A new day dawns. Back in the real world to get woken up at 5am by a six year old who still loves me even though I abandoned him for 6 days. Megan woke up at 3am to remind me who she was. You’d think I’d left them with a basket of sandwiches and a picnic blanket for 6 days…well they are quite self sufficient, but they do need some one to operate the remote control on the telly. (Gary was actually there looking after them.)(Honest.)
Great journey back from London with Alison and Caroline who thankfully ignored the sat nav at a crucial moment and went off piste and got me home fast! Thank you to the Mad Canadian who picked me up in tesco car park outside Winchester and sped me homewards to large glass of wine.
Head still buzzing with everything that’s gone on. Need to take a moment to compose. So much more material for new work. Back later with more musings.
PS. claim to fame I took Diane’s first selfie…..
PPS Also have the recipe for the best cottage pie ever! Which I am so passing off as my own.
PPS Thank you to the lady with the back pack who knocked all my boxes over because when I piled them back up again they looked even better cos you could see more of my drawing. (Couldn’t thank her in person because strangely she disappeared rather quickly afterwards) It’s all about change!
Off to do a life class. Will be good to draw again instead of talking!
