#LifeDrawingLive

Spent a happy few hours colouring in this drawing, inspired by Sunday evening`s #LifeDrawingLive – the BBC art show presented by Joe Lycett. I never got the attraction of colouring books, in which the consumer takes pleasure out of colouring in drawings and patterns produced by someone else. But adding the colour to my ownContinue reading “#LifeDrawingLive”

Jumping Flea Beetles

So much for a lie-in. I`m wide awake at 6.40am, unable to return to my slumbers for fear of the multitudes of little menaces that might, during the night, have taken advantage of my absence to get stuck in. I can see them now, tucking into their third or fourth breakfast of the most tastyContinue reading “Jumping Flea Beetles”

Here’s Boris! – Silly-Savvy Art

Gouache and collage, on 50 X 40 inch canvas board, painted in response to public queries regarding the whereabouts of Boris. See link to The Express article, ‘Where’s Boris?’ After a thorough search of the country – permission granted by Dominic Cummings ( i.e. one has to act upon instinct when in fear for the welfareContinue reading “Here’s Boris! – Silly-Savvy Art”

Storm Diary 10 – Business

Storm Diary 10 – Business Sunday 15th March 2020 British. Business as usual. I check to see whether Non-Sick Sprog’s football match is still on. It is. We’re British, so why wouldn’t it be? Does a kids’ footy match count as a petri dish? Probably not. Lots of shouting and running around in the openContinue reading “Storm Diary 10 – Business”

Storm Diary 8 – Somethingness

Friday 13th March, 2020 Gave Non-Sick Sprogs lifts to school and work, avoiding all temptation to stop for a shop; have no wish to be coughed upon by the folk of Sudbury, whether they be the clientele of Aldi, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, or Waitrose! Returned home and washed my hands. Delivered Sick Sprog’s usual breakfast ofContinue reading “Storm Diary 8 – Somethingness”

Storm Diary 6 – Boris

Wednesday 11th March 2020 Sick Sprog now has a hacking cough. Popped into Aldi, whilst on the Non-Sick Sprog school run, and was pleased to be coughed over by two ladies in the queue. Made a mental note not to apply for that Cashier’s job. Just how many customers have already coughed over the poorContinue reading “Storm Diary 6 – Boris”

Storm Diary 5 – Protection

Tuesday 10th March, 2020 Yesterday evening, Sick Sprog decided he’d done with self-isolation, and landed in the lounge – coughing! Within seconds I found myself making good use of my protective face mask. Not sure they are intended for use in one’s own lounge, but so be it! Cold, flu or the dreaded coronavirus –Continue reading “Storm Diary 5 – Protection”

Silly Adventure – Bunny Soup in Chilton

What to do on a Sunday, when one has risen from their boudoir just in time to have missed morning service at the local spiritual establishment, and is in the company of God-fearing guests? Stand outside one’s clifftop cave with a box of orange-flavoured Matchmakers, and coax them out into the open. A winner everyContinue reading “Silly Adventure – Bunny Soup in Chilton”

Savvy Comedy – Running Order

It’s the usual start to this evening’s comedy gig, as the regular emcee, PJ, does his ‘With you in a minute – just sorting out the running order!” excuse, before he himself does a runner! (See you in the New Year, PJ!) Luckily, Josh Massen’s first up, and he’s full of compliments today, telling usContinue reading “Savvy Comedy – Running Order”
