Fat birds.
In a pattern.

fly away

To hibernate or fly away. That is the question. Sadly the answer is neither. Too much to do mate.

It was dark when the alarm went off this morning.

september 19

So this was September... surprisingly mucho considering I don't feel like I've had much time for personal work of late...

Tuesday, 1 October 2019


In other little night owl flew the nest and went to live in Newcastle to start uni....I have many amusing tales already which I will share when I get a minute.
And we got new Loaf sofas which I bloody love. The eldest thinks we waited till she left on purpose, but there is absolutely no truth in that rumour....none at all...

NOT halloween

I realise that it's now October... but I drew this in September, I just didn't have a minute to ask my question....What's with all the people banging on about Halloween in bloody September???
I don't get it? Halloween is one day. Right at the end of the month. It's not even that exciting. A bit of trick or treat and some pumpkins? Woo!
Surely people have more interesting things to think about in their lives a full 5 weeks before it arrives?
And do not even get me started about the fecking idiots who are already twitting on about Christmas! GET A LIFE!!!

I feel better for that.
As you were x

work avoidance scheme

When you just can't get into the work you're meant to be doing.... make a moose pattern.

university shopping

We spent most of yesterday spending a zillion quid on kitting out the eldest for university. She now owns better stuff than we have at home and I am most jealous of her moving to a swanky new pad on her own. 
We're taking the first lot up to Newcastle this weekend ... but then she's coming home to slum it with us for a week before she actually flies the nest next week.
Tissues at the ready...

A couple of pics from this week....autumn innit....

Monday, 2 September 2019


I literally have not had a minute for any personal work since July.
Apart from when I was in Mexico obvs. I had loads of time then.
But for the first time ever I just could not be arsed!
I was so very busy with other people's drawings before I went that I just lost the joy.
We've been back almost 3 weeks and I was thrown straight back into the busy-ness as soon as the wheels touched the tarmac at Manchester airport.
I was gonna do some proper work last night but then I gave myself a slap and reminded myself that it was the weekend. So I drew a fox. Cos it's all very autumn round here.
And I actually love September.

Back to the grindstone now...

what holiday?

Did I ever actually go away?
And did I ever sit relaxing in the sun, deciding that I wouldn't work so hard when I got home?
Maybe it was all a dream?

british summer time

Just as we were loving the hottest day ever in the history of Britain and living our best life in the beer garden on a Thursday... along came 48 hours of torrential rain and temperatures better suited to March. 
Bloody British weather.

holiday shopping

I want to be one of those people who spends the week before they go on holiday just pottering round the shops buying new HotWeatherClothes, insect repellant and sunscreen.
I'm not quite sure how I ended up being one of those work-till-the-last-minute-then-stay-up-till-2am-ironing-and-chucking-random-stuff-in-a-case-whilst-screeching-at-anyone-who-dares-to-sit-down sort of people.
But this year is no exception.
I have actually turned down a few jobs this month. But obviously not enough cos I'm having to work my little arse off and stay up till stupid o'clock just to stay affloat. 
That early morning beer at the airport can not come soon enough.
