Forty days

21°C, light clouds & stuff


Break up for summer today. Forty days where I choose what to do; no bells.
Ordered some new prints for the house, included "The Girl With The Pearl Earring". I know everyone is familiar with this one and I am taken in by its charm as much as any. It seems odd to buy a print that is larger than the original though, so it’s only 30cm high.

The others are by Wyeth and another that I’ve forgotten. There will be time to frame them.

    Teaching at home means I don’t really get a holiday as such as Tayla is around me all the time anyway…and Rebecca leaving school has meant the days here just blend into weekends, holidays…oh not forgetting I have to use this time to arrange next terms work..(sigh) but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy it….plus the bells on the alarm clock get a break :)Lovely picture by the way…you’re right it’s well known, but timeless..xx
