Brighton calling

I can't wait. I'm going on a solo mission. And I'm going to one of my favourite places. To meet up with 2 of my best girlfriends. What's not to love? Plus it's a great excuse to put up this fabulous Edward Bawden linocut.

I haven't been to Brighton (without kids) for about 6 years. I went to Sussex Uni, so it was my home for 3 years. I'm looking forward to just meandering about the streets aimlessly, stopping only now and then to eat, drink or browse.

It gets better...I'm stopping in at Ikea on my way back home. I have to try and contain my excitement, else it might all just get too much...

Meanwhile, things are picking up here on the work front - I have got the go-ahead on a fantastic repair job - restoring 2 former church trefoils featuring some angels. I'll post some pictures next week once I've received the windows.


  1. Sounds like a real girly day out, enjoy! Looking forward to seeing the church windows.

  2. Thanks Omi - it's my first break from the small people for quite some time!

  3. Have a lovely time in Brighton Flora. My nephew and his wife lived there for several years and held a couple of Brighton Festival Open Studio days in their flat - had a great time and sold some work. Absolutely love the open studio thing. Your glass work is beautiful and delicate - I love Maurice Sendak too.

  4. Thanks for stopping by Cathy, and for your kind words. Yes, I must start doing the Open Studios down here in Bridport again...maybe not this year, but hopefully next when I've got a bit more free time.
