Yay! The summer holiday has arrived. No more school for nearly eight weeks! I can now switch my brain from 'art department' mode to 'author/illustrator' mode. In fact, I did it before I'd even left the school grounds and began planning the next chapter of book 4 while driving home. I hope the weather gets a bit better soon 'cause this soggy stuff doesn't feel at all like 'hols', does it? Ick! My damp trainers are where my turquoise flip-flops should be and there's a wet brolly in the hallway instead of a beach umbrella. I might put away that factor 50 sunblock. So much for a sizzling summer.
