Did Ya Miss Me? ( With Every Shot So Far )

I am back...I am feeling clearer than I have in a long time.
Having time away has helped me more than I can express.
I missed my daughter sooooo much and went straight to her place before I even went home.
She now has a little baby bump tummy and looks so beautiful.

We hugged, I handed over gifts and all was right with the world.

I am happy to announce that I am the proud owner of the now famous 'Guinea Pig" painting.

Word had spread like wild fire. I arrived at the youth club a little late only to be greeted by a cry of-

"This is the lady that wants to buy your picture"

I then entered into intense negotiations with a lovely 10 year old girl, who was soooo excited I thought she may burst, the handsome sum of $5 was agreed upon.

Her mother, who had brought her to youth club especially, took photos of the artist handing me the "Guinea Pig" and there was talk of the $5 being framed and kept as a memento of the occasion.

What can I say...It was all just MAGIC.

I felt like I had entered the pages of a Famous Five story-

"Bags of lettuce and lashings of ginger beer for everyone" I felt like saying.

I will write more soon and will have some photos to share with you.

no no no NO! you are supposed to say, "I bought this naive work from a young artist in (whatwever state/direction) it was very reasonably priced".

good to see you didn't get boomeranged to death by kangaroos on fire .(the cause of 93% of all australian deaths).

I would have commented on this earlier today, but I've been fighting with a big kangaroo who had a boomerang. Hmm.
Gorgeous story :)
