And it's happened again!

I dutifully re-posted the letter I received the other day and it arrived in the post again this morning. Can no-one read at Royal Mail?

What's happened to Royal Mail?

I received this in the post today. The only part of this that relates in any way with my address is 86 High Street. It's even the wrong country and the postcode is nothing like my postcode. How could they get this so wrong?

Steni Vala, Alonissos island


Sailing in the Sporades

I've come back from a wonderful sailing holiday with two of my sons, Hugo and Xavier. The last time I went sailing there were numerous family members to tie ropes and pull up anchors, however this time I needed to carry out more roles than ship's cook, bottle-washer and artist, so I wasn't able to finish filling my Greek island sketchbook as I'd hoped I might. So it looks like I'll have to go back to Greece some time again to finish off the last few spreads. Nonetheless I'm pleased I managed these sketches and it was only because my boys did such a fantastic job running the boat.

En route to birthday treat

These are sketches on the train on the way to join Flo for a wonderful evening seeing Mark Thomas at the Tricycle Theatre. Highlight of the evening when he berated someone for having their phone on. "Your phone shines a light that interferes with my performance and distracts the audience. Your behaviour is selfish and is the behaviour of someone who doesn't care about other people and who feels entitled and there's only one word to describe it...
