Momentous baby news!

First meeting: proud Grandad! James is a week old.

I have been so incredibly busy with exhibitions and garden landscaping over the past month, that I completely forgot to announce that I have become a grandmother to the most beautiful (I would say that wouldn't I?) baby boy called James.  Proud parents and baby are doing well; James is now one month old. They live in London, which seems such a long way a way when we are so busy, but they are coming for a brief visit later this month.

Both Pete and I are very proud!  I have surprised myself at how incredibly strong the emotional attachment to this little child already is; an artist friend who has grandchildren described it as almost "feral", and I know what she means!  We are looking forward to being part of this little one's life, watching him grow and develop.

Meanwhile, my drawing, "How Many Wondrous Days?"  is making its way to the new owners in London after the show at The White Room Gallery came down last week.  It was a pleasure to work with Issy Doney and I look forward to showing there again.  

I currently have a one of my large paintings and two smaller ones at Inspired By. . . Gallery at Danby visitors centre, North York Moors National Park, which will need to be collected again on 18th.  This means I have to hire a van and drive it myself; it's a long time since I did my Midas mini bus training and I am feeling a little aprehensive, but nothing ventured nothing gained!

We are off to see Robert Plant at Glastonbury Abbey this weekend, I can't wait!  George Ezra is supporting so it should be a good night.
