Art







I love painting and drawing with the kids. Even though sometimes the effort and mess daunts me a little. Once we get cracking its such good fun.  (Its annoying the number of times I have let that inertia stop me from doing things that I know, once I start I will love. Here's to efforts to get over that ol' chestnut.)

So this morning, while the luthier took his wise ass off to Symmons Plains to ride his saucy Italian mistress around the track, me and the kids manifested our inner artiste, and here is our exhibition or  exervishun (as Sophie calls it).




Below is my study of a thick-lashed plonker and the subject.





And now, like Mary Poppins, I get Saturday afternoons off, so I am heading out the door, yes out the door sans enfants, off like Mum's undies on Father's Day, to seek out adult company and look at plants and probably eat cake.

'off like Mum's undies...' - I've never heard that one before! Love the art. And I think you're really onto something with the Mary Poppins Saturday afternoons. Spit spot!

You so earned your Poppins arvo off. Am sitting here wistfully pondering which flavour cake I would eat.
