Dark this morning. Rain clouds and dim sunshine. Thick clouds. Two hours later I realised there was also a solar eclipse.
Headache, so no work, but then I decided it was time for a van adventure.
Many of my friends have vans and I have decided that now is the time for me to get one, so that I can carry paintings to and from the framers and off to places for exhibition. So that I can do bigger paintings! So that I can head off to the hills and write.
Ffion's dog Bell said that the back of the van was onlu big enough for a small black dog.
On the way home Nursery Rhymes came back to haunt me and I practiced a hill start in the van while Beau Peep rounded up her flock, including the black sheep.
Ffion, current owner of red van showing how to make the bed work, where the kettle is and how to make tea in bed without getting out of bed. She is not too upset as she is soon to be the owner of a blue van. And if you think you have seen her before she was one of the year's highlights on Countryfile.
