Huge thanks to everyone who bought cakes, draw tickets, paintings, prints, cards, gave us donations or just wished us luck at Paul’s recent two day event at Studio 99. We raised around £500 for RNLI Plymouth!
Paul is continuing to teach over the summer period and do the accounts (always a hideous job for an Artist!) and paint when he can. We have been squeezing in mini half-day holidays here and there. We drive off to Plymouth Hoe or the beach in the van and have coffee or lunch or dinner and try and chill out for a while. We’ve seen some great sunsets. We’ve been a bit stressed recently for various reasons – nothing major, but lots of small niggles adding together.
The summer weather has been particularly unpredictable this year – the odd hot day but mostly nothing to write home about. The drizzle is relentless. My tomatoes are not ripening, but I have had a bumper crop of raspberries. Let’s hope September will have an Indian summer.
