Well I do hope you all had a very nice Christmas (Xmas). I know that I did. Lovely time with the family, but sadly for the world of cartoons not much time to draw in-between peeling sprouts and being a busy mother of two.

They are still in the wrapper with the giant Toblarone (Chocolate) bar, but I intend to put them to good use very soon.
