Norton Priory


A trip out yesterday to Runcorn and Norton Priory which is a little oasis amongst all the industrial sites around the River Mersey. There's a little gallery too where Treena was showing some work situated at the far end of the walled garden. Above you can see Treena showing Hazel her coloured ice cubes which are melting slowly to stain the white canvas below. Treena was also showing some tiny hand made books made in a similar fashion- stained by ice cubes. We had a nice chat to Treena and then went around the priory to see the relics and the archeological site etc. There was also a large park and garden to explore which was dotted with sculpture and things dangling in trees. Not sure if they were sculpture or plastic bags blown there by the wind.

Managed to find out way home with the Tom Tom. We managed to drag Archie out but he was in a grumpy mood all day for some reason. Oh the embarrassment of ones parents! I suspect I felt the same way at his age.

Well done on your exhibition and notoriety in the local paper. I think you should have worn a beret, mind.

Those ice cubes, what a performance eh?

I've got floooooo. Well, getting over it now. Spent easter feeling sorry for myself in bed.

Glad to hear the nasty flu bugs have abated. We all had it recently and it's no fun. I seem to have a permanently runny nose due to the pills I have to take for high blood pressure- sniffle.
When are you moving to Brighton?

Good luck with the move Roger. I suppose you must be used to it by now!
