Yes, this is what I do on a Friday night....bid on brushes on ebay....
How very exciting, I know!
Well...hmm...was thinking about where I want to go for this years holiday. I must start saving money as I really need to go somewhere to refill my batteries. I don't think I'll have the cash to go to Paris and London (see the house I grew up in and visit my illustrator friends there) unfortunately. But I may have enough to go to a greek island and visit my friend in Athens (who is studying to be an actress) and stay with her for a while. She sent me an email this afternoon saying: "I am giving everything up and going to run a kiosk in Nepal"...I sent her an email back, asking if I could join her...lol.
Sometimes I imagine my family never left the uk, and how my life would have turned out if they hadn't. I was nearly ten (I think) when we left...I can remember my house and school, splashing about in my yellow wellies in the snow, my mum using window cleaner to draw happy faces on the windows, my brothers bringing girlfriends home when my parents were at work and bribing me not to say a word, eating a lot of hotdogs at the saturday market, hating school lunches and trying to draw as good a pictures as my brother (who then wanted to be architect, but never did be one). I liked the rain a lot....I still do. It would be nice to go back for a visit, I haven't been back for 20 years...I wonder if my house and school are still there?
well...i really should check on those brushes, and go to sleep.
