More popular than Santa


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.







Putting on make-up is boring so I never wear it. For our eldest grandson’s fifth birthday, however, I was given a make-over:


And so was his little brother:


The Birthday Boy, Dylan:


Everybody needs a time-out right?


So I’m reading my favourite book again: “Raise The Titanic” by Clive Cussler. It’s too embarrassing to say how many times I must have read it over the past 21 years. This time though, I have combined it with my favourite place; Spa Gardens. Off I go with my book, my glasses and a bit of change for a coffee and I sit in the little cafe there sipping and reading. No dog to wave toys to be thrown and no easel to catch my eye and remind me that I should be working. A guilty pleasure that is well worth the mile long walk to get there.

My semi folk art paintings aren’t quite going according to plan. The first one I did looked wholly like folk art and the other not like folk art at all.

This is Doodle being confused. The toy cow has a musical bum. Every time he bites it, a tune plays and poor Doodle can’t work out where the sound is coming from.
