Do you ever think about what your parents were like when they were young? Watching my daughter grow up got me thinking about my Mum and Dad. My Dad died many years ago and my Mother died last year. I've never seen photographs of them as children, times were hard when they were kids so photographs would have been a luxury. I wish I could ask them about their childhoods - the games they played, Christmas, Birthdays, schooldays.
Made me think - I should spend as much time with my daughter as possible - talk to her, laugh with her, hug her when she feels sad, tell her about my childhood........

Been unwell for a couple of days, but not as ill looking as the fairy figure which my cats demolished! Four of them are six months old and still chewing everything in sight. A few days ago they decided to attack one of my Brian froud fairy figures - I can only think that the hair reminded them of some small furry animal - they're always dragging my daughter's dolls downstairs by the hair. Have posted a picture to show the remains - bear in mind that she used to have a lovely head of hair!

OK, this is my first post on my first ever Blog - and now my mind is blank!
I'm 'middle aged', work for the NHS but am a frustrated artist - at some times very frustrated but that could be more to do with the cats chewing my brushes.
