Starry Night

After school today, while surveying the mural progress (slow...) - we were talking about pictures we remember from school, and this is the one I remember  - Van Gogh's Starry Night.  There was a print of it in our hall at middle school and I spent many assemblies (OK every assembly) daydreaming about it. 
I wonder if it's still there?

Wow - I have proof of a new March temperature record! 

(It dropped to a more believable 21C once the car started moving...)

Mural Progress..

Spent the morning at school painting the mural in the library - it's going well and I'm getting used to my wobbly scaffolding.
Got very hungry when the school dinners arrived though...

My boss's daughter made these and stuck them on top of my work computer - I like them!
I've been pretty busy this week - starting work on a big freelance project, and beginning to paint a mural at my boys' school - I spent this morning very high up on some wobbly scaffolding... 
It was fun being in a school environment and watching small children scurrying around underneath me on little errands.
More house viewings this weekend - better tidy up the lego.

My polka dot swimsuit! 
To the swimming pool, not on the school run....

Also spotted today (get it?..sorry!) this design I licensed to The Original Poster Company - for sale in my local garage - bought one for my mum!

Photo a Day - Smile

I found this cow in a charity shop - he casts a great shadow and makes me smile each time I walk past him 

Photo a Day - Bedside

My bedside reading pile - 'This is my Digger' is a classic..

Photo a Day 1

I'm playing along with Fat Mum Slim's March Photo a Day challenge - I love a good photo a day challenge! 
Here's yesterday's: Up

(Things are looking up - the sun's shining! Cuppa and a crossword on the decking)

However, today's prompt is 'Fruit'. I've been looking for fruit all day and the nearest I've come are some old wrinkly apples in our fruit bowl...

Got any nice fruit? You can join in here.
