Many thanks for all the kind messages and a BIG HUG for Claire and Lozzie. I miss you all. Harry seems to be getting on fine and they should have a new car soon. Lucky that it is the school hols.
Here we are in Oz and it’s wonderful to be back and to hear the flute-like magpie thingies outside the bedroom window. Very warm here in Sydney – good thing I worked on the layers principle for clothes – Dale tells me that it is freezing in Perth.
Loved the floral motifs made from all the porcelain that was broken when ornaments were shipped over - see above. Plan to work on this in the sketchbook and print out photos on my baby printer.
On the plane over we proofed Jae’s book which is all about the dynamics of contrast, and it struck me in
Then to Oz where Ian, bless him, had got tickets for the Opera House (had a drink and a bite in the Opera House bar). Luckily it was Pericles with drums – the drums were needed to keep us awake. One of the Bard’s more lighthearted romps and brilliantly produced. The sets and lighting were qute inspirational and some work may come out of this. Coming out onto the floodlit quay with the bridge and the ferries was quite breathtaking.
Yesterday we went to the
Today is my Birthday so we are off to
Not many sleeps now Doreen.
So glad to see you have arrived safely in Oz. Bangkok looks frenetic.
You are having a far more upmarket trip to Sydney than I did last weekend. My big meal out was an Italian cafe in Glebe Point Rd!
The emails are racing around frantically as we prepare to head west, looking forward to meeting you both.
Happy ??? birthday.
I have a friend who has avoided turning 50 for a couple of years by not having a party or acknowledging it!! I've told her she'll have to be fifty next year when I am.
I'm finding it hard to sleep at present Maggie I keep thinking of things I have to do before we leave--and things I have to check out for when we are in Perth.
Too much excitement.
Happy upside down birthday in Oz!
Happy Birthday Maggie, have a great day.
have a great birthday - hope the meal was even better than expected!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gald to hear your son-in-law is on the mend. Hope you have a great trip 'down under' looking forward to reading all about it. Happy Birthday
Happy Birthday Maggie and hope your posh treat came up to expectations. Thankyou for this post with all it's wonderful pics. I love the decorated temple roof and the fearsome figures on guard -such gorgeous patterns and textures. Hope the rest of your trip is as interesting and enjoyable. Glad your son-in-law is making a good recovery.
Happy birthday, dear Maggie. I can see Bangkok inspirations appearing in your work on your return! Give my love to Dale and Ian and the Holey Moleys down under when you see them, and carry on having your wonderful adventure!
Happy birthday Maggie!!!Have a great meal.
Happy Birthday Maggie. Dale offered me a spot in your class and I was very sorely tempted to come but my physio said no plane trips as the knee is misbehaving a bit after the fall off the table. What a bummer and I would have loved to have been there. Hope for lots of blogposts and photos so I dont feel too left out.
Have a wonderful birthday, Maggie. And have a brilliant time in Oz, as well. I'm envying those who get to meet you and take classes from you in person. But I know you'll tell us about it later and am looking forward to that.
Happy Birthday Maggie!
You do make me chuckle - the pie eating and cleaning up after. Sounds like your having a wonderful time. Looking forward to more inspired works of art in future posts.
So glad your SiL is on the mend.
Enjoy the rest of your time in Oz.
Belated Happy Birthday Maggie. Lovely to hear about your trip and the photos are inspirational with lots of ideas for more books we hope? Great one of you both there.
Loved the pictures of Bangkok, it brought back such lovely memories of our trip for my 60th Birthday three years ago. Enjoy every minute of it and please keep blogging
