In a place far away from anyone and anywhere, I drifted off for a moment.
Haruki Murakami

I’m back, I’m recharged and rested, my pencils are all sharpened and tools all neatly lined up ready for action. And just in the nick of time because there’s a mighty lot of action happening around here. You could say I’ve hit the deck running and any memories of lingering on the beach with a book are deeply buried. Oh, but what a book to linger with, turns out Haruki Murakami is a bit of a Japanese literary legend and I just couldn’t put Norwegian Wood down. Set in hip, free-loving, boozing and 60’s pop Tokyo it had my name all over it. Fabulous!

Now it’s back to work.

I have the most divine drawings for Mothers Day fundraisers filling the workroom, they are so gorgeous I may have pulled my ‘Dawwww’ muscle!
And in between all that oohing and aahing I’m preparing for this weekend’s Easter roadtrip to Daylesford for the Daylesford Makers Market. I love this market, I love the little town, I love the road trip, I love the people.
