I know that my presence on social media has been lacking recently … although I’ve appeared to disappear I have been busy working. I’ve had several commission pieces that I have been working on and now finished. I’m booked into several markets between July and November so thought I would use this month to do a bit of stock building.
I’ve used some of the money that I have earned to buy new tools for the workshop … one of which is a new rolling mill. The new addition will help me to try out new textures as well as expand my range of leaf printed items.
Now onto the title of the post. I was celebrating the finished orders and myself and the other half decided on a trip to Chester Zoo. We had a lovely day wandering around and visiting all the animals … but my favourite moment had to be the most unexpected! We had just been watching the Bush Dogs patrolling their area when we heard a strange sound coming from a nearby bin. Intrigued we moved in for a closer look when a squirrel popped out and he was eating a jam sandwich! He or she was making sure to eat all of the good stuff first, namely the jam before starting in on the bread. I do believe he was having a spot of afternoon tea before going back to play with the relatives lol!
