Woohoo I’ve just popped out and bought myself a new Wacom Inkling Pen (I’m such a gadget geek!)
It’s going to make my creative life so much easier as I can sketch pictures in a normal notepad then convert them to Photoshop files in an instant ……….. I just have to wait 3 hours for it to charge now!!
It’ll save so much time in the future and make my old(ish) scanner redundant but at least I now have something that fits in my pocket!

Here’s a link to a video of the ‘inklink pen’ if you have no idea what i’m talking about. I have a feeling my new gadget will replace my pencil and become another part of my body in no time!
I’ll keep you all posted and let you know how I get on!

I’ve just opened the front door to find a huge bunch of flowers and a teddy bear with a note around it’s neck … see below

Hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas and New Year

Hi all it’s Satan the Cat again. I just had to pop on and tell you some news.
Pixie’s Dad has been very pleased lately about sport (he is a big fan of sport). Cats are not usually very interested in sport (except mouse-catching) but even I got quite excited about it over the past few months so thought I’d write a blog.

In the summer we held the Olympics – which were absolutely brilliant! and the Paralympics – also absolutely brilliant! The best ever! (Mitt Romney came over here from the USA and was very rude, telling everyone that we could not organize it properly – well, Pixie’s Dad said that we organized the Olympics much better than he organized his election campaign). One of our team (Matt) was a Games Maker – we were all very proud of him and all of the Games Makers who did such an absolutely wonderful job. It all made me purr with delight!

The other day our rugby team beat the great All Blacks (apparently black is an excellent colour for rugby kit as well as for cats) and after a disappointing start our cricket team is doing well in India – Pixie’s Dad says good old Alistair Cook and the lads!

And what a big surprise about Arsenal losing on penalties last night to Bradford I watched most of the match from behind the sofa!

All this talk of sport is making me feel quite worn out, so I think it is time for a little nap.
