What a week...

And the season has only just begun.

The exhibition programme that I have been working on since starting my new job in January is finally kicking off this week.

The opening was glamorous without being intimidatingly snooty: I was so pleased by how many people were happy to chat away with me. I even had a jaw-dropping (well for me!) five minutes with Gok Wan ending in air kisses and hugs! Fingers crossed he'll be working with us sometime in the near future!

The beautiful Ruth's work has gone online and her workshop has sold out in record time!

Tonight sees the launch of the public programme proper so fingers crossed and of course, I'll report back!

Townies and farmers...

A gorgeous weekend with great friends in Norfolk.

There were freshly picked carrots that made their way into our roast dinner  ...


A restored retro trike complete with trunk for all important storage of creeping crawlies and wriggling worms ...


'Paintfacing' ...


Hard grafting at the computer ...


And general frolicking and frivolity ...


Gosh it's great to give children back at the end of a summer weekend. The playing is great, but the peace is better!   


Literally counting the days until our next visit.
