onwards and upwards


Bit of a gap there..........technical issues, and general fatigue.

On a more positive note, a good amount of work done at the studio, including a couple of commissioned pieces. Always nice to get paid !

The leaves are all off the trees here, and the rain is currently lashing the windows. Not easy to get out and paint in such conditions. I'm resigned to sitting by the fire and burbling away on the laptop.
Thinking back over the last week or two, I realise that for the first time in several years, we didn't do anything much for Halloween, or Bonfire Night. Just another sign that the kids are getting a bit older, where does the time go ?

Christmas soon........I'm thinking traditional, you know, a walnut and a spinning top for the kids, maybe a single posh chocolate for herself.............

We can only admire the Mr Micawber in you (although it is usually well disguised ...)

Dear boy, I think this year might be the one where we all make presents for our loved ones. From wood. And leaves.

And twigs. And petals. I can supply the glue.

And Gin.......?

The tonic must be your responsibility .... walrus is less than reliable when it comes to mixers.
