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.

Today they started to build all the spaces inside the studios ready for our degree show. I did not go in myself as when it comes to moving and building heavy things I am about as much use as a wicker canoe.

My research portfolio has been printed and its a respectable looking book. As I suffer from fibromyalgia which has a list of ailments as long as your arm, I take full advantage of fine weather. This has nothing to do with me being cold blooded, as described by my ungrateful sprogs. As long as the sun is shining I am outside getting as much vitamin S as possible. I even get to read books that have nothing to do with Art ? imagine the luxury, while my long suffering partner planted the new flowers I got my medicinal quoter of fiction and rays. I can recommend it, whats the sense in stressing about every thing? itl all work out in the end, just get me another Margareta and turn me over when im done .
