Happy Mother’s Day! #WeekendCoffeeShare 3


If we were having coffee, I think I’d have a smoothie because I’ve already reached my caffeine limit for today! I needed it to get me through the mountain of cleaning.
Today is Mother’s Day, so if you’re a mum, I hope you’re having a lovely day. My mum, my daughter and I celebrated it yesterday, we went shopping and had lunch together, it was really lovely. I made a comic for my Mum’s card and had it printed on a mug too. it looked so cool! I was so happy with the way it turned out, and my Mum really loved it.


I’ve had a busy week, I’ve been working hard and making the effort to go outside. I usually get a really high amount of anxiety whenever I have to go anywhere, so I’m trying to work through it. I have been quite successful actually, and am really quite proud of myself. I have been attending art classes on a Wednesday, and actually, whilst drawing, I totally forgot I was in a strange place and felt really comfortable in the situation. This hasn’t happened to me before! All the people there seemed lovely, and I ended up sketching a daffodil and an eye.

My little one has also been arty this week. On Friday we had an art and craft night, and she painted Jupiter and two cute little astronauts. When she’s finished it, I’ll have to show you, it’s so awesome! She’s so talented! She bought me a lovely card for Mother’s Day, and a little teddy ornament and she also made me two cards in school.

I started playing Dragon Age: Inquisition this week. So far, I’m really enjoying it, and I can’t wait to do some Dragon Age art. I called my character Shepard (Because of Mass Effect), and made her look pretty Shepard-like. I’m convinced Bioware are geniuses. There is not another game developer out there that make stories that I get so invested in. V from Verbal Spew was one of the people that convinced me to get it. She’s recently written a post about Dragon Age, and I highly recommend you read it and give her a follow if you aren’t already! Her blog is awesome!

I’m really enjoying getting back into The Walking Dead. I just hate waiting a whole week to watch another episode. It’s definitely my favourite TV series. I’ve also been binge watching Orphan Black, I’ve seen the episodes before, but it’s amazing what you pick up when you binge watch, and I’m all about the detail!

I’m STILL working on that art piece I was talking about last week, but what with Mother’s Day I made drawing my Mum’s card the priority.
Anyway, I have so much ironing to do, school uniforms and the like, so I’d better get back to it. I hope you’re having an awesome weekend, and I hope you have a great Mother’s Day.

  1. Ooh, Dragon Age art! I’m so glad you’re enjoying it. The beginning can be a bit of a slog (I stayed in The Hinterlands for HOURS, without realising you’re supposed to actually leave and return), but when things kick off, the game gets awesome. I’m really looking forward to hearing what choices you make. I’m living vicariously through your DA experience now, because mine is over. 😀

    Happy Mother’s Day, my lovely. And thank you for the shout-out.

    PS Waiting a week for TWD eps is no fun. I have a sneaking suspicion though that the 90 min finale is going to be gooood.


    • Ahhh yeah I’ve spent ages in the hinterlands, I was scared the missions would disappear if I progressed the story too much, although I’m beginning to feel under-levelled with some of them… Red skulls everywhere oh and I accidentally stumbled upon the dragon who burnt me and my crew dead in one second hahaha.
      I’m playing pretty “paragon” right now, and really quite happy that I’m so invested, it’s helping with my mass effect withdrawals!
      🙂 xx

      • I thought the same thing too! The missions won’t disappear though, and some of those rifts in The Hinterlands you won’t be able to close until much later when you return. I spent AGES at the rift at the waterfall (near the farm) trying to close it. I was probably only level 7 (maybe?) at the time, way too under-levelled. Ah, The Hinterlands dragon is a good one. I got fried a couple of times too while trying to find those bloody shards. I came back at Level 15 and completely murdered it, mwahaha.

        I was very paragon too, though I enjoyed being conflicted about the “Herald of Andraste” thing. So weird!

      • Ahh that’s great to know about the non disappearing missions.
        Haha that’s exactly what I was doing, trying to close the rift at level 6, and that weird little purple thing kept kicking my butt! I was trying to get to one of the watch towers for the horsey man.
        I’m always denying that I’m the herald to my close acquaintances but I say I am the herald when I want something. Loving the new digs in Skyhold!

  2. Happy Mothers Day! Thanks for the coffee


  3. Happy Mother’s Day! I got seriously worried for a second that I’d forgotten Mother’s Day, but then I remembered you were in the UK. Every year I forget that we recognize Mother’s Day at different times and every year I have a little fright that I’d forgotten. My Mama likes any and every celebration so we have to stay on top of these things. 🙂

    Lovely drawings. Thanks for the coffee.


  4. That card is awesome, and so are the drawings!

    I have social anxiety as well, and I find it tricky to go new places sometimes. It’s usually worth it, though, so I just keep reminding myself of that. 🙂


  5. Happy Mother’s Day. I had a lovely day with my family; there was hardly any drama – which is a miracle! I love the art work, and that you made such a personal gift for your mum.

    Have a great week ahead and enjoy your current project, now you have time to concentrate on it 🙂


  6. I like the Mother’s Day card graphic you made. Very special. It sounds like you had a good celebration!


  7. One of these days I’ll be able to draw and eye that looks that amazing… One of these days. 🙂


    • If I can, you can! It’s just lots of practise, I used to be rubbish at art, but I was just determined to get good at it because art is so fun! I’ve probably drawn like 100 eyes now lol.

      • I’m still working on my flowers, but trust me, I’ll get there. 🙂 I actually did this weird little disjointed person thing the other night. I haven’t decided yet if I’ll share it or not.


  8. Your art is absolutely stunning! Love the heart you put into. I can really feel the emotion behind your pieces. Great job!
