UK Overnight – Sunshine and showers, with frost for many overnight.
Showers will ease through the evening, leaving most places dry overnight. It’ll be a cold night, with frost for many, especially further north. Mist and fog is likely for some later in the night, this dense in some places.

That sounds like the weather forecast for the next four years…

Kids celebrating World Watercolor Month…

As some of you may already know, this month is World Watercolor Month. This year the event has teamed up with The Dreaming Zebra Foundation to raise awareness and funds to get art supplies for underprivileged kids.

The Dreaming Zebra Foundation is unique in that they provide an art recycling program that is free to the public. Reusable art & music supplies that would otherwise be discarded, along with new or unsold materials are donated by individuals and businesses and matched to recipients who have requested those materials for art education purposes in communities around the world – so you can give then your unwanted art supplies of buy some for them here.

I believe that nurturing Art and creativity in children is so important! Amongst many other things, it’s such a great to learn problem solving, basic DIY skills and resourcefulness.

I am always more than happy to share my sketchbooks and watercolour tools with my son and his friends when we are out and about.

Here is their celebration of watercolour during this World Water Color Month…

The girl who loved stripes, words and seahorses…

Once upon a time there was a little girl. She had pink hair, green eyes and loved stripes.

She wanted to become a writer so she could write stories about clouds turning into dragons, teapots filled with green smoke and horses living in a magic forest ruled by a panther, ridden with trolls and elves.
