My daughter posted some new photos on Facebook yesterday. My second thought was "They're nice photos" but my first thought was "Oh good, I've got some new photos to work with".
Sketch 23 of my 28 days of sketches - done!
My daughter's had a rough few months and is only gradually starting to get back to her normal self. Her relationship broke up so she is living back home with us (which is why Coco is a permanent fixture now!) and it's been tough adjusting to things. Hard to discover that the person you thought you would be spending the rest of your life with turns out not to be the person you thought he was. But if there is a silver lining to be found, a couple of her close friends have found themselves in exactly the same boat this summer and there is comfort in knowing you are not alone. Her friends have been amazing. They have really rallied round and supported her in ways that parents can't. They have made sure that there are things to do and places to go and she has not sat at home moping at weekends. She's been to three music festivals, two of which were ankle deep in mud and the third glorious hot sunshine. This layout celebrates just how important your close girlfriends are in your life.
