I went to see a ridiculously big fire work display over a mountain lake at the weekend which made my eyes dance and my ear bleed (slightly), it was wonderful. And contrary to my fears at the time, its three days on and I still have not gone blind, happy days.
A wee bird thwacked off the side of the house and just about fell on my lap the other day. At first I thought some effer was throwing rocks at me but once I recovered from the shock I managed to draw it, twice. It sat a bit dazed, looking at me disdainfully whilst I drew then flew off like nothing happened. Seemed like a nice chap.
