If you've been with me a while, you might remember a baby book idea I was developing earlier in the year. It's slightly unusual for me, as I'm working on a text as well as the images.
Time is getting seriously sneaky these days: I daren't stop for a cup of tea, or when I look up, another year will have disappeared on me.
Anyway, I've finally cleared my desk of sundry admin, so it's time to get back down to things. Last year I did some research on studies into Early Learning, which I've been re-reading, getting back up to speed. To be truthful, though some people thrive on it, I HATE research. I'd rather be drawing than spending an afternoon with my nose in 'Key findings of the Rose Review into the teaching of reading' and the 'Imitation Studies and Perceptual Preference Studies Report'. Urggh.
However, it is really useful stuff for influencing how I shape the project and could also help me sell the idea to potential publishers, so it's all worth it.
I took a break though, to do the drawing above: the foot that has been giving me all the trouble recently! John says I have really ugly feet: he's such a charmer.
