I have really missed my Stew... I think this is the longest we have ever been apart...

Last night I finished "KING"...

Today I am working on a picture for Griffin's teacher from this year, she taught Brylee as well... I asked her yesterday what her 'favourite' word was... it's "LIFE".... so I will be working on that one today. As well as working on "WISHFUL" AND "FAMILY".

I'm really enjoying the painting... it's keeping my mind off other stuff.

So, no point asking what I'm doing today then.... I do need to pop out to get the letters for LIFE... and some more paint. I wonder if there is a weekend Market up in Auckland that I can go to and try selling some of my pictures at? Hmmmmm?

So, I went out and got my bits and pieces... driving home and OH MY GOD! My van starts making this godawful HIGH PITCHED SCREACHING noise!!!! I stop, I look around, nothing looks different, no big leaks... so I limp home ever so slowly, all the time the van is screaching it's head off.... I think it might be a stone trapped in the hubcap??? So anyway, the mechanic is coming out soon to investigate! WONDERFUL...

JAXX: thanks you so much for that! It worked!!!! I cancelled the mechanic in the nick of time so don't have an $80 Call Out Fee to pay... yipeeeee.

End of Day: been a busy painter... got a wicked backache from bending over all day...but it's all good. Means I will sleep well tonight again.

NSV: I bought a big packet of evil biscuits today, had one and gave the rest to Mike when he came around! Getting them out of my house is good, don't know what posessed me to buy them! NEVER go shopping when you are PMS'ing! nite nite.


  1. They are looking great!! Good to keep busy:-)

  2. There are heaps of markets in Auckland, in just about all areas so you would have no trouble finding one to sell your paintings at.

  3. You seem very content right now-that's really great! What is that sleeping stuff-is it a spray or a tonic? I may have to look into it!

  4. I had that once - reversed the car and it was fine :)

    I love the KING painting. I also think the markets in Auckland sound like a great idea. I had thought of doing it with the cards i make and jewellry but i'm too chicken.

  8. Yay for saving money and not having to get the mechanic guy out! Nice one Jaxx!!

  9. Thanks for your comment - you are a sweetie:-)
