  1. Angie, you are amazing. I love your doodles so much! xxxxxxxx

  2. I saw your television interview. Thank you for sharing. It must have been a great adventure for the children.

  3. Wow, you really are riding the rollercoaster of fame. Congratulations, you have a truly amazing talent and a great family. πŸ™‚

  4. I watched it this morning, then tried to find the article on the BBC News website to get the blog address, not a thing, so had to use the net…found it by putting in “mother draws pictures of children growing up” and bingo…but now hours later it is everywhere! We are grandparents now and re-living it all…so thank you for sharing your lovely images…they made us laugh. Please get these published then we can all buy the book as a gifts!

  5. Hi,
    I’ve never seen your site before today but saw you on BBC this morning.. Aw I love your stuff! its amazin! really fun and I love the way u draw it ‘as it is’ brilliant way to look at some of the difficult situations that can arise with the stress of looking after little ones -as lush as they are! (also a Welsh girl- can u tell?!)
    Think its great what you are doing keep going! Have you ever thought of doing family (dont know what you d call it)- sort of like photo shoots but sketches to capture what the family are about – I bet it d really take off- I know I’d love to have you do a sketch of our little family (we have a nearly 2 yr old little boy)I just think tyour sketches are beautiful.. does that make sense? Anyway all the best for the future πŸ™‚ Ali G ( not the man himself though..)

  6. From a scribbler dad to a doodler mum – luvvin this stuff – makes me wanna read my kids ‘the green ship’ Quentin Blake – tonight.
    Good work – liking it lots

  7. Yippee. Now the offers will come rolling in! And a lovely new set of pics, too.

  8. Fantastic – I had tears in my eyes when I saw you on the telly. You deserve the recognition, you’ve worked so hard and brought happiness each day to so many people πŸ™‚

  9. Is it on the iplayer?

  10. What a lovely story and so inspiring to those who suffer with depression. I saw you on TV this morning and am now following your Blog! I love your sketches and I hope that you get your pictures published. πŸ™‚

  11. Loved you all on BBc this morning, I’m a grandma, oh so familiar and now daughters the same,
    Nothing changes kids are just the same, fab pictures love em, grandma in Sussex x

  12. I remember asking “What’s England like mum?” about a thousand times on my way to London for a weekend break when i was five. Oh memories… I’ve only just discovered your blog after seeing you on telly. You brightened up my day so much! Gruff is amazing! Nanas rule!

  13. Loved the sketch, washing up piling up, chaos everywhere, know what it was like, with 4 kids, now 8 grandchildren later, the same! Love it know it, you are helping all those mums who think its only them, hooray k x

  14. I’m so glad I put the telly on this morning and saw you and your gorgeous children…….I can relate to your drawings so well and they make me smile and feel warm and happy inside. From Mum of 3 boys and 10 week old puppy, part time art teacher and ceramic jewellery maker, Swansea.

  15. Just saw you on the news! Congrats πŸ˜€

  16. We watched you on the telly this morning and have been looking at your blog today. As a mum of two I can sympathise with a lot of your frustrations and similarly am amazed by my children everyday. Enjoy them, they grow up so quickly and this brings new challenges! They are a gift to be cherished. Please please make enquiries into publishing your fantastic doodles, it would be great to have them available for others to enjoy.

    Found out about you from OMG Ubuntu!’s web site http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2012/06/blink-and-youll-miss-it-ubuntu-unity-shows-up-in-bbc-news-report. What a fantastic way to record your family as they grow and the day to day adventures little tikes get up to. Will be adding this to my bookmarks. Nice to know a fellow sketcher and Ubuntu user in Wales! P.S. if you read the article, ignore Joey’s comment about “Angie’s home-town of Wales”, think he got a bit excited!

  21. How wonderful! I’m so glad to see you get a wider following! Now for the book[S]!

  22. I just saw your BBC television spot. It was great, and good for you getting some recognition for what you’re doing. Keep up the good work…I’m luvin’ it.

    Angie- have found your method of diversion and focus very entertaining.
    You are very talented never mind how observant!!
    How do you manage it with 3 children, dog and cat?? And you still make it to the pool, regardless of costume you wear!!
    You are marvellous!!
    Hope you publish book very soon!!

  25. You have inspired me to get on with my daily sketch book. I have been far too lazy. Yours is such fun and will be an amazing momento when you are my age! Keep going with the mundane even now you are famous.

  26. Saw you on BBC…fantastic kids ..a credit to you. Brought back so many memories of my kids and now looking forward to special moments from our granddaughter.
