Wednesday 16 April 2014: Sculptor at work...
1510/365: ... Nick's been a busy bunny. He's been in his shed... sorry... studio all day, working on a sculpture that has to be finished in the next few weeks. Oh, and it started out as the shed which he said he was tidying... and now he only ever refers to is at his studio. Somewhere along the line, I lost a shed and he gained a studio!
Anyway, he's been busy. I don't think people realise what a lot of work goes into a sculpture. People can be so massively dismissive about art. They see the final piece and accept or dismiss it as seen. They don't see the winding, twisting path to get to that piece that artists go through.
While he's been busy, I've been with the monkeys. This morning I went for a run with Moo coming along on her bike. It was such a nice sparkly morning. I ran around the lake, Moo daydream dawdled on her bike - which meant she was happy. We got home, I showered, then the monkeys drew up a list of everything they wanted for a picnic lunch. They basically wanted veg samosas, houmous and apple juice! A weird but, apparently, delicious concoction!!
They picnicked outside, I ate inside (damn sun allergy!)... but everyone was happy because it was just so nice weather-wise today and the veranda is a lovely sun trap to sit in to eat your lunch! This afternoon I was brave and went clothes shopping (which is generally a nightmare for me!)... and bought myself a couple of dresses and a skirt. Good grief!
Other than making dinner, the rest of the day was filled with going to the park and playing boules. Fizz being massively competitive... and Moo not. Him losing... her discovering a hidden talent for boules and winning just about every game! Whoops!
PS Really should be in bed...
