Epson R300

In 7 years of ownership, my trusty R300 has never let me down. Lately it has been squeaking and squealing. It's clearly not at all happy :-(
I'll be a bit sad to see it go, it prints on anything and still delivers great quality!

Success Kid

Quite pleased with myself today. I managed to sneak 'Success kid' into a client moodboard. :-)

Adobe Edge

Been playing around with Adobe Edge a little bit, it's an HTML 5 animationdesign interface. The iPad and iPhone don't use Adobe Flash and so it's something that I'm going to need to learn! I love learning new software. Thankfully Edge is fairly straightforward. Bit basic at the moment though. I only learnt about it a few days ago. Exciting!

Cookie's favorite pastime

Like many other dogs, Cookie's favorite pastime is catching balls in the back garden.

And then chilling out on the sofa...

Basement railing

Frog, Becka and I all agree this is a terrible excuse for a bannister as you come into the basement. It confused all of us as to whether it was some kind of support too. We are now very confident it is nt and I've started sawing it away! (It's concreted into the floor)

Missing the Mazda

Although it has been raining the past few days, I do really miss the Mazda at the moment! :-( Ah, well - much better off without it. And anyway, we wouldn't be able to fit Cookie-cuddles in there!

Was nice to see mum and dad this week. I think they really liked Cookie. Tilly especially got on well with her! :-)

Cookie, fashioning her cool seat belt harness for the car!

My new design studio!

I finally have a new design studio. After a hell of a lot of hard work in the basement, it's all come together. It still needs the odd bit doing here and there, including a long work surface, but it's otherwise in a state where I can get some decent work done. It's actually a lot better than I ever expected it to be!

Have a look at this earlier post for comparison!

Little Miss 'Sniffle-Nose'

Cookie has the sniffiliest nose around. I call her 'Little Miss sniffle nose'!

She also has slippery pads. Need to sort the house out a bit more!

Sleepy sniffle-noooose!

Chris Carr - 'Victims'

Quite proud of Chris at the moment. His new film 'Victims' is getting a lot of media attention. It stars ex- 'The beautiful south' singer Briana Corigan as well as Hattie Morahan (Outnumbered, Sense and Sensibility).

I really can't wait to see it.

Frogs birthday

It was Frogs birthday a few weeks ago, a small affair since he doesn't really think much of it.

Being a good girl today

Cookie is being a good girl today. I'm downstairs in the basement plastering, and she doesn't like being left alone. I'm making up for it with some extra long ball throwing in the back garden, which is her favorite pastime. She's addicted to tennis balls and although tries, has not mastered holding more than one in her mouth at a time.

Though, I have to say, she's not always very graceful.

Fixing up the basement.

My 'studio' down in the basement was in need of some serious re-build. It's basically falling apart around me and so I decided to undertake the rather long and tiring job of fixing it up.

It needs a lot of re-plastering, especially on the ceiling, which regularly falls on your head when you are in there.

The added problem is the masses of junk that I have to work with. Some of it's lovely, but it's a bit too much at times.....

Stage one (the hardest stage) Getting Frog to sort out some of his junk! Believe it or not, he had almost finished at this photo.


I uncovered some real problems along the way. Today part of the top edge fell away! My dad suggested a bit of bespoke wood, then a few coats of plaster.

Ideally, I would like to plaster the whole wall flat, but I don't think we have the budget for it. For now I'm just filling in the really big holes!

Getting there! This is the entrance / stairway, It needs some tidying up, but this parts more or less done.
I might construct a new bannister at some point.
