I don't normally have corn flakes for breakfast but I did this morning. For the first time in my life I poured chilled water over them instead of milk. I stood there thinking something wasn't quite right.

Is that what happens as you get older?

I painted for a few hours before taking the car to Toyota Grantham to have the brakes and accelerator pedal checked. This was as  a result of the World-wide recall.

This is what I painted yesterday (plus lots of touches on other paintings). It's one of Bev's poppies from last year. I painted it on boxed canvas ready to take to France.

This was my last fire or should I say the last fire I made. I hope to have many more. I love fires (take note Molly P that this one is outside ). I include it only because the painting reminded me of it.

I'm excited about the Villa v Chelsea game that my son has got tickets for. It's at Wembley, not at Villa Park as I thought. This means another trip to London tomorrow. How cool is that?

He's told me I'm not allowed to wear football gear...especially a red and white football shirt. I was planning to wear it as It's probably the only time I'll be able to have a part of Sunderland in a semi-final at Wembley. We'll also be in with the Chelsea supporters. I'm supporting Villa, so it will be very interesting.

I've just realised that Sunderland are in London too, playing West Ham. How freaky is that? If the game was 12:00 kick off, I could have seen both matches.

All the same, I'm really looking forward to it.

ps, Molly P...if you are reading this, I don't seem to be able to bring up any recent posts of yours. Are you out of action for a while? I miss reading your posts. I hope all is well.


  1. Why can't you wear footie gear for the match?

    As for Molly P - I'm sure she won't mind my telling you that she has decided to take a blogging break. See, Ken, if you'd stuck with Facebook you could have found that out - why did you not want to pursue it. Just think - you could see all my photos (gosh, Ken thinks, thank goodness I didn't subscribe then)

  2. Hi Julie
    Because he knew I'd wear a Sunderland shirt amongst Chelsea supporters.
    Facebook is just too much for me.
    Looks like Molly P is back.
