Bonnie and Millie the lurcher.

Bonnie’s new best camping friend!


Swing out sister.


Campfire tea, reading and drawing.

Head torches are genius.


Campfire fun.


Flotsam and Jetsam on New Quay beach.

Things that have washed up on the beach today; an onion, a turnip, a dead crabs leg, (well it certainly wouldn’t be alive as its owner was nowhere to be seen) and my son.


Messing about on the river.


Rock pools rock!


Waiting for red kites at Bwlch Nant yr Arian.




Big waves in Llangrannog.


Crabbing in Aberaeron.

We’re going camping!

Car is full to bursting, let’s hope the weather’s kind to us. Now did I pack that wine…


Lean on me.

The great chicken robbery.

Well actually not that great at all and my story mentions the words poo and bum but hey, welcome to my world.

Doodlemum is three!

Wow, that went fast, where did the time go then, perhaps it’s under my mug of tea or the enormous (and growing) pile of sketchbooks I seem to be accumulating.
Thank you for sharing my drawing journey with me, it really means loads.
Here’s to the next year of drawing!

This isn’t going to end well is it?

Yes, Gruff has named his muscles! A future super hero perhaps to join forces with Wonder dog Bonnie and Mega Cat Arnie?

Beast of burden.

Not you Arnie, my washing basket.
I’ve closed the bathroom door so it can’t get out and I can’t see it either.

Look down at the gaps…

…in the planks when you’re walking on a pier, you can see down to the sea.

Good, isn’t it Millie?



My guys met their cousins (from New Zealand), for the first time today.


Long car journeys…

…should never be attempted without a bottle of bleach and a bucket!


Dishwasher Kerplunk.

Drat, foiled again. Will have to resort to dishwasher tetris

Please read me a big story…

Ok then. But is reading it from a very big book cheating?

Best cat in the world.

What cat refuses to get off Evie’s bed even when she’s thrown up everywhere?
Arnie does.

I don’t want to go to bed.

Oh what a stroppy bedtime tonight!
I know you don’t want to go to bed, but I do!

Some days you can tell they’re related just by their hair.

We discovered lots of jellyfish washed up on Three Cliff’s Beach today.
Bonnie thought they were things to be played with and the girls thought they were great.
Gruff is still coming round to the idea of holding one.


How can you persuade a dripping, golden yeti off your picnic blanket?
You can’t, he is in love with your dog and no amount of sandy food will come between them.
Towel anyone?
