Added to the wishlist

This weekend has been just milestone after milestone for Amelia J. Firstly she rolled over from front to back not once but twice and then yesterday while we were in a craft store buying paper she did her first full blown laugh (ha ha ha ha ha ha!) at an unsuspecting sales assistant – he wasn’t particularly funny looking but he did have some wonderfully long dreadlocks. Perhaps she is going to grow up with a penchant for dreadlocks and craft shops. It could be worse.

While checking out Chronicle Books’ site for new release children’s books, I came across Ruby’s Wish which is illustrated by expat Australian Sophie Blackall. A search on the illustrator brings back very little in the way of results, but there are two pages of her work on her agent’s site and a page of the books she has illustrated at Amazon. I really like the way she uses a colour other than black (mostly red) for her outlines which is something I have done a couple of times in some of my things (eg. 1 and 2) but with the subtle blending of the watercolours that she uses the line work looks incredibly beautiful and luminous.

    I’ve been wanting to ask questions about motherhood…I would dearly like to be a mum one day, but the time is not suitable right now…b’cos I’m about to go back to school. But this aside, every other security I have…it’s just that the whole idea scares me. I hear soooo many painful stories about child rearing that it’s enough to put me off for life. Maybe I just hear all the bad shit b’cos I let everyone get it off thier chest. Anyway I need to know how anxiety provocing it is to look after a baby. Is it hard to sleep at night knowing all about cot death and all that…..what about when they get sick and stuff? Does the sleep deprivation send you on a really negative spiral?Hmmm I guess I’ll find out for myself one day, thanks S
