Possibly the last of the coronation mug paintings as the olympics come to an end along with the patriotic fervour. I am off to Cumbria for the next week so no posts unless I can get access to some wifi, we’ll have to see. The object of the trip, apart from seeing family, is for my daughter , my husband and my octogenarian mother-in-law to climb Hellvelyn to raise funds for a school trip/donation to a charity in South Africa. I shall be taking my life in my own hands by sitting at the bottom with a sketchbook and flask. Sometimes I just don’t know where my boundless energy comes from.
