Hello Again

01-07-2014 hello again

It has been quite a while since I last posted. A lot of things have changed in my life such as the people who are a part of it and the job I do – I have been working in the Library for a few months now and I have a beautiful niece as an addition to my family.

Thought I would take the ICAD challenge as a way to start posting again but never got round to it last month so I will try and start now. I haven’t attempted to draw or paint anything since last time so thought I’d try some simple lines to try and get me back into it. I used some newspaper clippings for the “hello again” collage & I used colouring pens to make the number “1″ for the first day.

Will try and do the ICADs daily, but may not always post daily… either way, I hope to be back on here a bit more than I have been :-)

Can you point me to the sea? This seal was thrown over a 10m (30ft) sea wall by a violent storm in Cornwall.

You’ll have to seal it to believe it…
A bewildred seal looks forlornly at the camera after being dumped on a promenade by the power of one of the winter sotmrs that have battered Britain. The mammal was thrown 10m (30ft) over a sea wall in Penzance, Cornwall, and was found yesterday morning by photographer Adam Gibbard.

Water, water everywhere: Walkers look over the flooded fields on farmland surrounding Burrowbridge, Somerset.

Janurary was the wettest for more than 100 years in parts of England – but forecasters are warning there is more heavy rain to come.. South-east and central parts of southern England saw more than twice the average rainfall as 17.52cm (6.9in) fell this month. It marked the wettest start to the year since records began in 1910, the Met Office said.
Forecasts for further heavy rain caused the Environmental Agency to issue more than 150 flood alerts nationwide and 30 flood warnings. Gales and large waves cpuld swamp coastal flood defences and sea walls at the weekend, particularly in the west of England, as winds are set to reach up to 60mph and combine with spring tides to create huge waves.
Among the areas at risk of flooding is the already swamped Somerset Levels, where the Army has been deployed to bring relief to cut-off villages which have faced the worst flooding in 20 years. The military were sent after prime minister David Cameron vowed swift action amid the crisis.
