Morag and Bat thing . . .


I went to keep Mr H company this morning while a job that was supposed to take 1 1/2 hours tops took 3hrs... (why do men always underestimate the time a job will take by half?). While I was waiting patiently I decided to attack my doodling in a different way......so below right I shut my eyes and did a doodle, then fiddled with trying to make my lines into something and "Voila".... a sort of bat creature came to be... I then decided to draw him full frontal.... then obviously a little girl popped out... she's called Morag....have no idea why she looks so sad.... but Battie thing took to her straight away..... I think he's saying "Love me, love me... I'll be your friend...."

I am loving this little bat, are we going to be seeing more of him? As for the men never knowing how long a job takes, I HEAR YOU! my husband is so terrible for that and it drives me mad.

I love little batty guy! He is so cute. TH always says "Let's do (whatever) it will only take a sec." Then it takes hours and he says " I didn't think it would take that long." It's in their genes. xoxo Terah
