Busy Easter Hols.


Hello there, It feels like ages since I've made a blogpost! The Easter holidays were very busy for me with family visits and lots of errands to catch up with.
There was a garden to tidy...

It's a fantastic view from this garden in more ways than one because I can see both Youngest son's flat and Middle daughter's flat from here PLUS the pretty harbour of course!.
The apartment that this garden belongs to is let out to guests most of the time but it's nice to come here and enjoy the view when jobs need doing.


A working visit to Exeter just had to include a visit to my favourite cafe there,



Their food is delicious and it's so beautiful in every room, even the garden is lovely and colourful as you can see from my photo above. The main attraction for me is their art exhibitions that they have in the upstairs room. 

Back at home again and Eldest daughter and her babies came to stay and we had a day out at a local country park where the children were allowed in to groom the ponies.



It was hot and sunny, so unexpected after all the wind we've been getting up until then!


I'm hoping to be able to do some more painting soon. Today I''m posting several paintings to Germany and the USA, it's so exciting to think of them going to their new homes across the world!

A heartfelt thanks to my lovely customers, past, present and future! xx

Jess, what a cute picture of your daughter and her babies. Is that your house overlooking the harbor, it's so lovely? You know, I have that same red tea cup.

It looks like your granddaughter is having fun petting the pony. Me and my son went to the zoo today and I took lots of pictures. You're never too old to admire the animals. :~)

love, ~Sheri

Lovely to have you back! What a fantastic view. Reminds me of wonderful cornish holidays when the children were small. Eating ice cream on the harbour front... Happy memories! Glad you enjoyed your break. :)
