And not much of this:

100_1769My wonderful son, Ben, perhaps fearing that I’m going to abandon my easel altogether in favour of days out with grandchildren or husband or kids, or in favour of the hours I spend wandering around museums and art galleries, or in favour of sitting in restaurants with my head buried in foreign language books, has made me a website as a surprise present.

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.

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.

Scruffy is the new smart.

Standard

Let me tell you about my new pink boots. Firstly, I ought to explain why they’re such a big deal. It’s because I’m a scruff. No two ways about it. I prefer to wear the kind of clothes that most people shove in the bottom of their wardrobe to be used only for decorating or D.I.Y. All of my clothes, even my coats, come from charity shops because I like a bargain. For the same price I’d pay in a normal shop for one jumper, I can buy 6 or 7 in a charity shop. Needless to say, I’m not a slave to fashion. The same applies to jeans and trousers. The pair I have on in the photo were £1.99 from Age UK. See; a bargain. However, I don’t like walking in someone else’s shoes, so to speak, and always buy new ones. If they cost more than £15.00, I grumble but I buy. If they cost more than £20.00, I look shocked and horrified and put them back on the shelf. My new pink boots cost £55.00. Yes, £55.00. I feel as if I should keep them in a glass trophy case when I’m not wearing them. My own bank account didn’t suffer the loss I’m happy to say. My husband’s did. He saw me gazing longingly at them in a shoe shop and insisted I had them. I put up a fight of course. It was a bit of a half hearted one though because I really, really wanted them. Thank you John. So here they are, my new pink Timberland £55.00 boots. Even the laces are groovy.

 

Yep; still feeling all nautical. Looks like it’s in for the week. Teedlee Pom Pom.

It’s definitely not pointillism

Standard

The blank piece of paper I put on the easel was supposed to turn into a pointillism painting. Instead, in typical Claire-is-far-too-easily-distracted fashion, it turned into this. As you can see, I’m feeling all nautical today. Got a hunch I’ll be feeling all nautical tomorrow too.
