How tidy is your cupboard?

I have lost count of the times I have tried to empty this cupboard. It seems to fill up as fast as I empty it. Even, half empty, it is still a mess. It just seems my brain is incapable of domestic order. At least I have stopped writing bad and unpublished novels...paper always takes up a lot of space.

The wooden marionette was carved in Switzerland in 1949 by my late mother's cousin. I cannot throw any of these things away.

Wedding Photos

I heard a great and true story the other day which I will have to put in a comic strip. This is a quick sketch for the first panel. It could have been written by a script writer but the words are all true. More to come.

It's full of stars.

Heart Operation

Photoshop, Illustrator, Corel Painter. Original artwork by very small daughter a long time ago. It's when I colour them in I can see into her then child's mind. She always did have an incredible imagination.
Henry and his invisible wife are drilling next door so I am listening to Radio Forth on the headphones.

The new Halal butcher has real beef so having a real Sunday roast beef and yorkshire pudding evening. Hooray.

And...the first change of colour in the summer sky. The baby swallows have left. Scotland cancelled because nobody can bear to leave little dog even though he is bouncing around again.
