Not even September yet blues

I've been feeling out of sorts all day today but couldn't quite work out why. I put a post on my work blog about Nick Ashford dying last week and that made me feel quite sad, my eldest daughter Maria went back to Nottingham this morning and Barbara her younger sister moves away from home in a couple of weeks time . Me and Lorna started our family 22 years ago and now that phase of our life is over. Changes in life are generally good things but this just makes me feel sad, sad, sad. And today felt like the first day of autumn, summer seemed to have disappeared overnight, riding my bike home tonight the river felt grey and miserable and at only 7 it was beginning to get dark, maybe I felt down because I felt that summer was over and it had been such a nice one but really I felt as if the summer of my life was over and would never come back again, only autumn and winter to come and then the end.

My first post.

This blog is going to be about my life. I already have a blog all about work and I'd quite like to keep that as it is but sometimes I really want to write and post more about how I feel and what I see and what I like and what interests me rather than write about the things I draw and make.

Today is bank holiday Monday but it feels like a Sunday before going back to school again tomorrow. I took Friday off from the studio so it's been a nice long lazy weekend and here are my girls watching 'Only connect' on telly. Left to right - Lorna (hiding behind the knitting needles !), Maria (just got back from hols in Lake Como and going back to Nottingham very early tomorrow) and Barbara.

And that's that.
