Thank you so for your kind words here and on Instagram. It feels nice to be interacting with people again. Although I definitely need to find a way to bring you all back here, but early days anna, try not to be sad that people aren't flocking back to a blog that effectively died 3 years ago!

But really thank you. Please know that I know I'm not an artist. Oh my, art lessons at school were certainly not my forte. Art homework was my nemesis. My old art teacher used to mark our work with a sadistic level of passive aggression. Satisfactory (just) was his favourite remark on my attempts.

So no, I'm not an artist, I am an proud (well not quite, I'm not great with the confidence although you have bolstered me!) attemptist. Yes, an attemptist is what I be. If that means I can create something that will make someone smile and then in turn support a special charity which makes me smile, hells yeah, I'm going to attempt that!

And so to Etsy, methinks, do any of you have any experience with them, could you offer me any advice?

Anyhoo, back to yesterday. I was hoping to resolve a few issues yesterday but alas no. Although "things" may have started to move in the right direction. However as I think more about my situation I am beginning to worry that getting what I want is not necessarily what I need. Alas getting what I want would be the only way to test if it is what I need. Gah. Life, eh?! Sorry to be dreadfully cryptic, the fear of jinxing the exciting possibilities seems rather powerful. So I shall wait a little longer for things to develop.

Yet, yesterday was not all sads, Bean and I went to the Sherlock Holmes themed immersive experience, The Game's Afoot, at Madame Tussauds. A combination of Punchdrunk lite and an escape room. 5 suspects for three murders and you are tasked with whodunnit! Actually a lot of fun, albeit a bit too busy and thus you couldn't really talk to some of the suspects but fear not both Bean and I separately came to the same correct conclusion! It's a little pricey but the set is beautiful and the actors are very good (a little hammy - but what more would you expect!) A lovely little night out. I must get back into trying escape room. They make me smile.

They make me smile like my little penguins. Perhaps I shall sit in the garden and try and create a few more? Hello Indian Summer! I might have a few more to show you tomorrow!

But first I'm off to give these two monsters a cuddle. These little foster kittens have lived with us since they were 3 days old and hopefully in the next couple of week we will be able to adopt them! They are fluffy and cute and silly. Purrfectly impurrfect.
