So yeah, there's my funny, slightly depressing account of my week before Christmas.
I tried to get some of the good points in there too :)
I'm very, very thankful for all the wonderful people I have around me who I know will always be there to help me through anything life throws at me.
Some good points: I'm able to go to my Grandad's funeral next week so I'll get to spend time with my family which I didn;t think I'd be able to the Christmas. Also, Ralph has a clean house, lots and lots of treats and a snuggly new bed, so even if he only has a few days left in him they will be full of niceness.
Merry Christmas! xxxxxxxxx
UPDATE (26/12/11): Poor little Ralph died today. Hopefully he wasn't in too much pain when it happened. I buried him in a peppermint tea box, so at least it'll smell nice for him :,)
Here's an 8-page comic I made back in September. It's kind of cool to look back on now as I think I've improved a lot since then :) It's meant to be going on Top Shelf 2.0's website sometime, but I wanted you guys to see it before the new year, as it was done such a long time ago.
For you Leicester people, page 6 (with all the fish) is on display in the lovely Orange Tree if you'd like to see it in the 'flesh', and is available to buy for £90 (framed).
