First Hello of the New Year

Hello all hope you all are keeping well and your New Year started with lots of exciting things and for those who have had a trying past year I am wishing for good times to come your way.

Thought I'd share a few images of my holidays. We went to a bird sanctuary sorry can't show you the photos as my camera was not sophisticated enough to take photos of birds that were nesting far away. However here are some photos I took of a couple selling brightly coloured plastic toys in the village.

A lovely butterfly

A millipede curled up inbetween a crack in the stones.

A monkey who came too close to me so my camera shook as I got a bit nervous

A baby monkey trying to climb a tree.

A bit of doodling

Just trying to see if I remember how to paint lol! The apple looks a bit squashed up.

Glad to be back and blogging. I sure did miss you all.
