So, I know up till now my Walkies series has been based on different eras in history and the fashions of the time. This week I'm deviating slightly as is my prerogative (where inspiration leads, you've got to follow!).
Those of you who've been reading my blog since at least February may recall my birthday trip to the Isle of Skye courtesy of my lovely husband - well he then framed one of my favourite photos from that trip and I keep it on my dressing table where I can see it as I'm getting ready every morning - it both cheers me up, as it was such a fantastic time, and depresses me because I'm not still there but rather am sitting there getting ready for another day of 9-5 drudgery!
This was the photo:
And it came to me yesterday when I saw it perched on the dressing table, that I hadn't yet included the West Highland Terrier in any of the Walkies ACEOs and, as is often the way, word association ensued - "Ack, look at our wee dogs there, wee dotes...they loved Skye....I loved Skye...that day up the Quairaing was brilliant....I miss hill walking (even thought I'm not so keen on the hill part on the way UP...hmmm, hill walking, hill walkies...ding!"
I guess I'll keep on doing the Walkies series as long as:
a) eras/situations inspire me;
b) I draw every breed of dog known to man; and
c) I can keep on coming up with cheesy titles for the blog posts!!
