Everybody loves the Georgian Houses It seems like certain styles never go out of fashion. Last year Georgian-style houses topped a poll of the most popular home styles. I suspect that people like scale of the house as well as the the pillars and generous sized windows. Nothing says lord of the manor like a […]
Northern Ireland’s Tourism is very impressive. At Whiterocks Beach, just along from Portrush, there is not one, not two but three small carparks and a public toilets which are all free to use. What’s more, there’s another car parks specially for horses and their horseboxes. I will point out though, that there is height restriction […]

wonderful painting, so much expression in her face as she waits
I can sense the dog pulling its owner by the leash!
Thank you, Hein. She was patient and impatient at the same time.
Don’t bother replying, but sending good wishes to your wrists.
Thank you, I am doing exercises that seem to help but its the keyboard action that hurts (its the thumb).
Oh, hell, I accidentally found some keyboard shortcut that sent my comment mid-correction. All I was trying to say is that I send my good wishes to your wrists.
I am forever sending messages way before I am ready.
I love this. I think that our canine friends get so fed up with us humans when we stand around nattering on. This little dog’s expression makes it clear what she is thinking!
You are so right!
I always have to shake my head when somebody says something like “vigorous yoga” or “extreme yoga” or the like. Talk about an oxymoron…anyway, yoga or not, hope you get your hands and/or wrists sorted out soon!
I quite agree. I have never had any problems with yoga before. I’ll have to find another class when I am fully recovered. My husband has banned me from going back to that class.
that must be alarming to have pains in your wrists Emma. How are they now and have you gone to the Doctor about it?
Yes, it is alarming. I am doing hand and wrist exercises and its slowly improving, I think. It’s quite hard to get a doctors appointment these days so I don’t feel like ringing up and saying my hand hurts.
well I hope you are able to get through this bout Emma! Not being able to paint would be like a concert pianist not being able to play.
I am still painting, just not typing at length!!! Thanks for your concern, the thought of not painting does fill me with dread, I must say!
