Guinea Pig on his Holibobs

It's been a busy week rustling up pet portrait commissions including this handsome little corgi.

If you're wondering where guinea pig has gone he is now a sunburnt sausage in ‪#‎SoCal
You can vote for him at Bored Panda. I know he'd appreciate it immensely:

The guinea pig series is also available as greetings cards.

Where are you planning to go on your holibobs? I am not going anywhere or rather we are moving out the house because we are having renovations but we are not leaving the country. My daughter is going on an exchange to Germany in the summer which will be fun for her. I will be roasting like guinea pig in the boiling hot summers of Baltimore.

Guinea Pig in the Tulips

Guinea Pig in the Tulips, watercolor

My guinea pig is whizzing around the world. Today I found him in a tulip field in the Netherlands chatting to a caterpillar. I would love to know what they are having a chinwag about.

Where do you think he will end up next???

If you could vote for him over at Bored Panda you would really make my day:

In other news we are having our roof raised to create more room. Well basically they take it off and switch the power off for three weeks so we have to move out. It will be in the summer mercifully so at least I don't have to worry about getting the kids to school! I wonder where we will go? All I know is .....camping is not an option! I am not that type to want to 'get in touch with nature'....I just get in touch with poison ivy and get a nasty rash.

I know someone who has a weekend house we might be able to use. The kids will probably think of it as an adventure. But I have realized that I am practically geriatric when on hearing we had to temporarily move I took a deep sigh knowing I'd have to organize all the clothes and crap being stuffed into suitcases.

I remember there was a time I loved adventure. I remember being on holiday in Vienna and my mother when I was a youngun and we turned up at the airport a day late so we'd missed our plane. My mother was pissed off but I was exciting let's go back to home to London by train! I got a real kick out of it.

Now I know how she feels! Do you like routine and predictability or do you like it when life makes you shake things up now and again?

Basically are you an adventurer or stay at home guinea pig?
