This photo shows my morning ritual. I wake up, make coffee,  check my mail. Today I received my moleskine sketchbooks from the book depository. Thank you my friends who suggested that I shop online! After flaffing around, I settle down and I sketch. Take a photo of it, post it on here. When I’m done I go out and I read on the tube to make the journey faster! I’m currently reading silk for the feed dogs by Jackie Mallon.
Et voila, my morning ritual done.
Have a lovely day everyone xx
