Good morning, it is a beautiful day here in South London and the beginning of the summer holidays. The A level student – will have to change his name now – has been dog and house sitting for the last week, and the lovely girl is currently in her PJs painting…..she may be great at art, but she is so messy!! There are paints, pencils and pencil shavings everywhere – the beginning of my lounge turning into an art studio for 8 weeks.
She is currently working a matching picture of her grandparents’ other bull terrier (she didn’t like the first one that she started – pictured!!), has been asked to paint some canvases for the library in her old primary school (I think Harry Potter will figure!) and has a viking picture on the go for an instagram pal. Oh, not forgetting the self portrait for her course work and the scrap book entitled “Blood, Flesh & Bones”. She is taking some hideous pictures of family members hands, feet, elbows…..my dad told her she can’t afford his fee to strip off!!
As for me, well it has been a tricky week as you will have seen in my post about my benefits review, and I hate to complain about the lovely weather but it does send my circulation/POTS problems crazy. I did manage a night out in London with Duncan though! He told me we were going to a jazz concert in the Crypt of St Martins in the Field, Trafalgar Square – but when I saw some news feed that morning I had a sneaky feeling that I was actually being taken to the Formula One Live event in Trafalgar Square! I wasn’t, but it did mean that the whole area was extremely busy and this was my first time in the wheelchair in a very crowded place which was quite intimidating. The concert, with the wonderful Zena James, was fab though – a mixture of traditional and modern music jazzed up. You should hear Zena’s version of Rag & Bone Man’s “Human”!!
This week I have some posts on blogs that are all new to me and I have really enjoyed finding them. I hope that you all enjoy exploring some new reads too…..so sit back with your cuppa and take some R&R with a new blog post!
