It has been a strange two days without my daughter who has gone on her first camp, and the first proper time away from family. She was so exited! I can remember vividly going away in year 6 to Wales and loving every single minute.Now the boot's on the other foot I realise my mum would have missed me! Before I went on the coach she gave me a little necklace that I now carry in my purse.
It was Easter time hence the chick. I gave my daughter a pillow pet to take (she didn't want to take a toy, she always worries what people think- bless)
The things my mum always kept in her purse were these little charms.
I think it's a Cornish Piskie and obviously an old boot for luck!
I am a sentimental soul but I'm sure I'm not alone
What's in your wallet?!
I have been playing with clay today!
I had a few ideas in my sketchbook and whilst looking at my little chick I thought I'd try some little creatures myself. They all need painting.
'Scuse ultra dry hands from the clay of course, and washing dishes...cleaning floors doors etc...
A while ago I started a small clay figure and added small hooks to be able to join the limbs together.
Photograph as awful as ever but you get the idea. I was looking at some clay dolls from fifth century Greece and Rome in a book I have. You'll find some beautiful ancient artefacts on Pinterest too.
Hope you all have a lovely evening.
