Today marks Hazel & Wren’s sixth birthday! While we celebrate quietly amongst ourselves, let’s write about a birthday balloon (or another occasion that calls for a balloon). Cheers!

Having grown up on a sheep farm, Wren and I have a fairly good understanding of the animal. By turns aloof, curious, alert and oblivious, sheep can be really dumb as a herd, but every once in a while a surprisingly smart ewe will separate herself from the rest and impress you.
This week we’re taking writing cues from the wooly bundles, with a surreal twist.
