Tea parties and making soft space

Been feeling a lot better since the last post and im going to try to be more positive on blogger/DA cause no one likes a mopey dopey. The mood has improved because ive been incredibly productive and going out and doing fun activities.

My nieces were over at the school holidays and we had a grand time, i let them use my tiny tea set so we could have a picnic. It was very warm even if it does'nt look it and the sun was out for a change. My nieces are lovely and so sweet they get so excited over the littlest things cause they dont get to really do much. Their zest for life does rub off on you but can make one drain of energy since im such an old lady now. X3

This is my duck umbrella or 'brolly' as we call it in Scotland for short, i must when to keep the sun off and look simply adorable.

This is us being oh so British with tea the life blood of Britain! (Their was not any real tea here but you get the idea.)
Mr Beetle came to join our tea party he wanted some of the yummy goodness we chatted over a cuppa and mused over people and Beetle things.

We took my Nieces up to a small animal park thats been in my town for a super long time since i was little, ive not been there since i was 10 years old. It has friendly rare breeds of farm animals and nature trials and a play park. Its a very nice place and it used to have more but our smelly Council wont fund it at all so they lost the licence for animals they used to have and other things. Its still a nice place tho and i doubt the public would let it close.

After seeing all the different chickens they have its made me want a chicken so much, i would love to have some on my own small farm or cottage if i got one in the future.
 Mrs Peacock.
 Mr Peacock kept trying to get Mrs Peacocks attention with his tail feathers but the public kept walking by and making her walk away he must of been so frustrated lol!
 A happy pig.

A happy hand.

Ive been very productive aswell by tidying up our spare room in the house to be an art room for myself so i have more focus and privacy for my work. It took me days to tidy the room that had 10 years or more worth of stuff in it. It was almost like being in a junk shop their was countless drawings i did all the way through primary school, highschool and college. So many books, scraps, photographs, dvds and videos, childhood toys and fancy dress from past halloweens. 
But finally i tidied it all and i feel pretty good about it i cant wait to start work on my nice clean desk.

I got these sweet little animal paintings from charity shops a long with beautiful empty frames which i plan to put work into. Also i put past school work on the walls aswell to make the place less lonely and to add inspiration.

All my lovely drawing and reference books. Speaking of books ive nearly finished reading Through the Looking Glass its been such a fun ride. Me and my friend even tried the chess puzzle at the start of the book and it actually works how clever Mr Carrol was!
