What is it with April?

First of all thank you for your get well messages - I'm still feeling rather fuzzy, all right if I keep busy, but if I stop, I want to fall asleep.

I have managed to  get my calendar done for May although it still needs a bit of work.  When I looked at my pages for April last year I had marked it "the warmest April on record" and this year "wettest..." hold on to your hats next April, it may well be the windiest!

Monday was lovely, but I spent most of it asleep, really annoying. It's back to grey dullness today.


I did try to be a bit more spontaneous with May and sloshed some left-over dye over the page, however looking at it today, I'm not sure spontaneous is the right description. However a bit of fiddling about will soon add some character.  
I've a busy week coming up, so not sure how much creating is going to go on between naps.
Here's to a sunnier May,
Jill

Gorgeous colours Jill. Your purple background for April is lovely. I really need to use purple more... I do like it, it's just not a colour I gravitate to :D
Your May background is lovely too - the green over the lagoon blue looks so fresh. I like your choice of words... sloshed.... sounds good, looks good!

May looks brighter in your sketchbook than it does from my window this morning, I can tell you! ;O)

Hope you are on the mend, frustrating as it is, sleeping a day away, I am sure it is "Nature's way".

I look forward to seeing May develop and hope you are feeling much better now.

Hi Jill, love the colours on both, but May looks fine to me as it is :-)

Hi Jill. Sorry it's taken me so long to get round this month, but finally I am here! Still love to see your calendar pages, and isn't it great to have a record to look back on like that?
