I had a very sleepless night on Saturday! At 4.30 a.m. I discovered an email in my spam (I shouldn’t look at my phone at that time, but I was getting increasingly restless!); it was from Bird Photographer of the Year requesting a write up and technical information on my two shortlisted images for the Harper Collins book. The email was dated 03 March, asking if they could be sent within 7 days. I felt sick! Fortunately I managed to get hold of a very nice man the on Sunday morning, who said it would be ok if I could do it straight away. I might have overreacted, but this means a lot to me.
I’ve been so busy with my projects that I’m wondering where I found the time to work at Ashridge (cliché!). I’ve started pilates and aqua aerobics and I’m swimming three miles a week. I’m also working hard on my next cartooning assignment as well as my photography. I’m planning to enrol on a basic drawing course. I think I could still learn a lot from it. For those of you who read my blog regularly I will try to write more often. When I started writing one in January 2008 I used to publish a daily entry; that was too much, but I think I’ll find it interesting in the future.
