I hope you have had a great weekend, mine has been busy and interesting.
On Friday evening T and I went to see Alexi Sayle at the local art centre. Normally Alexi is a stand up comedian, but for this event he was doing a book reading. He was still funny and we both enjoyed the event.
Yesterday I did some voluntary work in the cemetery, I was cutting turf from around the kerbs of graves so my friend could record the inscriptions. We did that for a couple of hours and it was a pleasant way to spend the morning. Then I had a short walk into town to do some shopping and spent the rest of the afternoon working with a couple of friends in the Learning Centre in the Cemetery on Ryde Social Heritage Group‘s next project. As soon as one thing ends we have to start work on another. 🙂
Yesterday evening T and I spent a lovely time together, we had a nice meal and then sat up late watching films and talking. Unusually for me I stayed up very late and as a consequence today has been a bit of a wash-out. We both slept in late and have had a slow day. I did manage to get out to visit my parents this afternoon as it is their 63rd wedding anniversary today. Heard some good news, that my brother who lives in France will be visiting for a short time in October. That will be lovely for Mum and Dad.
The page above is the third illustration I did for Dr Amy Johnson‘s book Being Human. I am working really hard to try and absorb this message, which in my heart of hearts I know is true. There are two people in my life who I find to be really mean and obnoxious and occasionally I have to deal with them face to face. I find it difficult and up until now I don’t think I have handled the situation well. I am working on being kinder, more compassionate and more understanding of them and of myself.
Have a great week
