Goodbye 2011.

Well it’s New Year’s Eve and we’re seeing in the next one with good friends.
Let’s hope the next year brings more fun, laughs and sword fights.
Best wishes to you all.

Get Her.

Of course all the presents that Father Christmas has brought are no match for a good old cushion burial.

A Winter’s Swim.

Our winter’s walk on the beach was cut prematurely short today by Evie’s side step into a wave.
Telling the surfer that it’s a bit cold for a swim was a good come back though…


Oh bliss.


Father Christmas brought Evie a new cat for Christmas.
She’s decided to call her Fluffy.
As Fluffy is only a toy and cannot speak for herself, Evie acts as the voice of Fluffy.
Endearing yet slightly disturbing at the same time.
Fluffy is watching me…..

Christmas Day.

Lego mountains and dinosaur kingdoms.
Wooden bikes and a squirrel that squeaked for five minutes before it’s insides were ripped out.
Happy Christmas.

Who ate all the pie?

Happy Christmas everyone, I hope it’s a peaceful and happy one.

Ripping Yarns. (Part Two).

Ripping Yarns. (Part One).

Christmas Cat.

Oh for pity’s sake.
Get out of the TREE!

The Box.

Nowt like a box for a bit of high seas adventure.

Six more sleeps.

Waiting for Santa.

Seven more sleeps.
It’s going to be a long week.

The Cats on my street.

Christmas Cake.

Christmas cake time, out with the brandy….

Tree Rats.

Oi! I can see you in the tree you know.
Hand over the baubles the pair of you….

The Joy Of Puddles.

Balls ‘n Swords

Where does one take a dog obsessed with balls and a boy obsessed with swords?
Dodging the mud and the hail showers today.


…can sometimes be shared.


We finally got our Christmas tree home today with the help of some ratchet straps and half and hour of fiddling while the kids and the dog sat laughing at us in the car.

One Glass of Wine.

Long day, need sleep now.


Well this one crept up on me.


My name is Angie Stevens and today I am 38 years old. This is my blog.
I love to draw and find no better way than to tell you all about my life and my family.
Thank you for dropping by over the past year. It has opened more doors for me than I thought possible.
Here’s to getting older and more drawing to come.

If I knew you were coming…

..I’d baked a cake!
My dudes made my birthday cake today.(for my birthday tomorrow).


I asked Millie if she still played with her dolls.
She told me she did.

Wrap ’em up warm.

Winter’s coming.

House Arrest.

It’s hard entertaining a dog that can’t go out for five days (torn nail, big bandage, much whimpering and lots of antibiotics).
Gruff has come up with some excellent activities to pass the time.
We have dragon slaying,

There’s car chasing,

Hide and seek (normally doesn’t take long),

And there’s staring out the cat, never ends well.


One more day until the bandages come off Bonnie, hang on in there or I’ll have to vacuum wrap your leg.


Oh joy.


Gruff went to a proper Barber’s shop today for a trim.
Maybe it was a male influence but he sat like an angel.
