Well it is quite an age since I have written on this friendly little orange blog. I always think I am too busy and that maybe I don't have the time to be silly or trivial or anything similar that I rather enjoy. I love to be silly, so here I am again. I was speaking to my dear friend Kristi author and blogger supreme and she said 'Oh no don't give up your blog' So I have been thinking and I was going to start another blog with Word Press, clean slate and all that, but I loathe using wordpress it is far too complicated for my simple mine. So I am going to keep my painters,poets and puddings, because that sums me up pretty well. My poetry is fairly appalling but I love it, and I have just bought the Penguin Rhyming Dictionary and a huge version of Roget's Thesaurus, so I might even learn something along the way. I am a chef and I am an artist so I will attach this orange blog to my new websites that are in the process of being created by me and with a lot of help Alice a friend and great web designer. Anyway it was me dear old dad who thought of Painters, Poets and Puddings for me as a title for my blog, so I do have sentimental attachments to it.
I would love this blog to be a chatty chatty site, full of arty art and food food, so if you have anything you want to send me, I shall put it up here. I have been so inspired by my niece Rosie It would be great if I am not the only contributing artist to this site, and just to give you one more link, my eldest sister Candy is producing a fabulous on line magazine called VerandahMagazine.com.au so lots of creativity in the air.
I am working towards my painting trip holidays in Provence. I won't put the link in until I have done the website, that would be a waste of time now. I am also paintin a 3 meter by 140 meter painting which is huge fun. My Tessaskitchen site is up and running and that wouldn't be there without my wonderful sister Sarah's help.
It is pouring with rain outside and David has just gone to pick Jack up from the airport, they are off to the mountains to ski, and they are staying in Neffertitti, my old Renault Traffic Camper van who has now reached the right old age of 30. She is a little tattered and torn, and Jack is now a big lad, so I am not quite sure if they will fit in there together. Jolly glad I am not with them. Its raining here so it is sure to be snowing in the mountains. Snowing and cold, and I don't like skiing down hill very much so I am even more happy to be here writing nonsense in front of a cosy fire.
Oh yes the Japonica is out, and I can't wait for a warm afternoon so I can take out my watercolours and paint the Japonica and the Almonds blossom which is ready to burst bright and happy all the way around the house. Yippeeeeeeeee, Happy days, spring is coming, the warmth will be coming and with that even greater happiness than I have now.
