Crudely Drawn

If it’s good enough for Davina then why the hell hot – oops, we mean not? As requested by the famous TV presenter and menopause champion, Crudely Drawn have designed it up as a tee, sweatshirt or mug, in blue or pink and a huge range of sizes. So, if you or someone you know is hot, tired, has memory loss or wants to tell people to f*$% off, then you might want to take a look at this range. They stock plenty of ‘naughties’ on the site too so approach with caution (the clue is in the name…)
