Life and all that...

So after not drawing for many months, I had the urge to pick up my pen the other day. Not with the aim of making a good picture or creating art, but just to look and see and be quiet and be in the present moment and draw. So here it is, my page of just drawing...and yes, that is Jakey in the bottom corner there. He settled himself in front of me and purred away happily.

The sun has also finally graced us with its presence, it's actually really warm now, it actually feels like the season has changed and I can wear my summer dresses! Hurrah!! Indeed, here is a photo of me enjoying one of those dresses, with a view of the bump from above. Not even the hoardes of tactless acquaintances and perfect strangers remarking on my enormousness (and I only have about 3 more months of this to go!!!) can put me off enjoying the sunshine and my summer dresses!

Only thing about the warm weather is that I feel less like knitting. But perhaps I will start a little hat knitted with cotton yarn soon.

And finally, after the reprieve we got from our landlady, we decided to move sooner rather than later after all. We got talking to some people with kids and they all said it would be easier to move before the baby comes than moving with a newborn. So we went out and found ourselves a gorgeous flat to rent in my old neighbourhood. Not only is it cosier, homelier and lovelier in many ways, and on a quieter street, it's also cheaper. Sometimes, it's easy to believe that life is on your side.

Wishing you many happy sunny days...

You are definitely glowy and beautifully pregnant the last time I saw you.

I am so glad, you have found a new and nicer nest for your family!
