Friday has seemingly seamlessly merged into Saturday
(try saying that after a gin and tonic or two), and
I'd better get on with my weekly happy-list
before Saturday turns into Sunday!
First up for a mention is
online and other (I'm not going to say 'real' because
that would be like online friends aren't real
and we all know that isn't true).
Lunch with my old friend Dawn on Thursday.
We last saw each other before the summer holidays
so we had a lot of 'life' to catch up on.
Drinks with my friend Louise last night.
She's going through quite a rough time at the mo,
and I do wish I could wave the magic wand for her.
We still found lots to giggle about though,
mainly because she's as mad as a box of frogs!
In a good way;o)
I received a postcard this week from my friend Lenna,
who is also going through an emotional wringer.
She extended an invitation for me to visit her in
Florida, and you know what,
one of these days I might just do that!
The ebay fairy has been mighty busy and
through my letter box this week plopped
as well as it being the time of the month for the new
which this month came with a kit to make the sweetest
Mail Art from Sue Emmerson arrived this week too.
The has the theme of 'Beginning with the letter K'.
Kookaburra, kite, kangaroo, kitten, kettle, koala etc
I think she's just about cornered the 'k' market!
Thank you, Sue!
DS Luke's finger is recovering from his first lesson with
the barbering scissors.
The VERY SHARP barbering scissors!
It was a deep snip, there was lots of blood
and I've cleaned out Boots' stock of bandages
It probably should have had a stitch or two,
but hey, he's a MAN!
(I think he's got a new found respect for scissors).
DD Hope and I went to a sweet exhibition today,
which was held at an equine veterinary practice
in Forest Row.
The theme was, perhaps unsurprisingly, horses.
Please click on the name of each artist
to go to their websites.
There was sepia photography by
who we were lucky enough to meet.
She so beautifully captures the special bond
between a horse and owner.
Please go and visit her website,
her photographs are so beautiful.
There were gorgeous charcoal pictures by
in which the strength and movement of these magnificent
creatures was cleverly portrayed.
We really liked the equine portraits
by Judy Goodman
in which she particularly captures
"key moments of
sporting life from the race track to the stable setting".
Both Hope and I were very taken with the
by Linden Hamilton.
we loved the wood sculptures by
This unicorn head was Hope's favourite.
Can you make out this little foal?
Sorry, the sun was too bright for my silly little camera,
but this driftwood fella was so gorgeous.
Hope and I really enjoyed looking at the beautiful artwork
and it was all for a good cause as entry was free
but donations were requested for
Riding for the Disabled.
Well I think I've kept you quite long enough.
I'll be posting this with Virginia, Rocking Queen,
and then it's time for a nice cup of tea.
Have a great weekend!
