Not a lot of sketching has been done. I am doing more around the house and then falling in a heap. Cleaned out a pantry cupboard yesterday that I found had an ants nest in it, I managed to throw out a lot of stuff and got it all back in today.So annoying that it all leaves me feeling exhausted. A lovely sunny day at last.

As you can see I have been playing again when I get bored. I am only using a tiny little book and mostly pen IL which doesn't always photograph well although my little Samsung notebook does a good job. Some of these I may colour later. Playing with shapes. I am finding the new exercise my physio gave me to do rather more taxing than the others so once more back to good days and bad days and changing the pain medication once again but on the whole I feel progress is being made. A lovely day today, the sun is shining and the noise of the blower on the roof as John cleans the gutters isn't exactly music to my ears but probably means he thinks it will rain soon. We have had a huge amount of leaves falling this year. I do hope the fishing crew over at Coffin Bay are having a good time and that lots of fish are being caught.Sad we are missing it again this year.

I really am having fun with these silly sketches. I really bless Carla Sonhiem's books as I can sit and play with drawing ever isles. I have done some of her on line classes too and they are really worth doing. I have new exercises to do which are proving to be harder and make me a he more so back to the wretched stronger pain killers. I also probably did too much yesterday, shopping with John and taught him how to go through the self serve checkout and then cooked dinner last night (left over chicken in a savory white sauce). I had thought a walk today but a terrible day (high winds, rain and cold) plus my body meant I have spent a pleasant day by the fire reading. I do hope the weather is better tomorrow and I can get a walk on a beach, been hanging out for that for ages.

Keeping me sane. We went out for lunch with friends yesterday which was lovely but I did get terribly tired and came home and slept for most of the afternoon.I was anxious to hear how we had done at the foal show, and we did very well with the Welsh section C filly going the best Welsh but as has happened lately there were some bad decisions in the way the whole show was run. I feel so sad but it's up to that committee. It has been very warm and gale force winds today, not many autumn leaves left. John has been cutting back more stuff in the garden, I think he thinks he is safe as I can't do much except complain! Any way I am still having fun sketching, oh and isn't the new baby princess sweet.
