Since the last entry, We've moved house(yay!) , and my daughter got a permanent place at the fantastic school she's attending(even bigger yay!). I've spent hours of 'unpaid leave' unpacking boxes, decorating, battling with Talk Talk to get my phone-line and Broadband reconnected, taking stock on my artistic career, and last week, I was a resident artist at my daughter's school(more on that later).
Firstly, I need to mention the Darwen event from the last entry. It was a very interesting day. Not good for sales, it was only a small event, but it was great for meeting people and connecting with kindred spirits, which I always enjoy doing, particularly if it means I learn a bit more about my path through life, and where it might take me. So, Jennie Linden and Anneke Wills, thank you for your friendship and kind words. I'll treasure them always!
Above are some sketch cards I drew specially for the event. I sold one of them - Anna Hope as Novice Hame. Anna was one of the guests, and she gave a very good interview on stage. She also brought one of her cat masks with her for us to see close up.
Paul Cornell put in a brief appearance in the morning, then dashed off home (he had a long drive) so he could watch the Doctor Who episode. I was going to watch it with the guests and fans, at a special screening at a pub that evening, but my car had been in an argument with a Co-op lorry during the day, so I thought I'd best get home and ring a couple of Insurance Companies to get it fixed as soon as possible. As a result, I was able to see the episode at home - very enjoyable silliness!
Our car was soon fixed up again, with a new door and a new wing. In the meantime we had a lovely new Renault Cleo to drive, complete with CD player! Oh we were so spoilt, tee hee! So it all worked out fine in the end.
