fat cat

This is my FaffingAboutInFrontOfTheTelly pic from last night. ↴

I come alive at about 9pm and don't want to go to bed.
But in the current perma-dark situation I am suffering from vitamin D deficiency and excessive melatonin production, resulting in a reduced ability to get my arse out of bed on a morning.
Bloody buggering January 😫

Spring is on it's way.

Just kidding.
It's really not.
In fact it might snow this week.

dotty day out

Had a fab day out in London yesterday with the Dotty Wrens, Lizzie, Wend and Sue.
Wish we all lived near each other, we could get a real life studio together. We'd never do any work but we'd have a right laugh.

This isn't us. It's just drawings from my train journey...

Two days of the dreaded alarm going off in the middle of the sodding night and it already feels like the 83rd of January. 
How long till spring?

I don't think I've mentioned this before...I'm not one to moan...but I bloody hate January.
Shit weather. Dark ALL THE TIME. Bloody miserable. The alarm nearly killed me this morning. Fact.

ski trip

The eldest has gone to the French Alps with her boyfriend and his parents. It is her first skiing holiday. So far she has phoned me in an 'emergency' to say she couldn't open her suitcase, she's discovered that she has taken one ski glove and one man's mountain biking glove, she's rolled halfway down an Alp and had to be rescued by a French man who recovered her ski poles and she's dropped her poles off the ski lift and lost them. 
She's having the time of her life.
I'm not sure how much fun the boyfriend's parents are having 😬

dog tired

Took the dog for a run in the woods today. She's been asleep ever since. I'm feeling a little sleepy myself. It's the Chrimbo Limbo innit.

Twenty four miscellaneous festive items. All recycled from previous days. Sustainable design at it's best.... and I can't think of any more county items for the sodding thing. Obvs.

Twenty Christmas cards.
A dying breed. Loads of people have told me they're not sending cards this year. Maybe they're not? Or maybe they just don't like me 😬
