Half-term

It’s when my life suddenly becomes a blur.

Days are indistinct enough with the constant round of meals, naps and nappies of an under two, add a turning twelve plus friends, a house guest plus girl-friend and a husband home with a bad back and I lose my last slight grip on external life. You know, the one with careers, the slightest idea of this year’s trends or even if there has been an earthquake/flood/hurricane somewhere other than in Brighton…(if there was one in Brighton I slept through it).

So it’s Friday and I feel strangely suspended. Disconcerting.

I’m beginning to fear that the picture I sent to America is lost…the thought makes me sad so I’m trying to visualise the tube arriving safe and sound with it’s happy new owners.

Hopefully now that I’ve written it down my fear will be proved wrong.

My feeling suspended is like feeling lost to myself.

I do have time to myself but somehow I’m off wandering aimlessly unable to catch my own attention. So much to do, and so much I think I want to do, yet all I feel like doing is sleeping.

Hmmm, I might go to bed in fact…and the picture will arrive tomorrow and all will feel right again.

Z leaves for Poland

Finally I had to decide that this picture was finished, mostly as I couldn’t leave it alone and was scared of ruining it.

It’s new home will be in Poland! So with one piece in America (hopefully it’ll arrive) and one in Poland I’m an amateur international artist!

That is quite a funny idea.

Yesterday we had Two French guests, one Belgian guest, Three Polish and ourselves, So international is the norm.

And this was French, English, Belgian breakfast on the lawn!

Sometimes, not smoking is really hard.

Thursday!!!

Finished?

Yay! nearly the weekend!

More guests arriving tomorrow, hadn’t occurred to me to wonder whether Stefanie speaks much English before this moment…but thinking about it I expect she does very well…I think it’s fairly usual to speak several languages in Belgium.

Tomorrow the kids break from school for a week as well, I just hope there isn’t some big project handed out to do in the break…it’s usually a wonderful learning experience for me, but I could do without the homework fight!

I’m really feeling the benefit of spending more time with my female gorgeous goddess friends…I am filled with so much love and a sense of peace just thinking about being able to spend time with them…I remember writing little prayers for this in the hopewitch blog a couple of years ago.

Whenever I consider what I have in my life it occurs to me that I have what I asked for previously with my heart.

Halcyon Pink has been inspired to flow with the idea of being an Inner-Activist and it’s truly how I believe we can change any state of reality. I look forward to his musings and am grateful he is as inspired, sharing, watchable and sexy as he is…(and of course, Huggable)

Ok, big kisses for now

Wednesday!!!

So how cool is this…Posting two days in a row, and I had work time two days in a row as well!
New picture of z in two days…feels quite quick, still about ten hours so far, and still learning how to acheive depth and shadow more effieciently…can only keep practicing I guess.

Finally got to art class on time, only to find out it was cancelled!

Med arrived last night to stay for a week, so hopefully it’ll add to the holiday sensation…and I’m out to dinner tonight with the girls.

Quite the socialite at the moment, what with London trips, Jazz nights and dining out…all with other women which is deeply wonderful. I feel so good when I get to spend time with the gorgeous women I’m lucky to have as friends and sisters.

Hmmm, I really like this picture, not 100% sure it’s finished, and I feel unsure about the level of difference I see between my drawings and the original pictures…kind of ‘If they’re so different are they getting better/ good enough/ do they convey the person?’

The best I’ve seen likeness wise was z’s second pic, hmmm.
