Lazy Hazy Days of Summer


I've had a busy two weeks entertaining my young 2 year old guest who had me running around like a headless chicken. My daughters did adore having him though, giving him baths and feeding him and taking him swimming so it was quite fun in the end. But don't toddlers have a lot of energy? I feel like someone should invent a machine to tap some of their energy and generate electricity.

So now I am putting my feet up as the lad and his family has gone back to Britain. Only to hear the news about Brexit ....so devastating. Even though I have been here for sixteen years I still feel very sad about this especially as everyone was predicting Britain would stay in the EU.

Haven't had much time to paint what with trying to watch the lad. Every time I turned around he had dumped something else in the guinea pig's cage....potatoes, pencil shavings, washing up sponges ....I guess he thinks the piggie is a human garbage disposal!! Bless his cotton socks.



I did manage to do a quick painting of an owl though. But right now I just need to drown my sorrows with a Pimms in the garden

Happy Friday everyone!

  3. I had to laugh about this post. Sorry - I know you have had a hard time! But the way you wrote made me laugh... My daughter (17) was babysittig today for/at/with twins at the same age. And she was happy but very tired at the end...
    Your idea of this special machine sounds great :)
    And your owl is beautiful in her purple
    Ciao Beo

  11. Loved the placement and brightness of the colors. It must be difficult for those of you who voted to stay in the EU.

  16. Love the owl and not loving the Brexit decision either. It's still not sinking in and right now it's like a lot of us are ignoring it and hoping it may not happen, who knows?! Thanks for linking to #PoCoLo looks like you had a fab - if not exhausting - time with your house guest!
