The Owl and the Pussycat, and a bit of DIY







Busy day here! Guess what? I finally put those blinds up! You know, the ones which have been under the bed for two years! Woohoo, I can't believe I actually did it! The kitchen looks really fab now, ( I better take some pics tomorrow, as you don't know what on earth I'm talking about!) I also cut loads of logs, had a sort of tidy of the garage, then lit a lovely fire and had dinner - fabulous!



When I was away, I had this idea to illustrate some Nursery Rhymes, so first up is 'The Owl and the Pussycat', by Edward Lear. I haven't finished it, as I have run out of black pencils - but we're going to get some tomorrow, so I'll finish it then. I also need to find out what a turkey looks like, as a turkey marries the Owl and the Pussycat in Bongland!
