Today has been a full day. Got up and had yet another walk down into Falmouth, this time with Chris, and had a mooch around the shops in town, in particular Dig N' Delve, one of the greatest and craziest shops in the town! Full of anything you could possibly think of, all sorts of stuff. I got my mom a nice old copy of The King's General by Daphne Du Maurier as she loves her. A bit mildewed but you can't argue for 75p.
Next we went into Truro for a little look around, and I purchased the new Audrey Niffenegger novel, The Fearful Symmetry. I loved the last book of hers I read, The Time Traveler's Wife, which I bought after seeing her at a talk she did at my uni (University College Falmouth) and I thought she was a brilliant character, so I figured her writing would be just as enigmatic as she was, which turned out to be true. I hope that this book is as compelling as the last.
Finally, I bought some poi from another shop in Truro. Now, I have never tried these before, and my boyfriend is interested in learning too so we decided to invest in some. I had a practise in the garden earlier, and was really getting into it when the cat from two doors down ran under the gate and started to claw at my poi! It made a pretty fun game, watching it leap about 3ft into the air every so often, but I had to put them down when I just couldn't get any progress made because of that cat!
has been a good day, however have no relevant pictures to put up, so I think I'll just show you a bit of my work. Here's a painting I did of Kristen Stewart (you'll probably know her as Bella from Twilight) for my summer sketchbook. Enjoy! :)
