Still Unwell…



I’m still struggling with this chest infection.  At least half term is coming up next week which should give me a chance to get better without letting anyone down at school.

Doctors are still checking every orafice…

Common Land

I am settling in to my new home quite well now.  There is still quite a bit of work to do on the kitchen and some to do in the living room but every day I feel more at home.  One of the lovliest things about my new place is that it is two minutes walk from Latton Common.  In England we have common land in some places where traditionally you can graze animals and more recently people tend to walk dogs.    The common nearest to me is a beautiful wildish place with horses grazing on it.

I just can’t believe how lucky I am to have this wonderful place so close.  I’ve been taking my dog over there since we arrived and the colours change subtley throughout the day.  Spring is on the way here now so I expect that things will begin to change even more in the next few weeks.

I’ve been thinking again and again about getting back to the art.  Realistically I have to get my home sorted out first but I think as soon as the art cupboard is properly unpacked it will be opened and used again!
