four thousand...



I had some good news this morning... the lady from Livewires rang and she is keen to give my girls a go and is going to do a run of 4,000 and see how they go!  So I am jolly excited about that, jolly excited!



(new beginnings)


I have had a bit of a block this last week... four failed attempts at doing something creative, but that is ok, these things happen sometimes.  It might be due to some weird sinus activity in my head at the moment, I am not sure?  But anyway today I did this one above and I think she is interesting... I love the colours, reminds me a bit of the beginning of spring, before all the flowers come out.

Yesterday we had a lovely visit to an alpaca farm... one of the dogs had 9 puppies! there were 4 left and they were 7 weeks old  They were so cute, I think they were the highlight of the day for me and the sheep were really scary.  Ben said he liked all the animals.

How exciting Katherine, I don't think it is any surprise that they would fall in love with your girls. I still hope to see a book oneday that tells all their stories.
