and a little bit about me too!

I'm back.. as I have been to VENICE!!

Wow..what a busy few days I have had. Mr M took me to Venice!!

We walked and walked every where and like a pair of aging we trooped with our sketchbooks to capture the buildings... (If any one used to watch the The Fast show me and Mr M took it in turns being Jonny!) my pictures looked a little doolderly as I tend to flatten everything following no laws of perspective at all!

My mum and dad came to house and Silkie 'sit', and apparently she got braver and cheekier as she slept by my dads head a couple of nights, can you believe it.

I think my favourite thing was the abandoned houses...I have always had a bit of a 'thing' about abandoned houses, places and ghost towns...and there were hundreds to look at.

Sorry that I havent been able to message on your blogs lately, with one thing and another I just havent had the time to visit blog land as much as I'd like! (I will make amends I promise!!)

Happy hump day!

Love Sam xx
