In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    Wow, great capture. What was puss cat up to?

  • She just wanted to get down ( : A fraction of a second later, she got her wish, this was taken at 1/500 of a second, on the way down. You know the way they push out of your arms when they don’t want to be held anymore?? Thanks for the comment!
