Well ... my flat is beginning to look a little ' busy.' There are threads everywhere and a buzz of creativity. Need to open the windows every morning to let in a lots of fresh air and to dust away the cobwebs ... but this morning it was grey and sleeting down ..... quite a winter this is.

Ohhhh I cant wait to see the daffodils! :)

Donned a red t-shirt to fight the grey day
and am off for a march around town to get some air.

Made some progress last night but in the morning I just look at it and think ... so much to do.

Listen to this album and tell me it doesn't want to make you dance around the house!?

LCD Sound System - Sound of Silver

Favourite Track - Get Innocuous!

2nd Fave - Someone Great.

Woop Woop!

I love working at night when everything is quiet and you get no interruptions.

Although on the other hand...the interruptions are great as they give the space to think.

Bjorn coming for lunch today .

Check out his website - HE KICKS ASS!


Ta ta for now.


  1. Hey Lou!

    Thanks for the soup and tea today! The picture's looking great. Keep on trucking! I'm off to the Brecon Beacons now. Just what the doctor ordered. Gonna be a big bunch of people and we're bringing guitars and a banjo! See you next week yeah? Have a good weekend!

  2. So your painting her eye shadows? They look amazing. What about her nose?? with my piece, which was supposed to be my sister but looked more like a patchwork face, I just couldn't get her nose at all. And your home looks light and something out of a home magazine :)

  3. You may think your work goes slowly, but I marvel how quickly you do it. Do you have more than 24 hours in your day?

  4. I suppose it comes down to practice ... ?

    Plus I am my Mothers daughter and she never stops!


  5. My answer to that could be that I am my daughters' mother and they don't stop!...and my grandsons' grandma and there are more babies on the way.
