sometimes...


Sometimes when I am dreaming my mind can wonder off in completely different directions, new ideas start to form and emerge into their own ideas and dreams...  I like this kind of brain activity.

What a busy weekend, I can't believe it is Sunday night already... On Saturday we had a wedding to go to, some underwear to buy, we went to see Fantastic Mr Fox at the movies (I haven't read the book but I really enjoyed the movie, it was quite quirky), visited some friends and had a good curry for tea.
Today (Sunday) has been my dads 85th birthday... we had a wee party for him and Ben decorated his cake (Ben's design skills are interesting and unique).  And now we are all relaxing... both Hannah and Ben are back at school and day care tomorrow so a quite evening is a good idea.

(Dad and Ben... the cake ribbon was too big for the cake so Dad decided to decorate himself with it)

I have a few more commissions to do and several new pieces for some galleries and then I have an idea for a series of works about a few things on my mind.
