The other morning I sat down at my desk in a big funk,  an off start to the day,  my head running in circles, a bunch of things needing doing,  and a jumble of ideas over what to do first.  I pulled out my little...

Missing this water.  I'll stick in the photo of the real thing at the end so you can see I'm not making that colour up. This isn't finished (as is my norm) but I made a few hours on the weekend and I'm hungry to get...

This was the calendar in my kitchen for the last couple of months.  The big countdown! First . Then and . Some and and . That was just a little guy. And even though I thought I'd burst with creativity I did so inside my head.  Which was great!  On the outside I mostly lay in...
