Lovely sunny cornwall.Not.

So dearest followers;we were promised pasties,we were promised cream teas and i m sure someone promised us lovely sunny walks on fabulous shining sands with sparkling seas.Wrong.We were in a giant cloud all the time.Quite atmospheric actually.Very Poldark.Got to be a bit creative on the beach though.Think it s technically known as flotsam and jetsom.

Things that are on my mind....

1.Getting rid of that horrible wardrobe in my bedroom.
2.Stop fannying around with eggcups.
3.Do some new bloody work to enter the Royal academy Summer Exhibition,get selected and then start world domination.
4.Possible knee replacement -this could cock up the world domination bit
5.Stop fantasising about lovely children s wildlife tv presenter Steve Backshall.He would never be interested in a married woman with only one good knee.
6.Decorating Ruby s room.We have the decals.We nearly have the paint and we ve had the clear out.
7.Sort out my Not on the High St page-for goodness sake it can t be that freakin difficult.
8.Kick the cat out of the bedroom at night-woke up thinking i was wearing a busby but it was the bloody cat on my head
9.Clean the car.Too horrible to even really consider.
10.Do more jigsaw puzzles-can you get ones with more than 1000 pieces ?
11.Get me hair done.It s an embarassment.


Do i keep mentioning Snap ?That s because it s brilliant.They put on a lovely private view last night.Thank you thank you.Here s my friend Dan checking his emails infront of some of the work.You are so busted Dan.

stirfry self portraits

If you look closely these are not just filthy plates.No,they are self portraits by my daughter and her friend Daisy.Crafted from left over stir fry.
Think this one s a bit Mick Hucknall.
