little happenings

This is another update post, I'm sorry. I thought I would just include some things out of my personal life and share it with you.

Many of you know that I sail and a few weekends ago I finally went and got my qualification to become a sailing coach which was very exciting. For the past year I've been training and learning how to coach after sailing for 4 year and now I can say I have a job in the weekends and the holidays in teaching kids how to sail.

The summer has been beautiful here and I've been taking lot's of walks around the waterfront on nice summer turned autumn evenings. It's so enjoyable to go for walks that turn into exploring beaches and walkways.

Ever since the beginning of the term, I've been working on my first art internal. On Tuesday I hand it in and it seems so weird to be parting with it. It's all my work from the year so far, but it's going to be a relief to get marked as it's been so much work and I'm so proud of it. These watercolour drawings are probably my favourite page from my portfolio that is full of plant, seashell and insect studies as well as birds and self portraits - it's a big variety!

I've got a couple of new things lately. The jumper pictured above for winter is the comfiest thing ever and it's covered in gold foil sparkles!!!

I hope you enjoyed this little update. I'm going to start posting again properly soon, I promise! So much planned for you guys!!
