In stark contrast to my last post, this weekend was so nice, sunny and warm. I reckon that might well be the last dose of summery weather for now  x

It’s cold!! The one thing I like about Autumn is wearing jumpers and scarves, definitely now is the time to put away my flip flops and get out my boots and then clear up the million leaves that have now landed in my garden x

monday mornings…

mondaymorning-sallypayneI am not a morning person, this morning in particular was chaotic, my eldest got up late – he never gets up late, then I couldn’t find shoes, a lunchbox or my keys, subsequently the morning descended into a frantic rush to get out of the door in time. It has taken 3 cups of tea to recover….

It would be nice for my children to decide to stay in bed late over the weekend, this never happens.. !



thanks for reading…

Ginger and Grey …

Friday, September 19th, 2014

I posted a few months ago about a couple of cats that live near me and seem to use my front drive as their meeting place. They are an intriguing pair who both look annoyed, a bit disheveled and in need of a haircut. I have affectionately  named them Ginger and Grey – I tried yesterday to go and say hello – they scarpered pretty quick…


It’s been a while…

It seems ages since I have written a post, unfortunately I have been unwell for a while but now gradually getting back to normal!

Although its still warm its starting to feel like Autumn, whilst I have been unable to do a great deal I found some time to do some simple line studies from things in my garden, these then turned to some simple patterns, nice to be back working, I’ve got loads to catch up with!
