White Winter

The snow finally came to Henley at the beginning of the week. My lttle miniature schnauzer on the balcony is happily accompanied by his little friends as he braves the cold.
And the glass mosaic I made whilst living in Bangkok is suffering a little.
But the cars outside look more comfortable.
Winter is jigsaw time, and this is one we finished yesterday. It’s a Wentworth wooden puzzle of the painting I made of the Queen’s barge ‘Gloriana’ together with the Dunkirk little ship ‘L’Orage’ when they came to Henley during the Boat Festival.
On thursday we saw a lovely little film called ‘Finding Your Feet’ Improbably it tells the story of a middle-class snob taking refuge with her bohemian sister after she discovers her husband is having an affair with her best friend. Starring many well-known actors from your television screen, it’s happy, hilarious, sad at times, but so delightful.
Timothy Spall, Imelda Staunton, Joanna Lumley, Cecilia Imrie, David Lawrence and Josie Lawrence, they all contribute to making this such a watchable film.
