I have to resist the urge to moan about how rotten my October has been. Health wise it hasn't been wonderful but I mention it here only so I can look back at this in Octobers to come and hopefully feel, however cold and miserable, at least it was better than that. Just a couple of weeks ago the azalea started flowering again and we thought it was strange until I checked back on the blog and found it had done exactly the same thing last year! How quickly we forget. At least the blog is useful for keeping track of such trivia!
I drew this little guy at the weekend to try and cheer myself up. I felt sorry for him when I spotted him in the Sultan Centre supermarket in Kuwait but as I drew him I realised he has a Christmas hat on! The dreaded C word has suddenly appeared in the shops and on TV recently so I suppose it is timely!
