My Show and Tell this week is of a special painting of a special place in our family’s life. The scene is of Clifton, Bristol in south west of England and includes the Downs, the Suspension Bridge and the Balloon festival.
We lived for a year in Bristol nearly 5 years ago. We had a wonderful year and made some great friends. We attended a church in Clifton, and often spent the rest of our ~Sundays in this lovely historic part of Bristol. We bought the picture before our return to Northern Ireland, and it brings back memories of people and places when I look it.
The observant and regular visitors among you will know that I have not been just as frequent with my blogging, but life was just too hectic. It was nice to be missed though! I did not of course miss taking my daily photos.
Here what has been going on since my last post.
On Wednesday I had a willing model at our toddler group, including her sun hat and sunglasses (although it was a pity we did not have the weather to match).
Today my son was at the opticians, getting his eyes tested for glasses. I started wearing glasses at an early age, and my eldest daughter did too, so I was not too surprised that he needed them too. The challenge will be getting him to wear them – I will keep you posted.
Fortunately my optician knows of my obsession of taking photos, and blogging (Hi Paul!) so permitted some photo taking during the process. At one stage he showed my son a picture of my eyeball – so you can see it too (not your everyday blog pic).
My son commented it looked like the planet Mars!
In my last post I mentioned I was going pottery painting at Eden Pottery. It was great fun, and the items I made should be ready at the weekend. I promise to share them here unless they turn out really hideous!

It is a bank holiday weekend, so the cottage beckons. Hope you have a lovely weekend – what are your plans?
