Slim pickens at the two boots today alhtough we had fun taking a detour because of some accident or other near the last but one roundabout. Somehow managed to take the right turning without the sat-nav's help and ended up on the right road. Very warm again. Weston cricket club was first - very busy. Din't get much just some CD bags, which are always useful. Also a plastic water pistol for Archie's collection. 20p. Vagrants was a lot quieter and peope were starting to pack up even though it wasn't even 11 o'clock! I didn't find anyhing. Hazel got a few bits and bobs including a thermometer ( for jam?) a hand blown glass jug, some plants, rusty wire and some other stuff. Roads were fine on the way home. Had tomatoes on toast - not the home grown ones Hazel bought at the boot sale but some that had been in the fridge for ages and just about edible. Yum!
A kind of diary, a log, a ramble, nothing to do with the Flowerpot Men. My life as an artist, a collagist, a rubber stamper, a networker, a collector of all sorts , a letter writer and a postcard maker. Observations about this and that in no particular order.
I grew up in the home counties around London during the 50's and 60's. Went to several art schools including Southend ,Chelsea and Manchester. Trained as a painter and printmaker but now mostly using collage. Collect novelty songs and old mail art amongst other things too numerous to mention.
