Introducing the Wood family

Warning: This post contains some nudity!

Avert the eyes of your poppets as I initially introduce the Wood family....in the raw!
Those prudish types may now relax as the Woods are swathed in rainbows of craft paint.

Here's Mrs. Wisteria Wood as she spends a little bit of "me" time pottering about on her sewing machine with a watered down Pimms in hand. Apron still on fresh from the kitchen where she just baked an apple pie...from scratch! Can't you smell it?!

And lovable Mr. Wesley Wood....a sensitive new age guy and a half as he bathes the children whilst his beloved wife sews! And there'll be no bonds singlets and stubbies for this Aussie dad. Just night need to have a quiet word in his ear about the old fashion adage of "blue and green should never be seen". Bless!

Baby Warren Wood fast asleep in his cot. Fed like a machine...self settled... and will now be out til morn....late morn! Even wearing a collared shirt and a belt around his wee middle. Dream child!!

Little Miss Wendy Wood relaxing quietly on the lounge after she's finished the dusting for her Mumma listening to a spot of music and contemplating how she'll change the world.

A chip off the old block is Wallace Wood in his dapper outfit and yes ladies...that's right....he's making his own bed! And smiling! Mrs. Wood will have young lasses queing up at her door in years to come what with Wally's domestic abilities...and her apple pies.

Oh, beg your pardon Walter Wood! Ever so sorry young man...we'll leave you to it.

And the Wood twins....Wilhemena and William. Never a happier, more loving to each other, only squabble over who gets to fetch the scabble board from the games cupboard,  pair of poppets.

Missing in action is Winona...the rogue of the family. Couldn't wait to get away from home. No doubt run off with a yobbo of some description...or perhaps..., just rolled under our lounge.
