I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Gizmo

Gizmo with Ziggy

This is the name of our new kitten who joined us a month ago now. Can you tell why we called him that?! He’s the runt of a litter of persians and was half the size of his brothers and sisters, but eating well and was happy and very cute! During my writers’ group meeting just before we collected him, we were given the theme ‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder’ and this is the poem I wrote.

I’ve been trawling all adverts looking for a kitten
And when I saw this photo I was totally smitten.
My daughter said, ‘We don’t want that!
He’ll be one flipping great ugly cat.’
I said, ‘I know, but look at that face.’
‘Exactly,’ she said, ‘it’s all out of place;
his eyes are so bulgy, like his tummy’s been squeezed.
The sticking out fur will at least hide the fleas.
His nose is so squashed like he’s been bashed with a bat,
and you can tell already he’s going to be fat.
I’ve never seen a kitten that would scare mice away.’
‘Well all the more reason to get him,’ I say.
‘But he’s got the look of a grumpy old man
who’s hit himself in the head with a frying pan.’
‘I know,’ I say, ‘I agree, but still –
if we don’t love him, no-one else will!’

After some research, I put the Zig Kuretake Clean Color real brush watercolour brush pens on my wishlist and was lucky enough to receive a pack from my cousin for my birthday. Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted brush pens like this! I think it must have been an episode of Blue Peter when they showed an artist who decorated narrow boats with beautifully crafted swirls that inspired me to recreate the style as best I could. When I grow up I want to paint narrow boats!….

Visiting Godrevy Beach, Cornwall – the story and the photographs
September 30, 2019
Continuing the braless theme of my recent fashion post; I didn’t even have time to put one on on the Saturday morning we visited Godrevy beach. As we approached the National Trust hut at the carpark entrance, I covered my chest with one arm, and hung the other out the window to flash my membership card at the volunteer. The bed at the back of the camper van was still out and it must have been obvious I hadn’t been awake long…
