes, he said, and laughed. It's a bit battered these days, of course. But this, dear reader, is what the well-dressed primary (state primary!) school pupil was wearing severalyearsnottoomanysayitquicky years ago in Hull. Ladies and gentleman, if the cap fits...

Of even if it doesn't!
