I seem to have missed the month of July completely….. it has just flown by.
I have been trying to cram in as much as possible before the school holidays started and we have been away on holiday to the Lakes.
I’m busy processing the holiday pic’s and I’ll post them soon.
We spent one afternoon in Grasmere – I took the boys on a short walk to see Glenthorne – do you remember I was here in February with members of CQGB? Wonderful place for a retreat. I’m pleased to say I’ve arranged another retreat in November 2012 with another group of friends.
DS noticed that opposite Glenthorne is Thimble Hall – made me chuckle.
I had to show you this – one of the best portraits from the holiday.
And now its the long summer holidays – do you remember how they used to seem to last forever? And how it was always hot? Well I guess I grew up in the 1970’s and ‘76 was a “heatwave” year. I’d be 7 years old then – summer would have seemed endless.
My gorgeous DS has progressed from intricate pencil drawings to spray painting Nerf Blasters! I think he looks very “Amish” in the long blouse that I use as a painting smock.
Well yes, there is a limited amount of work in progress…
Mainly on a piece for the EG exhibition “Mining a Golden Seam”
Here’s a hint of what’s to come;
