So, I haven\’t been blogging much lately…

mainly because things in my life have been fairly quiet.

I don\’t tend to write much poetry when things are pretty normal. I know its strange but I only seem to write poetry if I am in love or in pain or have become introspective.

I also haven\’t been doing a lot of drawing or doodling. I must slap myself on the wrist because I really need to be doing more creative things.

Anyway, I thought I would post a photo of an old drawing and painting I did back in 1985… wow that seems such a long time ago but then again only like yesterday.

At that time I was going out with a fiddle player and he was very good, so I decided I would do a painting for him as a present. I often did that for my boyfriends.

So firstly I did a drawing in pencil, then I worked on the painting which is done in oils, which I really used to love, because they don\’t dry overnight so you can come back the next day and rework them.

I haven\’t done an oil painting for such a long time and I would love to do one but the materials are very expensive and just at the moment with all my lawyers bill I really can\’t afford it.

Needless to say I split up with the fiddle player before I finished the painting so, I still have it. Which is good I think because I do like it in a funny kind of way.

The painting looks a lot nicer in real life because the colours are very rich, this is because the painting started off completely yellow and I built up transparent layers to make the colour of the wood.

Anyway that is my story of the day.

And I accidentally picked up your husband\’s luggage, and when I opened the luggage a cat jumped out,\” Levy recalled the man telling her on the phone.(Reporting by Michael Christie; Editing by Doina Chiacu)

My Crazy Fluffybutt…

Just after xmas my friend Pam took me out to my mother\’s old house so I could collect some things from there I had left behind.

I brought back the things in a polystyrene box.

I put the box down just inside my front door on my big theatrical trunk and left it there for a few days.

Well, Fluffybutt decided she was going to be a sculptor and started biting off big hunks and spitting them all around.

Every time I tried to clean up the bits, she would bite me, so I left everything there for a couple of weeks.

Finally she had wittled it down to only the base of the box!

So here she is when she first started and then a bit down the track.

I have videos of her actually in the act so I will put together a little movie and post it in the near future.

She will also do the same thing with paper, straw hats, sticks and cardboard

We used to joke about hiring her out to the government so she could shred confidential documents for a living. hahaha

Oh and don\’t worry about her. I don\’t think she swallowed much of it, she is fine and I finally threw it away when she wasn\’t looking!
