compendium-of-wisdomBrown Owl has published a pamphlet of Useful Sayings to catch the Village Hall Coffee Morning Market. It is full of timely advice for those trudging along The Road to Self-Improvement.

  2. get a grip for the future.

Where I went Wrong:

Mistake #2. I snuggled up on a bean bag with lots of cushions under a rug, making myself thoroughly warm and cosy.



Having enjoyed Episode 1 very much, I thought I’d quickly watch Episode 2:

  2. Your drawings are so cool! I have a rule that I never start watching netflix after 9:30 on weekdays. Ah!

    • Hi Becca, I’m glad you like my pictures! What an extremely wise rule – I shall adopt it immediately.
