Queen's View

Originally uploaded by fuzzydragons

This is where we went the other day, Queen's View. Gorgeous views and the weather was wonderful so it was a nice drive. We eventually ran out of road so had to turn back :p


Went to Loch Ness today in search of Nessie, so pics tomorrow from that trip :)

A Little Windy Out....

Originally uploaded by fuzzydragons

Went to St.Cyrus today, crossing our fingers that the rain would let off or we would be getting pretty wet. Thankfully by the time we got there, the rain had turned to a few drops and the crazy one could go sniff all the rabbit holes everywhere. At least she didn't see a rabbit, even tho it would have been a funny site to see her drag Mr.F after one :p

As usual Sky was terrified to go into the water, but eventually she jumped in after Mr.F to get her ball....but then was side swiped by a giant lab/retriever :p

She can get some speed up when she wants to. I am really thinking of getting her into flyball when she is a bit older since she loves chasing her ball :)

One wet happy dog later :)

And Dunnottar Castle. Now if I had of known we could have taken Sky there on her lead, we would have went there today. But since a lot of places don't allow dogs I didn't think we could. At least I know now that we can so hopefully we go here sometime this week as I have always wanted to go here. Not sure why but as soon as I saw it from a distance I have wanted to go.

Things found in the park so far....

1.  golf club. no idea what kind, but sky thought it was a giant stick and wanted to eat it.
2. over a dozen golf balls a few days later....now if only I had of kept the golf club I could have practised my golf swing :p

I am waiting now to find either a whole set of golf clubs or a small lost golf caddy wondering around the park :p

Started on the Halloween dragons. Chose blue for this one to try to keep him more in the background and so that the pumpkin jumps forward more.

A staged shot showing what would happen if Mrs F consumed half a bottle of whisky, well it was that or flash the camera while hanging off the ceiling light :P (personally I thought the latter would have made a better picture but Mrs F thought the light might fall, which given the abilities of council contractors is perhaps what would have happened >> Mr F)

Rain Rain

Originally uploaded by fuzzydragons

Rain or shine, the dog needs a walk. So much rain that the park paths were starting to flood :/ My phone actually takes nice pictures, but not so much when I am trying to keep it dry and have a dog in the other hand pulling me to go on a walk :p Most of the shots were just a blur of green and blue.

And it was actually such a nice day that Sky was being a toy hog in the park earlier :p She gets so confused if you throw both of them at the same time lol

If I was actually on the run, I wouldn't hide in the park..or keep dog treats in my bag :p

Taking a bit longer then I thought it was going to. Going to have to get some more pens, as my tool box of art supplies has gone missing in the move :/ Its around somewhere, just need to keep looking for it I guess. Really hope I find it as most of my brushes and pens are in it.

hmm I guess I could look on the bright side of possibly losing my tools. Shopping spree for new art stuff :D

365 start again?

354 start again?
Originally uploaded by fuzzydragons

Would it be considered really narcissistic to do a 365 day project of myself? I have tried before to do a few 365 day projects, but ended up running out of ideas. Which might happen again, either when I run out of hats or have a really really bad hair day :p

I just hope I learn how to use my camera better by the time I finish with this and I don't promise that the pictures will be interesting, but will try to include pictures of me doing touristy things :p hmm going to have to get a tripod now....

Halloween Dragons

It is never too early for Halloween. Ever :) (72 days away!!) I like working on more then one thing at a time, so figured I might as well get a start on some Halloween dragons and maybe have them done before the actual day this year lol
This is the really rough sketch, doesn't make a lot of sense :p
And the line art, but its not finished. I don't know whether to add another dragon to the right where that circle is, or leave it blank. Anyone have any suggestions? The dragons are not really a huge focus on this one, but I have an idea for a Xmas drawing where the dragons are a huge part of it. If I can think of a few costumes/character I can make the dragons for Halloween I might draw another one, but for now I like this one. Just need to decide if the line art is done, or add something to it.

And It Starts....

dots everywhere again. Don't be surprised if the next time you hear of me, its news that I now reside in a padded room and speak in tongues :p

And Once Again a Broken Toe

We haven't really done any gardening this year. Between the dog, moving and everything else, we haven't had time to do more then water the potted flowers and pull out the weeds. At least with the new house we don't have any grass to mow, just a few small bushes to trim, and some rhododendrons to take care of. We took all of the potted plants we had at the flat, and my lilies have decided to add some colour to the front yard finally :) I love this colour, and because of the nice weather we have been having this summer, there are a lot of buds this year to open :) (and lots of reference pics to draw now).

So was watering this pot and turned around, miss judge the step and walked right into a curbstone :/ !%%*&"£!!!!! Turned the air bright blue and hobbled inside. Knew it was broken as the toe twisted more, but ended up going to A&E as the top of my foot hurt to press and very painful to put weight on the foot. I know there is nothing to do with a broken toe other then tape it, but was told that if my foot still hurts or gets any worse, to come back as I could have broken a bone in my foot near my ankle bone (can't remember what it is called). Without an X-ray its hard to say, and it could just be hurt because of the initial shock and swelling. Crossing my fingers its just hurt from the swelling, because I don't want to walk around with a cast... then again, I could get crutches and poke people in the back if they piss me off ;p

So to freak people out that don't like looking at feet, here are the toes on my left foot.
See, the 3 on the left are twisted from being broken. The little one is twisted almost all the way around, almost walking on the toenail. Yes I need a pedicure lol :p I'm pretty hard on my feet.

This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy stayed at home,
This little piggy had roast beef,
This little piggy had none.
And this little piggy went...
"Wee wee wee" all the way home...

Creative Space August 12, 2010

Still not 100% sure where all of my art stuff is, but I needed to draw something before I went insane :p So the start of a pointillism piece.
And 10 minutes later, ready to transfer the line art to thicker paper and go crazy making lots of dots :D

Loch Ness Poll

So Mrs F and I are planning to go to Loch Ness in the near future. However we are having a slight disagreement, I think she should do the touristy thing and go for a swim in the loch and post a video of said swim (Would likely be a funny video and Nessie might appear :P) She however thinks it is a daft idea and that no one wants to watch a video of her pale white skin in swimwear with or without Loch Ness.

So to settle this please vote on the poll at the side please :), come on give her some impetus to be spontaneous :P

Little Too Old for Shoes like this?

:p Don't care lol I really like them. Just have to try not to get tangled up in all the laces. Sky tried to eat them when I was tying them up :p

And this time I promise to be careful with this phone. I'm paranoid about breaking it.
I resisted buying a new bag lol it was so very hard!! So a day of shopping and Sky riding the bus. She did very well, didn't freak out or throw up all over the floor (thankfully!).

Ever since I got back from Dartmouth I have wanted to draw boats, so will probably have some boat drawings soon even if they are just sketches :) Yeah not much point to this blog post lol Just felt like updating :)

Flying Shoe?

Onto Plymouth where I was attacked by a flying sandal :p It came out of no where, but turned out to have gone for a flight off of a kids foot when he went to kick a ball. Could have been a work boot and had of been knocked out I guess lol
Can I please have a house with a view like this? Too much to ask ya think? :p
Nice place to go for a walk or just sit in the sun and people watch (and dodge flying footwear).
The Tinside Pool :) No one swimming that day, just a bunch of kids hanging around trying not to get caught smoking *rolls eyes* hmm probably should have chosen a spot where people couldn't see them from above *rolls eyes* or chucked rocks down at them....no I didn't :p no really!
Guess the flags.
A few statues in the area :)
War memorial. Really nice tribute to the fallen soldiers (Its actually the RN memorial to those lost at sea during WW1 and WW2....you would think with me being in the RN that she would remember that)
Too big for the front of the yard you think? nah, I'me sure Sky would like to play pirate while she watches people walk by :p

Good thing....

I have lots of caffeine to keep me awake lol This is going to take awhile to unpack. And this isn't even half of it :/ And I bought more books today. I need help with my book addiction lol (and yes, Sky has her own window seat lol)
