You Asked, I Answered | Blogmas Day Two

I have asked you on Instagram to ask me some questions! If you haven’t been able to take part in that then make sure that you are following @kittyjadeonline so you can participate next time. You asked me some questions, so I will answer. I didn’t get as many as I’d like to get but there’s certainly some long answers. A Q and A is something that always pops up around Christmas and I love to read them. (sorry for the lack of questions but I didn’t want to do what I did last year – write questions for myself to answer as if they were coming from you!)

This is basic colouring page that I decided to zentangle all over!

Why are you called Kitty Jade?

This question is from one of my friends that I know and have contact with in real life, and I don’t often speak about this to them! But why am I called Kitty Jade? Let’s start with the first word ‘Kitty’ – this is a nickname that my mum often calls me by as my full name is Catherine (so Kitty is derrived from this word). I do love my Christian name but when I first began blogging in 2017 I wanted to stay as anonymous as possible. Which now I have ditched.

The second word in this name ‘Jade’. I don’t really know where this came from but it somehow sounded right. When I think about it jade is a lovely colour and my middle name ‘jane’ is only one letter away. What do you think about Kitty Jade? Do you just take in in your stride that that’s my blog name or have you ever though about it?

Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow | How Bad Are Your’s?

Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow: Tag

What does this remind you of? To me it reminds me how lucky I am to have those days. In those days I have smiled so much, met people I have never seen before, greeted family I haven’t seen since earlier this year. And as I look back at the photos I grin, then I yawn… and I finally thank.

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.

What does this remind you of? To me it reminds me how lucky I am to have those days. In those days I have smiled so much, met people I have never seen before, greeted family I haven’t seen since earlier this year. And as I look back at the photos I grin, then I yawn… and I finally thank.

Yesterday I was at home mostly all day. My brother and I’s friends went up to a nearby wood – with to many Nerf guns for our own good and had a Nerf War. My dad taught us things he did when he was an air cadet, as I sweated myself out because I was wearing dungarees in 24 degree heat. In the rest of the afternoon I took all the clothes from my old wardrobe into the new (it was set up that morning), watched Doctor Who and drew like nobody’s buisness. I’ll show you the page of sketches:

Today I am writing blog posts, for today and Friday. After this I will practise my Cello thoroughly as I have been on camp and then holiday so everything I’ve learnt this year is slacking. I’m meant to be ‘ready for my Grade One’ at the end of these holidays… 

But today I am going shopping with my best friend (who lives away and I have not seen her since 6ish weeks ago). There will be photos and laughter and trying on ridiculous clothes…! I can’t wait.

Tomorrow I have nothing planned. Tomorrow I will be at home sketching and hopefully writing. It will be a chill day, I’m thinking. I will do my best to read all of your recent blog posts and set my blog up and running again. It’s been at the back of my mind at the minute.
