Any month when you spend 3/4 of it on holidays is bound to be a good one! I'm also strongly convinced that leaving on the 1st of the month is the greatest thing ever, it makes my organised/obsessed brain able to compartmentalise everything perfectly.
We spent a few days in Japan exploring Tokyo, visiting a cat cafe, the zoo, swan boating and just generally loving their politeness and kindness. A weekend in Stockholm (not long enough!) admiring the architecture, the parks and waterways. A few days in Copenhagen, eating waffles and living in a candy coloured dream, stockpiling ideas for our future home. A little over a week in Italy, popping in to Milan, Florence, Pisa and Rome. It already all feels so long ago... that's the trouble with holidays!
It's been back into it in a big way now that we're home, working on new ideas and trying to get on top of things before the silly season. I'm working on some new illustrations (that's Tokyo, making a brief appearance up there) and trying to fit sleep in somewhere as well! Hope your October was a fun one!
