Late blog due to meetings and wandering around child 2's final year art show. I missed this due to radio commitments of course but needed to see it before it was taken down and everything disappeared into parent's attics and cupboards. Once your kid's art starts leaving the fridge and has to be displayed in an architecture park, your artistic criticism is limited in its usefulness. But it was, nevertheless, brilliant and will be urging The Culture Show to visit immediately.
It is a fascinating, thrilling and still depressing moment when you realise you can't really help with homework anymore. Sure you can generally advise, but actually help whilst knowing the answer is something else altogether. And I was rubbish at art at school so my adult life has been spent (amongst other things) catching up with those who weren't. I used to walk into the National Gallery once a week, select 2 paintings, learn about them, buy the postcards and...put them on the fridge. So the refrigerator is still the best place to display masterpieces after all.
Today it is Nigel's turn again and he has another piece of Indian superfood for us. He cooked from Gurpareet Bains' last cookbook and I use it all the time (huge exaggeration) at home so this will be something to look forward to.
And songs please. Now Team GB have unveiled their motto for the Olympics which is 'Better Never Stops'. Hmmm. Really, really not sure about that. Incorrect, poor grammar, confusing in my opinion. So tunes please with BETTER MOTTOS THAN TEAM GB. Any song title that might be an improvement on 'better never stops' is welcome. Over to you, there is no consultancy fee.
Have a sweet and gorgeous Thursday, see you after 5

    Good Morning Everyone

    Wet & Grey again - Windy as well - Bums!

    Watched a wonderful concert last night on BBC4 - Live from Stirling Castle - Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra from Venezuela and Children from Raplock Stirling called "Big Noise". Little dots as young as 6 playing in the orchestra. Truly Inspiring!

    Back later with an ARFO. Ever the Optimist!

    I were 'well off the mark' with my weather prediction last night. Sorry Jilly!

    Morning all.

    Good morning bloggers.

    I've had a quick lok at the BBC Torch Cam and my shop doesn't feature. The torch-bearer (Mike Park, who is the leader of Cockermouth Mountain Rescue) would have been directly outside at the 16.07min mark, just before he handed over.

    You do get a good picture of the Mayo Statue, though! Unfortunately, it's Earl Mayo, not Lord Mayo ;0)

    P.S. Although only 1/5th of the electorate could be bothered, the good people of Harraby made the correct decision yesterday - we had a resounding success :0D

    Is it morning? So dark here it feels like October.

    May not get a chance for an ARFO as I have a 1-2-1 this morning with lovely boss but will do my best. Schools here break up for 8 weeks holiday today and in the best tradition for summer holidays, it is pouring down.

    Happy Friday everyone.

    #143.... WOW!!! Katy... that's a FANTASTIC hat with its own umbrella!

    I bet the Queen would have liked one of those hats, today at Ascot, especially if the umbrella is built into the hat and springs up at the touch of a button!!!! :o))

    Night night to anyone who is still up! x
