After sitting on the beach, I felt inspired to pick up my coloured pencils and draw. It's been a full day, in which I received a surprise gift from my friend Anne, sent all the way from England.
Two years ago I admired her turquoise jacket and now, after much hunting, she's found one for me in Marks and Spencer's. She wrapped it in beautiful paper and sent it off with a note to say 'a surprise is always nice to have.' How fortunate I feel, to have such a good friend, and to be soaking up the late autumn sun in a beautiful place.
