Arnie loves to watch the toilet being flushed. I’m relieved that someone other than me can actually flush the toilet in our house…


From dinosaurs to big cats, Evie’s other great love is getting dressed for a party. The bigger and swishier the dress, the better! She’s spent most of the afternoon creating mini tornadoes from the vast amount of air current generated from spinning around for so long…


We’ve just got back from two weeks away and that means two weeks worth of washing to catch up on, what fun….

Looking back.

I have well over a thousand drawings on this blog and I thought it would be interesting to revisit some blog posts from previous years over the next couple of weeks.
There are so many and I thought it would be nice for me to pick some of my favourites and maybe ones you haven’t seen before.
I started the blog back in August 2010 when Gruff was only nine months old, Evie was two and Millie seven.
We hadn’t even got Bonnie then and life was very much a day to day battle to find a few hours decent sleep!
The blog was and still is a way of capturing my family’s day to day in drawn form. I use pen and I draw straight into my sketchbook.
My drawing style has evolved since 2010 but alas my washing pile has too!
I hope you enjoy the compilations!

The puppet.

Gruff made a puppet today from cardboard and string. Not your friendliest looking robot puppet…

It cometh…

…the harbinger of lego doom, fear me!

Gold, Frankenstein and something else.

It’s nativity time! A wonderful performance by all the children. Da iawn!

The eyes…

Evie has been making pom-pom creatures tonight. She’s made quite a lot of them and has left them to dry on the table.
I’ve been twitching all night as I just can’t shake the feeling I’m being watched…
boggly eyes

Cat lifting.

Evie can lift a whole cat these days…

The way he tells them.

Gruff has decided to tell us his own made up jokes. It keeps him amused for hours!
