Wednesday, July 13, 2011

Turning tac today and doing something I've not done for sometime.
Designing posters/flyers for forthcoming events at our local hospice, where I've volunteered in the offices for many years.

I started on them yesterday and realise my Publisher skills have become lax so it'll be a challenge to come up with something original and eye catching.
The skills are coming back to me slowly and I'm looking forward to a quiet day at the keyboard for a change.
*note to self* stretch frequently and get up and walk around often.

Enjoy you day.......whatever you have planned emoticon


UPDATE I am pleased with the results and am desperately trying to upload but can't- sorry Debs, but thanks for taking an interest.
But man o man....sitting down for too long does me no favours- need to stretch emoticon

    Uhg I know that feeling, I sit all day at work and I make it point to get up and walk around, get water and I power walk to the bathroom to get the blood pumping.

Hope you made some progress....try to post pics if you can:)

You have inspired me to work a bit on the painting I've started and have been struggling with..... I know, sitting is awful isn't it? You don't have a laptop, hon?? You really should consider investing in it. I have never regretted getting mine. It has opened up the world to me from my recliner or bed. When I had to get my laptop repaired, I could only manage to sit at the computer for about five minutes...which is most unsatisfying. I do believe those creative juices hold healing in them... Good job for pursuing them!

Love you my friend! emoticon

    I would say the title should be "What not to name your boat"/
I used to work for internal revenue and you would be amazed at the names some people have! And they have to carry that through life.
Maybe you can find one on towns with funny names.

Rottingdean was awesome!

Monday, July 11, 2011

We drove down with the radio tuned to a LBC talk channel and relaxed, had lunch at an open hotel www.oldenglishinns.co.uk/rottingdean
/


I had moked salmon and prawn salad and then laid out on the pebble beach on the towels I brought listening to the sea lapping and being warmed by the sun. BLISS.

I wanted to get an ice cream as we walked back to the car but the place was shut so when we stopped for a loo break on the journey back I sneaked into a shop and bought a berry mivvy (berry outer layer and ice cream centre) for me and a frozen orange juice for Pete. It really hit the spot.
Just got back in and had some toast and marmalade and some yogurt with fruit mixed in, still full from lunch but needed to make up the calorie quota, now watching our fav soaps.
A perfeck day emoticon

Rottingdean is famous for Kipling, my fav poet and poem IF
