So Thursday, shop is shut, but a delivery of reprint greeting cards is due after Tuesday’s sales. I woke early and headed down as the sunrise was going on.
I missed the delivery, which apparently came later and I will fetch from neighbour tomorrow. I had waited until09:00 and done some measuring up for new shop furniture fitting ideas for 2022 as I have successfully settled in to my new location since start in September.
We had the decorators in the kitchen this morning, I was on drinks duty. Simon, it turns out was at school with local artist friend Josh Hollingshead.
I did some Christmas letters. Anne was at the hairdressers – we met at the pier afterwards for a walk and then lunch at the 1859 cafe on the pier a great bowel of modules marinere for me.
Afterwards we headed along the seafront and visited some friends at the beach huts and then into town and a coffee at Java including selling two art sketch pads.
We headed home. I got on with ordering some art materials including new mounts for my A4 drawings and prints. Also an order came in from a friend who used to live in Swanage for some Christmas cards – an order to fulfill tomorrow.
In the evening we went to an Artsreach gig at St George’s church,Langton Matravers to see Amazon Diagne, Corey Seznec and Marius playing a mixture of African pieces inc. west Africa, East Africa esp. Ethiopia, and fusion pieces inc, Breton French. The music and musicianship was great plus I did my old favourite live gig drawing. At the end I gave the musicians their pictures which they were pleased with.
Home via the seafront and we could see the pier lights in the light rain.
A day of many activities and a relaxed one too.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-6984-6381d27cf2308' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=6984&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-6984-6381d27cf2308' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-6984-6381d27cf2308' data-title='Like or Reblog'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
