    Recently Time Has Felt Endless

    Recently time has felt endless. Sat illustrating at my desk, time passes effortlessly, gliding by as I draw. And yet somehow every time I stop to pause, time draws its own story. It seems without end and yet unabashed by how little of it there seems to be. Working alone is lonely. Until we moved away from our city, I never thought that I was lonely in the day. Surrounded by the people and places you love, it’s not hard reach out when you need to. When I left work, I was surrounded by friends who were only a message away. Surrounded by love. Yet now I feel alone. Stretched…

    A Story of a Belly Full of Worry

    Are we all sitting comfortably? Then I shall begin. This is the story of a belly full of worry. Night falls over a rainy Wales and a girl sits at her desk, making orders for her online shop and thinking about the future. Now, the funny thing about the future is that no matter how happy you felt spending a sunny day with your loved ones, when that gloom starts to sink, that bright and wonderul future you saw just moments ago dissappears like a weight into water. The colossal landslide of thoughts is unbearable. Who is she to think she’ll be able to make a living illustrating and selling…

    Dog Friendly Pumpkin Picking

    Annoyingly, pumpkin fields are surrounded by, well fields. Without a car it’s damn hard work to get to one. Even if you manage to find one nearby, you’d would have had to have struggled on public transport there (and back with your haul!). Before we got the car, I’d written off visiting a pick your own pumpkin patch as something we couldn’t do. Last year, it wasn’t until the end of pumpkin season that I realised that a road trip was in order. I spent the year eagerly awaiting my favourite season before roping in my partner and some friends and off on a road trip we went! We visited Cattows…

    Whippet Whirl Sheffield – October 2019

    For a weekend forecast for moody skies and raincoats, the October 2019 Whippet Whirl Sheffield saw a sea of happy noses zooming around in the sun. Speedy paws made short work of the muddy grass, flying around the huddle of humans without a care in the world. As all previous whirl goers know, it’s always important to carry lots of treats and to make sure that you know where to give the best scratches to ensure you receive a maximum amount of pointy nosed cuddles throughout the afternoon. Treats or no treats, there’s always hounds that’ll pose for the camera in the sun. Though we do look to be missing…
