I managed a lovely lie in this morning, despite sleeping on the floor! Hubby has man-flu, I have a cough that is now 8 weeks old. Yes, doctor seen, antibiotics taken and scan booked for the week after next. Fingers crossed it is nothing sinister. Still, all of that means neither if us are sleeping properly, so the first half of last week hubby slept in the spare room, it’s my turn now.
We have no spare bed, so I am sleeping on the airbeds that we bought for camping! It’s fine though – I have slept well.
After my epic lie in we did some house sorting and then had home made veg soup for lunch. This afternoon we ventured out to visit the studio of local artist John Hurford. It’s ‘open studio’ month in Devon and an opportunity to see other peoples work.
John has done some amazing work, starting with magazine illustrations from the psychedelic sixties! Now he is into nature –
He doesn’t live far from us, but he is well known in the art world doing album covers, book covers and has exhibited in London galleries.
He’s a very nice man, and seeing his studio was lovely. We bought a copy of his book that he kindly signed.
It is one of a limited edition of 1000 – the small piece of work in the centre of the picture above is original art. He took a large work and cut it into 1000 pieces – each book has its own unique piece of the work!
Home and into the kitchen to do dinner – roast beef, carrots, cabbage and broccoli – hubby had Yorkshire Pudding too. I am now stuffed!
Time to relax before the working week starts all over again tomorrow.
Have a marvellous Monday!
