There are people on here that are much more eloquent than I and have said many things that are spot on about what happened in Manchester last night and I don't have much more to add. I'm just so sad that these things ever happen. That kids were targeted. Kids! It's bloody heartbreaking. What kind of world are we bringing up our children in? It's easy to dispair (I know I have) but we have to remember that these people are in the minority and there are more good people in the world than bad…

Tonight's #IWD2017 bedtime reading. Women In Science by Rachel Ignotofsky is bloody brilliant. Inspiring to all ages and it looks gorgeous too. Betsy really loves this book too.

For years I have long admired #The100DayProject. I never thought about doing the project myself because I'm not an artist and these kind of projects are for proper creatives (whatever that means) but recently I've been thinking about my One Little Word for the year (flourish) and how I've found this year just generally tough so far. I've also been feeling that pull to create more and doing this project feels like something that would be very good for me indeed especially as I was reminded of…

Practice practice practice. Have been wanting to give brush lettering a good go for a while now so decided to go through @amytangerine's brush lettering class for February's One Little Word practice. I am loving it a little bit of quiet creative concentration every day.

The whole family have been suffering a tummy bug! Thankfully no-one has been ill since last night but we're all still a bit wobbly. PJ day reading all the books and watching too much Cbeebies today. Betsy is devastated she's not going into school today she's super upset she won't be getting a 100% attendance certificate from the head teacher at the end of term poor lamb. Arthur is fine having had the bug earlier this week and is running around while the rest of us just want to nap…

Black and white bunting from last weekend at Field Day. I have to admit l haven't painted anything else since this gosh it's easy to get out of habit isn't it? Especially when everything that's been happening on the world has been happening. I am very much a pessimist at heart and I've not been feeling very good about the current state of affairs at all to the point where it is clouding everything I do which isn't very good is it? Still I am just about to go out and vote because even when…

Arthur asked me to draw a snake so I drew a snake. Although it looks more like a worm the more often I stare at it.

So a funny thing happened last night I managed to kill my blog. I cried for a bit and got annoyed but thanks to some advice from @liveotherwise and a bit of Googling managed to sort it. Took up my whole evening though and when I finally got round to producing something for #the100dayproject it was way past midnight so this is something that was super quick to do. My handwriting hasn't suddenly improved by the way I copied this from a font but it has been a good lesson in using pressure on…
