Bella and the hound illustrations

Starting my own little business has been a dream, an unexpected dream, but a dream all the same. I create personalised prints and illustrations, pet portraits, digital artwork and more. And I love it with all my soul! I started drawing again in may 2020 when I was poorly with long COVID . I drew... Continue Reading →

House Number 2

It really does feel like I haven't written a blog post in ages. I haven't sat down and taken the time to put my thoughts to paper. It’s been a strange year, and a very busy few months!  We moved house !   Army house number three, and our first off camp. It’s actually amazing to finally be out from behind... Continue Reading →

Surviving Quarantine

Well we certainly are living in “strange times”, if I’ve ended a conversation once with “stay safe” I’ve done it a hundred times. suddenly our worlds have become much, much smaller.

Adjusting to a new normal

Staying home, no running, no bread, no gym, WFH (working from home), learning to keep myself busy at home and dealing with the anxiety Covid-19 brings. Well that escalated quickly didn’t it.

Dog training? It’s all fun and games.

We have recently completed a few new training courses with Watercombe dogs and have just started a regular training class with them. It’s turned my training priorities completely upside down! Duke has absolutely loved it! And I have too. The training is all game based. You use games and fun to teach you dog to... Continue Reading →

The old Bucket list.

The “new” Bucket list is getting longer and longer. I have been crossing things off and adding more on. Everything I cross off, every new experience, leads me to find more things to add and more things to try. I started the list in 2017 and it’s brought me a lot of joy. It’s forced...
