Hello dear reader, I hope you've had a lovely festive time since I last saw you. It's been a while since I've been here hasn't it and maybe the longest ever blog break I've ever had!
It's been a very eventful christmas/birthday/new year time for me.
We had singing and playing,
baubles and glitter
and family meals of every description,
We had days at the sea-side with the youngest of the clan
and present opening with the older ones too.
I'd rather like shiny glitter around me all the time wouldn't you? I do have fairy lights that I keep up all year round, oh yes and of course my collection of fairies that were probably designed for christmas tree decorations but they've never reached the tree because they hang permanently from a kitchen shelf. I think it might perhaps be a step too eccentric to have a christmas tree up all year as well? (Yes, it is, isn't it.)
Don't worry, you'll be relieved to know that mine's now gone to the recycling centre. :)
A wintery walk in Clevedon a couple of days ago.
The sun was almost setting and the pier looked so pretty in the thin wintery light.
There are going to be some changes and some new projects for me this year. Firstly I'm going to go back to life drawing sessions, something I haven't done for nearly two years so I'm a bit nervous about how my drawing from observation will be after all that time! I shall (possibly?) show you the results here next week.
I'm also going to be involved in a group art exhibition in Bristol which I'll tell you more about very soon.
So for now, I wish you a very
Happy new year. xx
