Today I took Owen to Witney without Harriet and he was super good. I got him sandals and hat, and when we went home I even drove to the petrol station by myself for the first time and pumped some gas! I felt like a grown up. And I didn't make the petrol station go up in flames like I'd imagined.

Today we went to Maddie's house for a dinner party (with kids). It was nice to be sociable, though the kids were a little distracting.

Today I sketched with Owen's crayons, and was excited to be noticed by the Rise & Draw featured artists.

Today of course I sketched, and persisted in Sktchy Rise & Draw.  Can't remember doing anything else.

Today I fiddled with my sketch until 2am! Foolish old me, behaving like a teenager with no impulse control.

Today I managed to get some sketching done for Sktchy's Rise & Draw challenge while Harriet was napping.

Today it was still sunny, and maybe getting too hot. We went to Charlbury deli for lunch and was turned away as they had no food! We then went and bought food from the Coop to eat at the community centre instead. I stayed and played with Owen while Peter took Harriet home to nap. We role played secret agent in the park and on the way home.

Today it was Arts Week. We went to see Owen's 'exhibition' at his preschool, and then went to see Mizue's amazing paper cut. I carried Harriet in a Wrapsody Breeze wrap and felt like a hippie mum except when she was pinching my arm and neck, making me scream in pain. Domestic abuse!

Today we went to the Straw Kitchen at Whichford Pottery for lunch and met up with Alice and Simon. It was such a super lovely day and place, and company. A perfect day. When we drove home, both children fell asleep in the car, so I got to do some sketching at our front lawn while Peter did weeding (which he enjoyed!).

Today I was exhausted again from being too excited yesterday and from Harriet being noisy in the night. In the evening I didn't sketch again as I was busy catching up with all the Sketchbook Revival videos (about 2 hours of it each day, and which were only available for limited days), which was kind of ironic. I also discovered the wonderfully inspiring Love Life Drawing tutorials which are making me keen to try life drawing now!  So many videos to watch and no time to actually sketch!
