It is still hot and sunny…really I know it’s the U.K but I am honestly not making this up. Check the news, i am still a little stunned myself, don’t want to speak to soon though as I may jinx it. I love the sunshine, its makes everything look much nicer. Even Newport looks reasonable and that is a stretch believe me.
I was going to write about the 9 hours I spent at the hospital with my pregnant daughter yesterday. I was frazzled and cross when I got home. You know what though? I wont be grumpy today as the sun has helped me chill. Tomorrow i will be finishing my space for the exhibition and actually hanging my paintings. I must confess i am a little nervous, I have no back up ! what if they hate my work???
On a lighter note people I had a b.b.q with my family today in the garden in the sun, it was bliss and my boy Blue got a share of all the meats bones. I am posting his mug shot so you can see how beautiful he is.

I allowed myself an evening away from all this uni work and went to the pub with good friends.Still drunk until at least lunch time, 3 failed attempts to get out of bed, and ultimately gave in to lazyitis. Read a book that had no artistic content or historical facts but did have nice easy words in it such as < and,< if< when etc.

not in the least taxing and all together noneducational,  ate some fudge drank 4 pints of squash and lay about in different parts of the house. Tomorrow I shall resume normal service.
