Why no Blog posts ? Its been a Rollercoaster folks ! Lots happening on many levels. All too fast or things that are not for bloggage. Here is a rundown of some random things. In the Melee there was some work, some play some drama, some R&R.
Wild raspberries which i gathered then spilled. Some made it into sourdough oat muffins.
Bruno & I like to go Kayaking for some leisure down time.
I co organised a big summer event on 27th July for Kirkton Woodlands & Heritage Group. Part of it was a treehouse concert with guitarist Hamish Roberts. Video here, he is fantastic, this is well worth a listen.
BBC mention of event HERE. |
and then i had to work really hard to catch up with things and do a 5 page colouring comic job on a highly pertinent subject matter, this took a ridiculous amount of time to focus on & i was late getting it in which is NOT like me. Too many distractions and demands upon me all piling up at once!
Its a funny one how i quite often get people telling me i spend too much time on the computer or too much time working… would they say that to someone who was a salaried employee in an office ? tsk you spend too much time at your job. Freelance is a job too… just with hardly any pay, no pension, sick leave or time off. It still needs doing though! when other folks use the computer for play, i’m trying to work. < rant over / >
To celebrate finishing that colouring job, it did take an evening off however, and treated myself to some pain, working on my longstanding home made tattoo. I use a hollow needle on a stick and a paint brush full of ink, it is taking years to join the wee dots. Skin makes a good canvas to doodle on.
Meanwhile next week i’m going to learn to be a ‘Woodsman’… and am working on some more artwork. Less chaotic service will be resumed shortly!
