Outside its a proper scarf, glove and hat kind of day be warned. I've been watching a bit of the tennis aswell. Reet another brew before owt else.

Well I've already walked out to the paper shop and returned home and read Creative Review from cover to cover with a brew. I'm thinking I want to check the Alan Fletcher exhibition at the cube gallery in manchester at some point. Plus there's a fashion photography exhibition coming up at Liberty's in London that interests me.

This aft I've heard a snippet they have given sir Terry Wogan an award for retiring, plus they have given Quentin Blake the best illustrator award in conjunction with the Oldie if my ears served me correct. Looks like its gonna be a cold one tomoz so wrap up readers. I'm getting hungry once again, i did notice it was lighter this evening just a tad. Bring on the summer.

It's been a good day plenty of emails, talked to a few mates on the telefunken done some drawings. read the paper. There was a good article on artists lifestyles in the Guardians G2. And Hustle is on tonight what more does an illustrator from Donny want.
Well its the start of a brand new week and I'm feeling optimistic. lots of drawing to be done some cycling and generally have some laughs. I watched Rock and Chips last night got to admit it didn't make me chuckle half as much as Itv's "Take Me Out", "No lighty, No Likey".

Many thanks for the kind emails about my new look website. I'm now on twitter but fear not readers the blog will continue no problem. Email me if your interested in the tote bags seen on my website. Brace yourself readers for tomorrow more snow is en route. Last night I was loving last nights Hustle on the Beeb; I thought the young actress who very briefly was rocking the shorts and Hunter wellies was just missing the flat cap for a very perfect look.

Well readers in the "Big Freeze" all you want on these cold nights is a cheeky cuddle or two. I've not had one in ages. Careful readers when your out and about walking in all this sludge and ice. This idiot nearly fell over three times yesterday.

I think I skidded 90 per cent of the way down to the newsagent. I dodged the dodgy looking yellow snow. Good to see in the newspapers the sledging imagery and snowman building skills of Britain, good times eh. Another day infront of the heater me thinks.

On my short travels today I spotted many a snowman, the best being one clutching an empty bottle of vodka that person has a sense of humour. Everytime I've boiled my kettle I've been interested watching the birds visiting the garden for the nuts I've put out. I watched a Robin for a while because it seemed to be playing about with its flight pattern which was sporadic in the snow that was coming down, it was fascinating.

Looks like another cold week ahead of us, I've been enjoying watching all the visitors to my garden Robins, Bluetits, Blackbirds and a few others for the scraps I've put out. Looks like I'll crank up the heater get the kettle on and doodle lots.

Yesterday I got over to manchester to see an old mate, the train journey was very scenic the hills were covered in snow. It was very Hogwarts express that train journey. I had a splendid breakfast cooked for me and many laughs. In the afternoon I treated myself to a new wrist watch its bright pink and its sure to be a talking point with the ladies. On my return home I spotted a cat toying with a mouse which reminded me more of the Gruffalo.
