Introducing myself via a garden

Yesterday I went for my usual walk on the outskirts of my village, summer or winter, spring, or autumn, I enjoy the walk, it has a few houses, lots of trees, fields, and dappled sunshine at this time of year in this glorious hot summer sunshine. As I walked past one of the houses there […]

A lovely new word

I read a lot of books, its a joy to get lost in the story in a book, and I have a few favourite authors whose books I know I will always enjoy. Recently my husband recommended I read the Spike Milligan war books, since he’d read them some years ago and had enjoyed them. […]

Remember me?

Remember me?

This week I had an email from someone whose name I didn’t recognise who explained that a few years ago I did a pencil sketch of his sisters house in Repton for him as a gift and he saw the drawing recently in her house and he is soon moving to a new house in […]

No canvas …or is there……..

Before I went on holiday I was asked to do a peacock painting in acrylics on canvas for a client. The client wanted a large canvas and I was able to findone with the art suppliers company I usually use for canvases, although I was told by them that they hadn’t got the canvas in […]

France again at last

There was an enormous amount of paperwork to do before we went, but finally we were able to get on the ferry at Newhaven for the four hour crossing to Dieppe. There were about a quarter the amount of people on the ferry than would normally be there. But I was just so happy to […]

Celebrating Three peacocks…

Celebrating Three peacocks…

A few weeks ago on the Repton Facebook page (that I still follow even though I live in Kent now, as I was brought up in Repton and I have very fond memories of the place) there was a few photos of the white peacock that had been wandering around the village and admired as […]
