Mark Hearld at YSP...


I went to see this lovely exhibition at the YSP before Christmas,
and thanks to John at Scribblz & Doodlz he let me know about this short film on Shelleybean.
The exhibition finishes on the 17th of Feb, so if you get chance go see it!.... and they do great hot chocolates in the cafe!

It's finally starting to get colder and frostier, fab! 
this is how winter is supposed to be, crisp and bright, with dragon breath on the way to school and a nip in the air all we need now is the snow to come!
Lil Sonny and Sky are desperate for snow so they can go out on their new sledges.. fingers crossed!

The lovely thing about being out in the cold is when you come in and the house is all cosy with a log fire and you settle down for a family film with a hot chocolate and a giant bag of Maltesers!
I'd love to have a go at knitting this blanket for the above looks so cosy and fun to do...

have a cosy fun weekend!

slowly does it.....

We've been easing ourselves slowly back into a new year with a visit to one of our fave places, Manchester City Art Gallery to see the amazing The First Cut exhibition before it goes at the end of January, it's so very brilliant! we saw it back in November.

They have some wonderful Lowry paintings on display...

This amazing dress looked like it was made out of fur, but as we took a closer look....

It was made out of needles! amazing! 
( a bit scratchy I think though, don't think it will catch on, not very practical on the school run!)

It felt a little sad yesterday, a bit melancholy , taking down all the Christmas decks.
It's gone so fast I don't feel I've had time to take it all in, 
gone in the wink of an eye, a bite of a ferrero Roche and a sip of Bayleys, gone! ( although I wish I could say the same for my Christmas wobble that I squeezed into my jeans this morning!)

One of my New Years 'revolutions' as sonny calls them is to start every week with a long walk,
So this morning I went for a long walk
and breathed in the new year!
