Today I searched and thought and thought and searched, determined to find a way to do screen printing (with photo emulsion) at home. Had been looking at all manner of hardware, tools and machinery. The clocks changed!
Today I signed up for the LoveLiveDrawing online course though it was quite expensive, but I like the people running it and want to support their effort. Also I'm sure it will be really good.
Today a dear friend in Singapore passed away after being diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer 3 years ago.
Today I was extraordinarily tired. We went to the library and Owen played for a long time with Maddie while I spaced out. In the evening we finished Russian Doll on Netflix and loved it!
Today was supposed to be quality time with Owen after school, but he was rude and mean to me, so I just did my own things.
Today I took Harriet to Little Wild Things but she was quite clingy to me, saying 'forest scary. T.rex in forest, roar'. In the afternoon we went to play at Maddie's house.
Today was lovely and warm, we spent most of the day in the garden.
Today the children were very happy and funny though all we did was stay at home. I made more sketchbooks in the evening till very late.
Today I was extremely tired as Harriet had woke up in the night at 2am to breastfeed. So no art or craft this evening, just Netflix.
Today Owen went to Tennis lesson with Eddie while Harriet played with her friend Cleo at the library. Afterwards we went to play at the park and it was actually quite warm and lovely.
Today I was super extra nice to Owen, and he was very nice to me in return.
Today Owen's teacher called to say another child had hit Owen's face with a plank of wood by accident. Poor him, he had quite a nasty bruise (going to be a black eye) and seemed quite shaken.
Today I took Harriet to Witney without a stroller and she was very excited to walk though I did end up having to carry her and hurting my back. I also attended Owen's parents teachers review meeting.
Today we were all poorly and tired and lazy and so didn't go out. Poor Harriet really wanted to go out and was very sad.
Today I took Owen to Evie's birthday party. Poor Harriet couldn't go as she was ill.
Today was my day off to do some urban sketching at the museums in Oxford, but I got stuck with childcare as Harriet was ill and couldn't go to nursery.
Today Harriet got sent home for having a temperature again. I did an amazing parallel parking outside her nursery, though it did take me some 15mins to do it.
Today I did some therapeutic colouring with Owen after school.
Today I took Owen down to Jaffe & Neale again for some mother & son bookshop cafe time. In the evening, someone bought a sketchbook from my Etsy shop! Unfortunately I didn't have this one ready made and had listed it by accident, so had to spend the whole evening making it.
Today I took Harriet to Little Wild Things, and it was pirates theme. It was sunny but still very cold.
