This was my eighth birthday and the happiest: at the tiller; dressed the way I like; aboard Freya for that one brief summer;  a neighbour's dog beside me. This is so memorable, I painted it and look at it every night before I go to sleep (below). It's my birthday on Saturday 29th August and I'd be just as happy messing about on a boat again.

Gorgeous photo and just how I would imagine you as a child. Just right for the creator of Bera.

I made the dog a Labrador in the painting, which you can't see very well. A purple Bessie.

I love that one of my supporters was moved to make a pencil sketch of my 8 year old self, as a birthday present and talisman for Bera's success. Priceless.
