This week has been particularly crap. So Saturday morning comes, got to lie in bed longer, drink tea and catch up on the ipad – bliss! I managed to catch Mia for five minutes before she headed off into town, to sit for me. She showed off her new piercings, I was trying out my new camera.
The end of my week is definitely looking up.

Very behind. Who cares? Felt wrong not to complete the project that was meant to get me back to being creative after months of studio work.
Freeda is our friends dog, she came to stay for a few days and lovingly watched Mia eating toast in the mornings.

Still have almost two weeks left of holidays and I have to be honest I’ve not done all I want to do and feel I have wasted some of my time – the odd day here and there passed with nothingness. No point dwelling on what has been. Here’s to the next almost two weeks!
Going through some old images I found this one of my Mum when we visited the Botanics, probably two years ago now, when she and Dad were up visiting. Incidentally, one of me favourite images of my Dad was taken there. Mum and Dad are visiting this coming weekend, which I am looking forward to. We will drink lots of wine, play cribbage, talk a lot of crap and hopefully soak up some of the Edinburgh Fringe atmosphere.
Visited Scottish artist Jim Lambie exhibition at the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh, which is showing until 19 October. He uses everyday items to make colourful artwork. The downstairs exhibition space was taken over by mirrored ladders in bright colours, these were my favourite. Upstairs was his iconic striped floor. Mia, as per, was not in the slight bit interested and spent her time looking in the shop – I love this shot of her in the reflection of the mirrors, viewing cards in the window….
Jim Lambie’s stripy floor, I love the reflection of the light shining through the ceiling window.
Lunch in the land of the chicken, they do a good range of vege burgers for us vegetarians.
