T'was the night before Christmas...

...when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

The house hippo was on the prowl though, and it looks like he fancied a bath in the dog's water bowl this time.

Coffee and a mince pie

A little bit of me-time. My local garden centre sent me a voucher for a cup of coffee and a mince pie. So I popped in and enjoyed my free snack while sketching.

Sadly I was having a ditzy morning, as I'd remembered to pack my sketchbook and watercolours... but sadly not my pencil case (which has my pen, waterpen and good pencils in). All I had in my handbag were a couple of biros and a very blunt HB pencil. I like this sketch, but really wish I'd had a proper pen with me! I'd have loved to add some colour to it too, as the restaurant in the garden centre was quite colourful. Never mind, there's always next time!
