Reading Books

I am a reader. Not because I don't have a life. But beause I choose to have many.

Since March I have been working in a Library – as a result I started reading books again.

I have just added a Reading List page to keep track of what I have read / want to read.

I will be keeping my reading list page updated as I go along.

(You can also follow me on twitter / instagram where I have started to post book covers when I start something new.) Continue reading

summer 2014

so a couple of days after the “hello again” post i ended up leaving for a bit as i went up to glasgow for a month to work at the commonwealth games. was working 12 hours a day for 7 days in a row for 3 weeks out of 4 (thats 84 hour weeks, not including communting time!) so didn’t really have time to do all the things i had originally planned in my head. went to a whole bunch of museums / touristy places though in my days off so when i get round to sorting those photos will share those with you rather than icads. hope you all had a lovely summer too!

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 :-)

Metro News – Seal in Cornwall

Seal in Cornwall

Seal in Cornwall (1)

Seal in Cornwall (2)

Seal in Cornwall (3)

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.
