Arts, Kites and Musical Delights

Phew! What a weekend...
Isabella, Toby and I went to the launch on our new local community arts gallery, Sprout. It was a drawing free for all, including the walls. Not every day you can draw on walls. Isabella suggested we draw each other and then draw ourselves - can you spot whose who? (clue, I have curly hair!)

Introduced some friends to our new community farm. This is the third week in a row we have been since we discovered it. Yup we are keen. I cannot tell you the satisfaction I get from seeing my kids sitting in clods of ploughed earth.
Our good friend and amazing musician, Jason Carter, finished his month long UK tour with a house concert in our street. A fantastic evening it was too. This is the first time I have seen him play the harp guitar. Just brilliant. Jason also did a jamming session with Isabella and Toby - incy wincy and twinkle twinkle on the harp guitar with Isabella on acoustic and Toby on the drums - very funny!
To end a perfect weekend we had a birthday gathering for little Toby on Tooting Common. It was touch and go whether to abandon ship and retreat to the house as the weather has gone cold, wet and windy. But the stoical British spirit prevailed and we were blessed with sunshine for most of the picnic celebration and fantastic windy weather to fly Toby's new kite. Happy, happy!

  • looks like a lot of fun! We drew all over our kitchen walls when were were planning to renovate it. Then we had a money situation and weren't able to start the project for about a half a year! It gave us plenty of time to enjoy those drawings ;)

  • Glad the drawing event came together! I'm working non-stop so not seen it since it opened yet, but looks great fun.
