Used felt tip pens and wax crayon to capture this lovely day.  My son agreed to take me shopping as long as we went to Macdonalds - well, it doesn't quite fit in with my diet, but a Happy Meal cannot have that many calories can it?  :)

We went hoping for sunshine but took a brolly just in case - good thinking!  It rained but we had a great time and discovered this was the day the Olympic torch was coming through town.

And yes, I bought some amazing shoes... actually they are the most comfortable shoes I have owned in a long time, beautiful soft leather.

The thing about being British is you know how to enjoy life even when it rains.

Garden Market & Beach Day

Sketched in pencil and then decided to ink up part of it.  I think the ink looks much better than the pencil.
It was a great day.  We bought plants from the market and garden centre then had doughnuts with fresh cream and maple syrup at the seaside and a stroll along the beach.  Weatherwise a little drizzly but we had a wonderful time.
