We had such a lovely family day out with my sweet Nan. She's well into her 90's and as much fun now as when she was younger and she gets on so well with the Moomin :D
A lovely lunch was followed by a walk in the Rock Gardens, a very traditional Victorian style garden. It felt so much smaller than when I was a child and would find hiding places behind the rocks and in the trees.
The waterfall is still so beautiful, even if it is in a busy town and I sat on an ants nest at the top when I was 9!!!
On our way home, we took a detour to pick up two new members of our family.
My lovely son and his kitten Cottonmouth (named after a movie character). She's every bit as classy and lethal as her namesake!
This is Piper who is for Moomin and I to share :D
Already Piper has decided that long hair makes a good nest.
And little Cotton knows where she's happy.
Manchee is madly in love with them both, but can't understand how his size intimidates them.
A long walk in my favourite woods took some of the edge off Manchee's energy and gave me the time to wind down after the day in the City. I do find it hard to be among so many people and buildings now and here is where I escape.
Work continues for the Fair, although this one is causing a few minor issues.
I love working with watercolour, but I don't feel I'm quite as easy with it as I am the acrylics. Do you recognise the subject?
