Coffee and Comics #WeekendCoffeeShare 2.

coffee2If we were having coffee, I’d ask for the biggest size there. I’m going to need it! My favourite coffee is a gingerbread latte, tastes so good!

If we were having coffee, I’d talk about how I had parents evening this week at my daughter’s school. Her teacher is pretty impressed with my little one’s work. She’s doing so well at school, I feel like I’m bursting with pride, it’s hard to not talk about my little one, but she is my everything. I have some handwriting of hers to show you, all of her school books look like this, so neat and tidy, my handwriting looks childish in comparison! Oh and by the way, her handwriting is in Welsh.

handwritingI’d also tell you about my week. I’ve mostly been drawing this week, I really wanted to post more often on my blog but I’m still struggling to draw fast enough. I’ve been working on one of my drawings for a whole week and haven’t finished yet. I only get one or two hours a day to do it though, what with being a mum and other responsibilities. However, I have a preview of my draw for you.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I think I’ve realised that I’m supposed to be single. Everyone usually laughs when I say this but, the more I think about it, the more I think it’s very true. That just might be because I’m very recently single, but relationships, even good ones, make me crazy, for real, I have mental health problems and they get worse when I’m in a relationship. Lately, I’ve had a lot of time to think about things, and I think it’s because I neglect myself when I’m in a relationship. When I’m single, my little one comes first as she does when I’m in a relationship, but when single, when little one’s away with my mum, I take care of myself, I do things that make me happy, I put myself first and I even have dates with myself, but I stop doing that when I’m in a relationship. Putting myself first really helps me stay healthy in mind. Therefore, I am mostly fine about breaking up, and have been making an effort to do nice things for myself.

One of the fun things I’ve been doing this week, is getting back into Destiny, the game. I took a long break from it, mostly because it got boring doing the same things everyday, but I’ve really really missed playing with my friends, so I’ve been reconnecting with them, and had a really good time. My favourite character in Destiny is the Titan, mine’s at level 31, and I also have a Hunter at level 31. Here’s my titan that I drew on Affinity Designer for Mac.


Isn’t she cool?

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you about some exciting news I have! I’m going to open a shop at redbubble and sell some of my comics on shirts and all the other cool things they offer. I will be donating all proceeds from the shop to the b-eat charity. B-eat are an amazing charity and do a lot of work with sufferers of eating disorders. If the shop is successful, I’d consider producing my own line of products, but as I cannot predict if it will be a monetary success, I decided that I’d donate my test run to charity, then everyone wins!

Hopefully I’ll be able to finish my Mass Effect draw so I can post more this week, until then, I’ll see you next week for another coffee.
Have a lovely weekend, while I take another coffee to go.

  2. I love your blog! Have an awesome week 🙂


  3. I like that you have dates with yourself. That’s one thing I don’t do and I should. I’ve been divorced for almost 22 years and now that the kids are grown, I am supposed to have time for myself. However I don’t do anything outside my home unless it’s with my daughter and grandsons.

    I think I will make it a point to do something with/for myself outside the home at least once a month. I owe that to myself. Thank you for that idea.


    • It’s actually a lot of fun, and I really enjoy it, whether it’s going out for actual coffee and a cake (take an awesome book with you), shopping, or just buying a movie and a pizza (Or awesome food of your choice) for yourself at home. I also go out for walks and take pictures if it’s a nice day.
      Being nice to myself like this has helped me a lot with my wellbeing.
      Have fun! 🙂


  4. I love that you have dates with yourself. I do that sometimes, too. Usually it just means that I get to play something I really enjoy by myself, or watch half of a season of something while eating an Easter Egg (like I plan on doing tomorrow) or treating myself to a delicious lunch or a bottle of wine with a dinner I’ve been craving (beans on toast!). I think it’s a great idea, and I’m convinced that it’s good for me.

    I can’t wait to get one of your comic shirts.
