Another week has flown by, there have been yet more storms – why did ours in the UK get the name Brian? – more Brexit and the increasing #MeToo campaign. In our house we saw the end of the German exchange as our lovely girl and her friends’ student partners returned home. Absolutely exhausted! The girls are now coming down off a high and the start of half term is a bit of an anticlimax, particularly with mock exams looming.
Our girl is studying art – you probably know already as this proud mum has posted pictures, much to the disgust of my girl – and has a portfolio to work on and also a sketchbook for an interview. The house is destined to filled with paints, charcoals, paper and panic! I am doing something this week that I don’t normally, but I’d like to shamelessly introduce you to some other talented youngsters – the triplet daughters of an old school friend.
They have been featured on Sky Landscape Artist of the Year, and are currently working with the UK’s National Trust on the Scotney Old Castle campaign. Whilst not strictly a blog post, I have included both their website and the campaign site as I strongly believe we should support and nurture young talent – I am not asking you to donate but to take a peek, maybe follow them on Facebook and Instagram…..
The other posts are all fantastic and range from an article that fits with the #MeToo campaign but stems from a personal story of surviving from Illness to Wellness, to acupuncture at My Migraine Life to social well being from a new blog to me Little Adventures NZ. There are a couple here that are particularly great reads for you ladies – I love the look at Envy on Wendy Fairy Art – and all you mums and dads must read “My Husband Doesn’t Help” from the Coffee Mom. It is not what you think it is!!! Add in some OCD at The Thyroid Damsel and what more diversity could you want?!
So it is that time to grab a cuppa, turn your mobile to silent and spoil yourself with some great reads. Please comment, share and follow some of these lovely people if you enjoy their work.
Have a great week,
