Shaun in the City: Shaun’s Trail

Hooray, another set of outdoor sculptures to find…this time Shaun the Sheep (created by Aardman) is popping up all across London in a project called Shaun in the City. Last Thursday, we did the first one, Shaun’s Trail, which took us from Oxford Circus, down Regent Street, through Piccadilly Circus, China Town, Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square, and finishing at the Mall.

Finding the Right Writing Journal

When I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer over 3 years ago, I started keeping a journal. Initially, it was just intended to record any side effects from treatment, but over time it became much more than that.

Watercolour Sketchbook

It’s been a while since I’ve done a blog post, mostly because I have been rather obsessed with painting watercolours. In the past I have been a little scared of watercolour paints, because they can be unpredictable and it can be difficult to correct mistakes. However, I love the look of watercolours, especially with pen or ink, and I’ve been inspired by Alisa Burke who runs an online watercolour class.

Bloomsbury: Books About Town

Early last week, we did our fourth (and final) Books About Town trail in London. This one was around the Bloomsbury area, running from Long Acre up to Tavistock Place. I’ve really enjoyed doing these trails, especially as I got to see parts of London I hadn’t seen before. Photos of the other book bench trails: Greenwich, Riverside and The City. Many thanks for visiting!

Riverside: Books About Town

End of last week, we did the Riverside Trail, part of Books About Town. We did the Greenwich Trail the other week. This time we managed to get all of them which was rather wonderful! There is a lot going on around this part of London at the moment…two that stood out for me…Festival of Love at South Bank and the Matisse Cut Outs exhibition at the Tate Modern (which I really want to see). As always, thank you for visiting :)
