I'm starting to wonder if Wolf2 or Wolf 3 (or whatever number (s)he is) might be one of our old 'friends' who is missing the attention they used to get on the forum. We've had some particularly unpleasant stirrers on here in the past.

It's a shame that some newer members might actually waste their valuable time trying to help this idiot.

Amazing story DD - you are a true Phoenix.

You only bought the place a few weeks ago - I cannot believe how much you've achieved in such a short space of time. Well done you and Charlie and your team of builders & helpers.

BL - enjoy lunch at DD's place. You could do a nice Trip Advisor review for her

I didn't see the programme about Kieran Williamson last year so I don't know if this was the same one - I got the impression it was a new programme.

This one is called "Mini Monet Millionaire" and showed him painting in the field, setting up for a new exhibition and talking about the new directions he is pursuing in his work. He seems to be doing more with figures and portraiture. I loved his depiction of the Port Isaac crab dressers.

Incredible talent. You'll be able to watch it on iPlayer next week

So pleased you all had a good day - I trust my cake was either chocolate or coffee & walnut

Hope you all make it home safely (some of you have had a really long day).

Really looking forward to seeing some photos - hope the tech problems on the site are fixed tomorrow

Evening - exhausted after watching the Nadal match - some truly excellent tennis. There have been some very good matches so far.

Dove - just watching the local programme which was on tonight about teenage artist Kieran Williamson. Lovely family and very enjoyable programme - maybe on iPlayer if you're interested.

Imagine earning £2 million pounds through painting by the age of 14...

That sounds like a long old trip Liri

Hope you and everybody else have a truly "Grand Day Out"

All the East Anglian contingent trips I've been on have been great fun - and it's so good to actually meet people who already feel like old friends.

Have a great time - lunch, coffee and cakes are definitely part of the experience.

(The odd pint of beer / glass of wine / G&T doesn't go amiss either)

I'm soooo busy... Quick pop-in to get the notifications.

Runny / Joyce - somebody else was having problems sending / receiving PM's (Lily P on Forkers perhaps?) so maybe there are some gremlins at work. Failing that it might be worth checking that email addresses etc are still correct in your settings. 

Must crack on...
