The end of a busy week

Yip, yip yip: IT'S FRIDAY!

I've had such an up and down week this week what with argumentative colleagues and crazy sisters, but I'm pleased to announce it will be ending on a high note! My mum went in for an operation yesterday (on her foot, I won't share the gory details but she'll be on crutches for 3 months...)  and understandably I was quite concerned BUT she's on her way home now from the hospital (good old Step Dad has gone to collect her) and she seems back to her normal self: YIPEEEEE! I am going to see her tonight to make sure she's comfortable and well fed/watered! I'll also be seeing Treasure Hunt Boy ALL WEEKEND which I am very excite about! OMG I'M MEETING HIS BUDDIES TOO! Talk about scary... I hope they like me :-S  eeeekkkk!!! Wish me luck...

I made this today :-) :

Fa la la la and all that!! HAPPY WEEKENDING TO YOU!

Egg Magician: The Final


How are things folks? I am feeling much happier today, phew! I'm not letting grumpy sisters or colleagues get the better of me. Just because they're negative does not mean I have to be dragged into feeling that way too!

The final installment:

I love eggy soldiers for breakfast!

Creepy Cat

Happy Tuesday Guys and Gals :-)

I'm actually a little down today, boooooo :-(  Firstly I'm in the middle of a major barny with my (neurotic) sister and secondly a colleague at (actual) work is becomming increasingly difficult, argumentative and negative; so much so, I'm finding it hard to stay my normal cheery self around him. *big sigh*  I try so hard to be smiley and get on with everyone so when stuff like this happens it really effects me :-(  *little cry of despair*

Maybe Creepy Cat can distract/disturb me enough to take my mind off everything?!

I think I will cheer myself up by:
1. chatting to my Aunty Jean who is getting a new kitty this week!
2. searching for dachshund puppy (I so badly WANT one) pics on the internet
3. emailing my lovely buddies and maybe cahtting to them at lunch time
4. seeing The Treasure Hunt Boy if he is free :-)

Book Florist I am in agreement on the keeper factor! I'll be seeing Wicked (it'll be my second time) end of September. And DesignJessica, where has your Boy been then?! :-(

Heeeeeellllllloooooooooo!!! How are you all?!! HAPPY MONDAY TO YOUUUUUU!!

I had such a fantabulous birthday weekend (yep, birthday fun is stiiiillll going on!)! I went to Hampton Court Palace with lots of my bestest buddies and I even got to walk around holding the lovely baby Jacob (with a no doubt watchful eye from parents Caroline and Dave!), good times! :-)  I feel so very much loved and so incredibly lucky!

To everyone who has joined in on my birthday fun whether it be in person, by post or over the net: THANKS! this is for you-hoooooo!!

Lots of love to you all :-)

To designJessica: ha ha! I wasn't there but good spotting of the very similar hearts!! :-D

And for the romantics: The Boy made a treasure map and devised a treasure hunt for me!! All the treasure/birthday booty was spot on (hurrah!) and the final gift was a beautiful bunch of sunflowers (my fave) and tickets to see my favourite musical WICKED!! YIPPEEEEEEEEEEE!!! xxxx

Yip yip yip, what a lovely 28th Birthday!

Hi all!

Hope all is sunshine and rainbows with you-hoooo! I had an absolutely fantastical day yesterday and still feel very much in the birthday spirit now! WOO-HOO! I received loads of messages yesterday and it was so nice to see the birthday wishes from lovely Lucy and brilliant Book Florist on my last post too! I feel so fortunate to have so many good people in my life in whatever shape or form! :-)

Today's pic is a bit of a stinker:

Sorry! ha ha ha!

The Egg Magician: Part 2 (of 4)

Happy Tuesday!

And thank you to all who have commented on my last post! YEEAAAAHHHHHH! Romance!! ;-)

I am very happy today despite it being grotty outside. This is because IT IS MY BIRTHDAY TOMORROW and although I will be 28 and should perhaps be worried about getting older, I actually feel like I am about 8 and I simply love it that tomorrow is MY SPECIAL DAY. Yes yes, I know I share MY BIRTHDAY with 18million others (thank you Google for helping me find that fact) but I can't help getting excited about it!! I put birthday decorations up in my house last week! HE HE HE!

Egg Magician Part 2 for your eyes:

There will be 4 parts to this "comic" in case you were wondering! Then, I think I'll go back to my usual stuffs for a bit!

I probably won't be posting tomorrow but I'll do my best to get something up on Thurs! :-)
Lots of love from the Birthday Nanny xxxx

Happy NEW WEEK Readers!!

How was your weekend? MINE WAS FANTASTIC! I had such a great time with lovely Anna. I miss her so much now, boooooo! JERSEY BOYS totally surpassed my expectations and was awesome, I'd defo recommend it and I'd certainly see it again! There was quite a bit of swearing which I wasn't expecting but I'm no prude so got over it quite quickly. GO AND SEE IT if you get the chance, I was singing my head off at the end! "SHHHHHHHEEEERRRRRY BAY-YAY-BY, SHERRY BABY!"

As with most of my ideas, I'm not entirely sure why this little thing popped into my head, but it did so here it is:

Hope you likey!!
Nanny S-A XXX

ps: Umm, things with the boy are going great for all you  fellow romantics out there... It's so weird that a couple of months ago I had no idea he even existed but then: BAM! There he was :-) YEY! I keep writing this in small text as I get strangely shy about these things; weird for someone who is normally very confident and loud!!! OMG I LOVE ROMANCE!!! YIPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! xxxxx

This took longer than I thought it would...

Happy Friday Peeps!

How exciting, the end of the working week is almost upon us, hope you've got something wonderful/relaxing/happy fun times *(delete as appropriate) planned. I have my super friend Anna coming to stay; I've not seen her since her wedding back in April so I am even MORE excited than I usually am on a Friday. Tomorrow we're heading into London to see Jersey Boys which I am told is BRILLIANT. OOOOOH AND IT'S ONLY 5 MORE DAYS UNTIL MY BIRTHDAY!! yippeeeeee!! It is fair to say I am finding concentrating difficult today seeing as there is sooooo much going on! :-D

here is another comic strip, it took longer than I though it would as mentioned in the title of this post! If you click the image it should open up in a new window/tab if you're having difficulty reading it!

have a good one! xxx

A new venture for Nanny S-A

Happy Wednesday!

I am still feeling full of jollity! YEEAAAAAAHHHHH! I will maybe keep you updated with any romantical advancements but I'm not promising anything! HA HA HA!

So, the new venture for me is tiny comic strips... here's my first! They definitely won't all be "me" based but the ones that are may perhaps give all you lovely readers a bit of an insight into the goings on in my head!!

life is beautiful!

Hello to all my lovely readers!

Nanny is feeling so very happy and jolly and full of butterflies and excitement today! Isn't life just beautiful??! Fa la la! I think all this has sparked from looking forward to my birthday next week and knowing I'm going to see all of my favourite people within the space of 2 weeks!! YEAAAAHHHHH!

*oh and I, errr, may have also met a nice boy which is helping to bring a smile to my face! DON'T TELL ANYONE! ah-ha-ha!

Byeeeeee! Nanny S-A xxx

end of the week, I need some sleeps

Happy Friday and Weekending to you!

This week feels so unbelievably LOOOOOONG, thank goodness its nearly over!! Also, I am having trouble sleeping again which is never a good thing. Hopefully I'll be able to catch up on some snoozings this weekend, I've simply had ENOUGH of feeling grotty and groggy :-(

More French inspired goodness for you... not sure if it's my strongest work but I kinda like it!

Thursday already?!

Howdy Ho All!

I have had a crazy busy week! Work is picking up immensely and my social life has been a bit hectic too so apologies for my rubbish posting this week. Hopefully I'll be back up to speed after this weekend (think I'm going to have a day long drawing and planning session on Saturday!). I'm thinking of putting all of these into a book, you know, like a coffee table kind of read... what do you think?

Today's feast for your eyes:

Keep smiling peeps!

Howdy Monday, how lovely to see you!

A new week! YEY! Last week was sooo much fun, not only was it filled with happy and sunshine but I also went to an amazing festival and boogied my socks off! I am pretty tired now but still feeling uber buzzy and happy!! YIPPPEEEEEE! Bring on more happiness filled weeks :-)

My family are all massive, crazy characters especially on my Mother's side as they are LOUD and foreign. Anyway my cousin Danielle contacted me last week to ask if I'd draw something for her and of course I obliged; any excuse to doodle! She's a bit of a legend really as she sort of ran away to the circus, learnt to do all manner of cool circus-y things then, er, ran away FROM the circus back home! Well, that's the version of the story I like anyways! Her speciality is hooping! SO, TA DA!! HERE IT IS. Err, I perhaps should point out that when we were younger we were obsessed with saying the word "PORK" (don't ask!!) so it was only right Danielle should be depicted as a leg of pork. SORRY FOR ALL YOU VEGETARIANS OUT THERE!

oooh, I hope she likes it... !
