shopping, of course! OK, I own up, I've been doing rather a lot of it recently!
I had such a lovely surprise this morning reading Ana Banana's comment and following it to Tommy Kane's blog and then seeing Mattias's comment that I just had to draw something! Shoes and bags are a real weakness of mine which I do control but every now and again I have a full blown attack so a few lovely things found their way home with me last week. This bag isn't one of them (so last year, dahlink!) but it's got loads of zippers and shiny bits and I've been meaning to draw it for a while now. The shoes have lots of stitching detail too so this quick sketch will look quite different when it's finished.
Hopefully this week I will have finished all the odd jobs I needed to do - they seem to have mushroomed in numbers instead of dwindling but finally there is light at the end of the tunnel. My drawing desk was taken over with my sewing machine and all manner of junk but now that, and the whole room, has been cleared and is tidy and welcoming again. In fact, a lot of things went back into our bomb shelter thanks to a report that bomb shelters may no longer be compulsory in new Swiss homes - which also means bomb shelter inspections will no longer require us to keep it empty! Believe it or not, we were concerned as we still have some boxes in there and within days of our arrival last year we had the knock on the door from an inspector to see our TV and radio licence!
Although I don't have photos of the car show to post - we're going next weekend instead to avoid the crowds - I think things may well pick up on my blog. The weather has been absolutely beautiful, really sunny and warm (out of the cool breeze!) and I can feel my batteries charging up! Shopping is on the agenda for Friday too, when Mark and I will be looking for new plants for the garden.
And finally, a very Happy Birthday to Mum who is 77 today - although she still claims to be 29!
