Beginning of Summer.


Its the beginning of the Summer Holidays and the summer has actually arrived too. The Boys have been to stay with Gran and Grandpa, and Uncle Derek also went to stay too, so they had double fun! 

Mean while you might ask what we have been up to??  Well it was our 10th Wedding Anniversary ...Little Happy Dance.. Married at 21 to Daniel whom I have known since I was 15! Gosh I sound sappy but we are a good team and hope for more fun and laughs!

Well we went to Oxfordshire...

 I love the old buildings here so gorgeous.

Whilst out we also found some dinosaur foot prints in a museum.
Real Dino foot print, very hard to make it look as good in the flesh with the camera.

Not to mention the lovely dinner at Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons restaurant
 The gardens were fabulous and the smell of the flowers was fantastic, we had a very lovely dinner which was a lovely treat, back to saving the Penny's for the next one, as the dinner was so yummy!

My Space and our Foster Cat

I just thought I would share with you my work space at the moment. I'm currently working in watercolours and have just finished a very colourful cat painting.

Latest Piece - Colourful Cats

John holding my latest painting.
And this is our Foster Cat Chuck, whom we are looking after for the Mayhew Animal Home. He is very lovely cat and so loyal it's almost like having a dog around the house!

Here are a few pictures of him playing with the trains. If you are interested in Chuck click here
