Africa – January 2013
D: I was drawing them at Vikki’s and I thought – I’ll cut out a cactus out for my mum. And then I thought I’ll cut the others out for my dad and Nanny and Grandpa when I go there tomorrow.

Me: That’s nice. Why were you drawing trees and cacti?

D: I was drawing Africa – Africa’s got lots of trees and cactuses.

Me: Did you draw anything else in the picture of Africa, other than trees and cacti?

D: Yes, and some water – the water was in the shape of Africa.

Me: This shape here, on this globe?

D: That’s not Africa – it’s got lots of different coloured shapes in it.

Me: That’s because they’re all countries and Africa is a continent.

D: What’s a continent?

Me: It’s a group of countries.

D: Oh. Oops – no. I did the water round, like that, with a bumpy bit there [draws it in the air] – I just made it up!
