I used to go to the market in Marconia most Saturdays in the olden days……
Then no transport and deciding money would be better spent on food and not bus fares and coffee put an end to that.
Today I was offered a lift and it was almost like the old days.
Being at a market usually makes me feel like I’m on holiday. Today with the sun shining and lots of cheerful people about it was fun to wander round and look at the incredible amount of stuff for sale. I bought a pair of scissors for a euro.
Back home I’ve been reading a lot. I found a new Faith Martin book. Last night I gave up on my previous book as I was so annoyed at the completely stupid female detective who was about to get beat up because she wanted all the ” glory” for herself so she didn’t call for back up.
And then I looked at a lot of paintings on youtube as I have the idea that it’s good for me.
After that I went through to the gallery and looked at some of my paintings to see if they inspired me.
I have this canvas all ready to use. It’s an odd size as I made it for a client who then changed their mind.
I have an invite for lunch tomorrow so it’s being a very sociable Easter.
Now it’s wine time , another episode of ” Murder in Suburbia ” and a cosy evening in. The ” olden days” were good, but the present is pretty okay too.
