More popular than Santa

Standard

My daughter asked her two little sons who was coming at Christmas, meaning Santa, and instead they chorused “Nana”.
Being Nana is the best.

Notice how Doodle, my dog, is never far from my side. He managed to get in all 3 photos.

Time Off

Standard

To coincide with my husband’s 60th birthday, he took 16 days holiday. That meant 16 days holiday for me too. Today is the last of those 16 and I can’t believe it’s over already. We’ve seen loads and eaten loads. Having a big appetite, the highlight of a lot of places we visited, for me anyway, was the food. A particularly noteworthy meal was the stew and dumplings with generous portion of roast potatoes in the canteen of a former prisoner of war camp.

One of the things I love about having kids is that, no matter what we’re doing, we always have fun. This is me and my daughter sat in a sand pit with a coffee at Brymor Ice Cream Parlour in Wensleydale. The little redhead at my feet is my eldest grandchild, Dylan.

It’s our 30th wedding anniversary today. We celebrated it at the Cattlemen’s Association in Harrogate with a couple of T-bones that looked as though they should be in The Flintstones.

Dirty Palettes

Standard

Great sadness arrived in a box from my artists materials suppliers the other day: New palettes. For the past 6 years, I’ve been trading under the username “dirty_palettes” on eBay because, in all that time, I have never once cleaned them. But, dog hairs embedded in the thick layers upon layers of dried paint around their edges and a fair share of dust had begun to hinder my progress. As I can’t bring myself to throw them away, the palettes are to be hung on my studio wall, complete with dried paint, dog hair and dust, as a very happy memory.

The booboo

Standard

Remember how excited I got about using my newly acquired coloured inks? Glad I only used a small piece of paper to experiment because it turns out that I’m rubbish with them. I won’t scare you by posting the disasterous attempt but, I would like to say that I’m not giving up. A second attempt is definitely in the offing.

In the meanwhile, I have been busy with my paints:

“Grayson Street” By Claire Shotter

“Kettle Street” By Claire Shotter. For auction @  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/180884061149?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

 

I’m short. Don’t know if I’ve mentioned that before. Being short is hazardous and, by way of proof, here’s a photo of the injury I sustained reaching up to get the sugar down from the top shelf of the cupboard with a long handled soup ladel. It’s a bad booboo right? Worthy of stitches at the E.R. to be sure… and a splint and, may be, even a plaster cast. At the very least, it should be wrapped in a big bandage and my arm put in a sling. I mean, it almost bled.

My bravery obviously knows no bounds though because, instead, I simply said a naughty word and ran it under the tap.
