snowy commute

I cycled home from college yesterday and almost froze my fingers off, even though I was wearing two pairs of gloves. Warming them up at home involved sticking them in my armpits and jumping around, hollering 'Yow! Yow! Yow!' a lot. It's been snowing all morning.

I'm working on simplifying my watercolour figures, more like the earlier gouache paintings I did, with birds and little monsters and things.

Aw, this is SWEET! I love the red cheeks and noses, and those crazy buildings in the background!

The muted colours really work, love the hint of red.
I don't remember there being this much snow since I was about 8, weird! x

Yeah! Someone on the radio just said it's the most snow we've had in ten years!

That sounds like a right pain in the bum. You could always get yourself a "work phone", either pay as you go mobile or another fixed line. Then you wouldn't have to bother answering the "home" phone. Great drawings as normal, brightens my day.

Hi, Dan!

Glad you like it! I was thinking about that, using my mobile for work things and my landline for social stuff. But I hate talking on my mobile, and keeping the batteries up all the time. But maybe I'll have to get over my luddite dislike of my mobile.

Is your landline on BT? You can get their message service which is exactly like having an answering machine except it's free (I think). That way you could wait until the phone stops ringing, then if it was someone you actually wanted to speak to, you could call them right back.
Totally with you on this one. If we were meant to live our lives at the beck and call of the telephone, then what was the point of inventing e-mail?

I say screen mercilessly. If it sounds like life or death, go for it. Otherwise, your workflow is more important. My rule is that I answer for my mom and Stephen, and that's it; even then, if I'm on my work timer, I say I need to keep it short. But you're probably more in demand than I am :) Good luck sorting this out....
