I'm back..... and a quick introduction.


Jack aka Prince Twinkle of the Toes

What a wonderful, busy, tiring, crazy, emotional, awe inspiring time I have been having over the last few months. Our beautiful son Jack, aka Prince Twinkle of the Toes (aren't they delicious?) arrived on Halloween, our anniversary - we couldn't have planned it better. We have had a lovely time getting to know each other and settling in as a family. His arrival has brought much joy and many changes to our lives, all for the better. 


I really must say a huge thank you to the medical team at Poole Maternity Hospital for the excellent care that they took of us both before and after the birth. They really were stars! Everyone was so kind, helpful and caring - thank you for keeping us safe, we are truly grateful.

A big thank you too, from the bottom of our hearts to everyone for all the messages of congratulations, kind thoughts and gifts. They have all meant so much to me and my little family.



Now it is late spring and the swallows have arrived and so I know it is time to get back to work. Gently at first, I feel like I will be easing myself into it. My new studio assistant will need to learn the routines (I will need to find new ones that work for the both of us.) One of the many changes is that I now must work in much shorter and more concentrated bursts of time so I am aiming for blog posts once a week for the next few months and will see how I go from there. I'm looking forward to getting back to work and definitely looking forward to getting back to blogging.

He has a beautiful smile that beautiful little Prince. At the moment those little feet are wise in his coufin, enjoy fully these wonderful moments of childhood.
Welcome Back, Lisa.

Hi Lisa you may have to work small to start with as there are going to be many demands from your new studio assistant young Jack! Lovely to hear from you again.

Vandy said...

So good to see you're back again - and to meet your gorgeous little man. Look forward to seeing paintings again when you get back into the swing of things.

Terrific to see you back. The young-un is sitting on my desk with my grands.

Lorraine Brown said...

Beautiful baby Lisa, congratulations and good luck with getting back to your art

Jeanette Jobson said...

I must add my congratulations on a handsome son. He's beyond adorable!

And dare I say it - baby steps back into the art routine. Little people have no respect for routine :)but I'm sure he'll be gentle on you.

Hi Bruce, thank you so much. It really is magical watching this little person develop day by day, I'm enjoying every minute of it.
- best wishes

Thank you Judy. I'm a proud mummy :o)

Hi Lydie, thank you. I love his little feet, they are too cute.

Hi Caroline, I'm concentrating on the small sizes and watercolours as they are more easily put downable at the moment. I'm getting back into drawing and am visiting your new tree blog with interest. Great stuff!

Hi Vandy, hopefully not too much longer. I have a couple of things in the pipeline.

Hi Rhonda, thank you

Hi Zoe, Jack sends one of his special smiles :o) thank you.

Hello Lorraine, thank you.

Hi Jeanette, thank you. Baby steps indeed ;o) so far the only routine we regularly stick to is no routine but I dare say we will get there.....one day.
