So...Resurrected and Rebooted

Good luck with the parking charge Rb - what a flippin' hassle - you could really do without that 


My kettle's sort of off white - but it has a rather smart textured surface and it's very clean and shiny today 'cos it's been descaled and polished   we paid more for it than we used to pay for kettles, but it's been worth it - it seems as if it's lasted  for years

I used to love doing those drawings Logan 


And I was the one who dissected the all the bullocks' eyes when all the others were fainting all over the biology lab floor 


And of course, the botanical drawings too .......

I celebrated my 40th in a basement with a load of art students 


Wonky did her degree as a grown up too - she'd been so ill through her teens and twenties (ME) but in her 30s she got herself into Uni - graduated in July 2012 and got married on 4th August, right in the middle of the London 'lympics.

MINE LOOKED LIKE A CROSS BETWEEN MRS DOUBTFIRE AND HYACANTH BOUQUET 


I LEFT SCHOOL STRAIGHT AFTER 'O'LEVELS - PARENTS PUT ME ONTO A SHORT SECRETARIAL COURSE AND I JUST GOT ON WITH EARNING A LIVING, GETTING MARRIED AND RAISING A FAMILY.  


YEARS LATER WHEN WONKY AND HER BROTHER WERE GROWN, I TOOK MY PORTFOLIO ALONG AND GOT MYSELF INTO ART SCHOOL AND PUT MYSELF THROUGH MY DEGREES IN MY 40S.    MANAGED TO PICK UP AN ART STUDENT FOR MYSELF ALONG THE WAY

I USED TO TOY WITH THE IDEA OF FRAMING THEM AND HANGING THEM IN THE DOWNSTAIRS LOO TO MAKE A STATEMENT ABOUT THEIR VALUE.


BUT THEN IT OCCURRED TO ME THAT MANY PEOPLE WOULDN'T SEE IT AS AN EXERCISE IN IRONY. THEY WOULD JUST THINK THAT I WAS A BRAGGING B*****D.


See original post

 TO MAKE AN EXERCISE IN IRONY YOU'D HAVE TO TAKE THEM OUT OF THE FRAMES AND HANG THEM ON A NAIL 


BUT THAT WOULD BE A SHAME ((HUGS)) - WHATEVER ELSE THEY REPRESENT THEY SHOW HARD WORK AND DETERMINATION, AND A REBUKE TO AWFUL UNKIND HEADTEACHERS WHEREVER THEY MAY BE

Downstairs all gleaming and sparkling now   


The band of horrid weather promised for this afternoon appears to be on it's way; the sky is dark and the wind's getting up.  Hope Wonky's got her thermals on.  


On the brighter side ... I popped outside and checked the veg patch ... the broad beans sown at the end of October have made an appearance   


NDN's younger cat has given the seedbed a bit of attention   but I think he's missed the beans
