and here we are again...

Yep - another week has gone by and suddenly February is just around the corner.

I am feeling a bit of a damp squib on the creative front. I am seeing all these fantastic blogs on my blog roll with lots of lovely work achieved and what have I got to show for January - well just that Bletchley Park is finished!!



But hey, lets look on the bright side.  So what have the highlights been for this week?


  • Well - except for my lovely friend Ellen, I have had the house to myself.  No house guests (though they will be back next week, I fear).  I don't exactly run a conventional bed and breakfast establishment - if they want breakfast I point them in the direction of the kettle - but I do provide an evening meal.  These guys take a bit of looking after.  (They are all work colleagues who do not live in MK but come down for 2-3 days per week.  When they are here I do find them a bit inhibiting.)
  • My daughter passed her driving test - first attempt!!
  • I have finished Bletchley Park
  • I bought a new car - bit of a impulse purchase but I feel it had my name on it and I had the help of Rob and Andy 
  • I have been to London Paddington and Dunstable for the day job 

And the lowlights

  • My lovely shiny new car (I should clarify that by new, I mean new for me!) is already getting the standard makeover.  Mud from the country lanes and Whippet X has put his mucky paws all over the back!  And that familiar pattern of Whippet X nose prints is already building up on the rear windows
  • Apart from finishing BP I have not done anything creative - feeling a bit blocked if truth be told
  • Whippet X got locked in the car - a few teething problems with the central locking (I can't use it)
  • Designer son has been having traumas with digital printing
  • I have been to London Paddington and Dunstable for the day job

If, like me, you are a dog lover, don't worry.  Whippet X was finally released, and not at all traumatised by his experience.

Ps.  I wrote this last night.  I got up this morning and thought this is daft.  I shouldn't feel blocked.  So I got out a few bits and pieces and did some work on this page in the sketch book.  Feeling much better.

  3. No sadly, I only found out about it last summer and I think I was too late to think, plan submit anything......a shame really, because I love BP and it would have been a lovely project. I shall enjoy admiring everyone's work though :)

I love to receive your comments - so please say hello. I have just been brave and turned the word verification off. Lets hope those spammy gate crashers don't get in!
