Hey guys, hope that 2012 is treating ewe well so far?
2011 ended with the great build starting and mumborg going into hospital. To elaborate, the house is being made disabled friendly, with ramps installed, doors being widened, wet room added downstairs and the kitchen being kitted out with things suitable for those of wheelchair height. A lot of planning was needed to get this off the ground, but things are going well so far!
Mumborg was not meant to be in hospital, as she was meant to be staying with one of my sisters and keeping out of the way of the building work. Unfortunately she got quite ill and had to go into hospital once more, but she had managed a whole two years without a hospital stay, which is a new record for her. She is on the mend now and has been moved to hospital for rehabilitation and physiotherapy for a few weeks. The hope is that the building work finishing coincides with her coming out of hospital and enjoying the new, but old, house.
The building work and hospital stuff slowed down my The Doodologist stuff, well not the ideas and plans, just the time and space to have my paints and pens out. So I had a bit of time to play around with some digital arty farty stuff. Ewe can see examples of it, in this very post. They have been created using GIMP ( like photoshop, but free) and various public domain vintage/antique illustrations, with free clip art and textures thrown in too. These particular ones have a slight Valentines/Love theme, but more to be added. If you have any specific questions, feel free to fling them my way.
Now that the downstairs is empty and the builders have free reign with the house, I have free reign to unleash the pens, paints and doodles. So excuse me, the doodle cave is calling. Please follow my updates via facebook/twitter to be more regularly updated on all things arty/farty.
