. I am so buoyed up when I see people’s creative ideas take shape . There is nothing more worthwhile than watching inspiration flower and grow . It seems the stuff of life ! 

  • Perhaps I can officially say I am an alien !!! Been reading the ( perhaps ridiculous)  theoriesof rhesus  negative blood types of which I am one A- . There is a theory that we are descended from ‘fallen angels’ or the alien race the Nephilim !!! Just finding out more. My dad would have loved this !! 
  • Mod Podge is my life . 
  • Neil Gaiman’s ‘Stardust ‘ novel is the subject of inspiration for an exciting illustration competition details here . Better get illustrating !!

….back home from a whirlwind trip to London . The smell of my dog’s head and the way she leans on me while I’m eating breakfast . Home . 

… marmite on toast then covered with hard boiled egg from my own chickens bottom ! 

…today I went to get the chickens up and they were all four of them in the eglu cube !! While I was away it seems the door of their old coop got shut so the two older chickens couldn’t get in to roost . Now I can put the old mite infested coop out of action !! Result . ( boring I know but not if you love chickens )

.today I said goodbye to a project that will always be dear to my heart ! I have made new life long friends from it and will always have very fond memories . We live in a world of temporary contracts but gladly not temporary feelings . 

. Today a tiny tiny fledgling wren flew right past my face when I went to feed the chickens . 

. I am tempted to go and see Status Quo in honour of my dad over Christmas in Newcastle . Thinking about Dad a lot recently .
