This morning I've been trying to sort out my art room - not a job for the faint hearted! Unfortunately I'm easily sidetracked so when I came across this old sketch book of mine I kissed goodbye to half an hour of valuable sorting time (and found another excuse for a cup of tea). After looking through it I thought I would share it with you too - there goes another 20 minutes or so.
This little sketch book is a triumph for me. I started it nearly 10 years ago to the day. On the eve of me starting a HND course in Fine Art at Hereford College. I wanted to keep a sketch book diary to record one thing a day in picture format - amazingly I kept it going right up until the last page, that's why it's a triumph! I would take this pocket sized book everywhere and I became almost obsessed with my daily entries.
WARNING - the spelling in this little book is horrendous!
It always makes me laugh when I read it.
As you can see I was in the habit of recording every day things, but they were things that stuck in my mind for that day. It's odd but flicking through I'm almost back there in time, but then I suppose that's what a diary is for, isn't it.
God, this must have been a boring day to record that someone had bought a new pair of slippers! Oh my life was so Rock and Roll back then...ha!
At the time I was trying to learn the clarinet...what happened to that clarinet?...oh there it is over there...I'll get that out in a mo....there goes another hour...
I can't believe it's been 10 years.
Trout for tea - mmmmm
10 years ago we were all excitedly awaiting the arrival of two babies, one to my eldest sister Jo and her husband Colin and the other to one of my other sisters Deb and her partner John. Hence the knitting entry.
