Ready to Roll

Work is framed, 
labels are made, 
lists have been written 
and ticked off, 
and added to, 
and scored out,
and rewritten....
so it must be time for Art@Ancrum!
I had to be at least semi- organised because we were away for a long weekend, to indulge in a grand family get-together. Hugh's cousin had booked a big house at Symonds Yat (on the River Wye) for us to share and it worked pretty well. 
On Sunday morning Hugh and I finally had a go on segways...and I didn't fall off - not so much as a wobble.
The previous day we'd had a great walk alongside the river then up through wild-garlic-smelling, bluebell-hued woods.


 The journeys there and back for the weekend were less lovely - long hours of rainy motorway stop-start driving. As we headed north and the roads became quieter and infinitely more beautiful, it felt good to be homeward bound.

So, Friday's private view then a long arty weekend for me, while Hugh zooms up to Fort William to do his bit in the Maggies Bike and Hike.

Oh how lovely -Symonds Yat is famous for peregrine falcons, isn't it?
Impressed by the segwaying, and very best of luck to Hugh for the weekend. Some challenge, ....respect!
Hope to get to Ancrum, looks as if it may have to be Sunday afternoon!

I fancy a go on one of those thingies. Looks like fun. I will see you at Ancrum. Good luck to Hugh.
