Awards · So it's Saturday

Chasing My Own Tail

This week I feel like my puppy running in circles chasing my own tail.  I know you will all already have guessed from my weekly round ups I like to keep on top of things but this week I have been rather overwhelmed.  Between adjusting to new school routines, the fact the teenager has moved out, rebuilding, re-arranging and generally trying to get the house back into some sort of order I am also working a few hours overtime towards the new lap top funds, so writing and blogging has suffered reading has gone out the window.  I do hope by next week normal service will be resumed and I can get into a more productive routine but for the remainder of this one my posts may be spordic and the schedule is out the window.

I have a couple of awards to accept (there maybe more I haven’t read the posts for yet if so I apologise I will catch up on all your posts eventually)

The lovely Vikki over at The View Outside gifted me a little sunshine much needed here with these rainy days, I am struggling to think how to praise her enough in a way which I haven’t previously all I can say is if your not following her why not? Get over there and check her out

She is a bit of a rebel so didn’t post any rules as these things normally involve 7 I am also cheating and sharing 7 pics from the sketchbook I found while setting up my desk the other night they are simple drawings but I really like these

  1. congrats Paula. love the sketches, just another talent on your list of many. just think how good you’ll feel when you get back into the swing of your routine, only with the added bonus of your great new work space. remember to take time for you too though…:)


  2. Love the image of a puppy chasing its tail. Congrats on the awards, Paula, and thanks for thinking of me. I think the Booker Award fits me pretty well these days… refusing to live in the real world.


  3. Congrats on the awards. All are well deserved. I hope to read Interview with a Vampire this fall and I’m reading The Moonstone right now by Collins. And I adore Pride and Prejudice. Thanks for the nomination. Oh, I almost forgot to mention that I loved your sketches. Have a marvelous day!


    1. yeah though as you can see from the date that was a few years ago, the front on elephant was a working sketch for a bigger drawing I did for my daughter not sure if she still has it


    1. I know there were more but not found them yet, I was playing with the technique hence the reason that they are all quite similar I will have another go at this when I get time but not sure why the fascination with the bull rushes at the time lol


Let me know your thoughts.......
