Paul Thurlby

I love Paul Thurlby's illustrations and prints.
He has teamed up with art director Ruan Milborrow at mr.h 
for The French Tourist Board in the UK to produce 
these Jaques Tati-inspired posters encouraging us to 
visit France on our jolly holidays this year.
They are just wonderful 
Bonnes Vacances!

Gorgeous George

I went to my friend Claire's to meet with
this lovely little bundle of fun.
He really does live up to his name.
Nice to meet you Gorgeous George!

My large-haired eldest has been suffering with a hideous cough for the last 4 weeks.
On thursday, however, things took a terrible turn for the worse.
He started choking.  
It was so terrifying. 
We ended up in A&E and were told that he had an infection and possibly a cyst on his larynx.
The poor boy has 2 inhalers, anti-histamine and an asthma drug daily and also carries an epi-pen.
This week he'll be off school.  
Can't play football and will be in hospital for horrid procedure.  
Every time he coughs I freeze and wait for him to breathe.
All doesn't seem fair!

I'll be filling my worry time looking for nice things on the interweb as a distraction!

Twenty seven (really??) years ago I moved to Liverpool to do
my degree in graphic design.
It was here I met my husband, some of my closest friends, had the time of my life, had the most beautiful view of the Anglican Cathederal from my bedroom window, learned to love The Smiths and how to drink beer like the boys!
Last weekend we traveled up to Chester and Liverpool. Large-haired eldest is an Everton supporter so he went to his first Goodison match (they won-hooray!). We took the cheeslets on a speedy trip around our old haunts, including the bombed out church, The Philharmonic, Hope Street, Gambier Terrace, Ye Crack, Catherine Street, The Tabac and The Bluecoat.
Thank you Liverpool for retaining your wonderful charm and humour and for being one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen.

He's got a ticket to ride.........

On our way back from Chester today we saw this rather 
dapper little furry chap on the back of a motorbike.  
Check out those cool glasses!
